Having a tough time getting myself motivated to update my blog. Not that I don’t have a lot of interesting stuff to write about, its just that it has seemed like a daunting task to actually take some time and sit down an write. Not sure why, as things are going good
Its been an interesting season on Survivor. On one hand, I am enjoying the show like always as a study of human psychology. After 42+ seasons, I still find the concept fascinating and enjoy seeing how the contestants handle all the different scenarios that are thrown at them. I find it motivating to see people push themselves past what they though they were capable of. Its one of the main reasons I want to be a contestant, to be put in a tough situation and see if I could dig deep and power through.
On the other hand, this season seems a bit to calm and relaxed. There is no real stand out player (At this point, I’m rooting for Gabler) and as mentioned earlier, a lot of the players seem to be content with just being there. Its hard to tell if there are moves being made, and players discussing strategies simply based on what is on TV. Also I miss the Ponderosa Videos that used to give a great insight into the contestants once they were voted off. I know there are the exit interviews with Dalton Ross, and it looks like there are some TicTock Videos of players, but that’s just not my thing.
As far as the rest of the season, with a lot of Idols still in play, and a few players looking to make some moves, it should liven up a bit as we only have a few more episodes left before the finale.
The NY Football Giants continue to win games that in the past few seasons they would have defiantly lost. They should be able to beat Detroit this Sunday, before heading to Dallas to face the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. Should be an exiting game to watch after our family feast.
I am going to try and catch some of the Lehigh / Lafayette game tomorrow at a watch party. There is a brewery that is owned by a Lehigh Alum on the Jersey shore that is televising the game, and I’m hoping to meet up with some friends and catch up over a few beers
As far as TV, I am almost caught up with Andor – I am really enjoying it. They have done a great job of creating a story within the Star Wars Universe that feels real and emotional.
I have also been enjoying CSI: Las Vegas – Was a super fan of the Original CSI, and like how they have continued the show after some time away. Would love some more of the earlier cast (George Eads, Eric Szmanda, Laurence Fishburne, Ted Danson, and Elizabeth Shue) come back for a few episodes. I think they could do so really cool things.
Am also watching Manifest on NetFlix after it was cancelled by NBC. Been watching from the beginning and for the most part am enjoying the show. Like most of NBCs SCI Fi drams (Heroes, Revolution, ..) they are kind of sappy and never really give you and answer. But I do enjoy it for what it is and will watch till the end
And finally, after 11 Seasons, The Walking Dead ends it run on Sunday night. I have been watching since the beginning and am really looking forward to how things wrap up. There is still “Fear The Walking Dead” as well as several new spin-off, so the Walking Dead Universe will live on. Like Star Trek, the Walking Dead would have its ups and downs, but the ups were really good making it worth the few downs. I am a big fan and it will be missed.
Going to try and jot down things that interest me the next few days and take some time to write one more post before Thanksgiving next Thursday.
