We love our new PVR we got with our high def TV, no more tapes and we can record as many things at a time as we want. But yeah, it's a tough time of year to keep up!!!

We've faithfully watched every season, I honestly can't think of an episode of Survivor we've missed unless we've been on a plane and forgot to ask somebody to record it!!

And Amazing Race starts on Sunday, I believe, which is my number one favourite reality show.

I'm with Bev on A.R, as my #1 show, but do love Survivor and have never missed an ep it.
Looking forward to both.

I saw that Survivor was shot in high def for the first time -- according to Jeff P. apparently it is like watching in black and white vs color -- you see so much more --including "every wrinkle " on his face.

I could have written this post, except for the PVR part. Tell me more please. Is it different from tivo? My husband and I have to arm wrestle over whose shows to record.

No it isn't. you have the best PVR already with a tivo.

All the current models support two tuners. What is your programming source?

I think you can start a new thread to discuss last night's episodes. That way those who haven't watched them yet will know not to read the thread.

Just a brief comment. I sure hope the Fang (red) team steps it up. I really hate when one team dominates the entire time. Although when the one gal from Kota (yellow) made the comment about how she could never see their team losing, ever, you know that has to be the kiss of death. :hysterical:

Bob the Physics teacher is my new Yao Man. I also liked Ken and the Doctor- Marcus I think. No one has really stood out for the ladies for me yet.

Well, no one will replace Yao Man, but Bob is pretty awesome. I like the way he just goes ahead and gets things done. "That's the way we do things in Maine." :cheer:

Bob reminds me of Bill Nye (the Science Guy). What sucks is that he's going to do so surprisingly well, but then will be betrayed by his "alliance." As he's already the planned fifth member for one group.

I love Survivor!!!! Have watched every season. Also got hubby hooked on. along with Amazing Race and Apprentice. This year is great. Russell is a gotta love him kind of guy. Hated him so much at first, but he is a player. If he finds the 3rd immunity idol tonight, I'll just die. But pretty soon, the snake will bite himself. :eek:

Okay, Brian. I'll play. ;)

I'm kind of disappointed in this year's Survivor. Talk about wasted potential. The only player doing anything is bald Russell, and I think he's a total jerk. Be that as it may, he seems like he's on his way to pulling a Richard Hatch, if he can just stay in the game. As time has gone on, I've decided that even though I don't like him, he deserves to win the money. The rest of the group are a bunch of idiots.

Curious to see how this one plays out...

Dave

Yep, I hope he wins too. And when he played the idol last week, it was a great moment. Finally somebody actually uses one of those things instead of leaving with it in his pocket.

This hasn't been a great season. The complete wipeout of Foa Foa means we don't really know any of the Galu players that well. And all that rain means not much scheming can go on.

Watched it tonight, and I also haven't been a Russel fan because of the way he spoke about some of the women in the first couple of weeks. Although some of them where pretty worthless as players.

Was hoping he wasn't going to find anything tonight. Although I have no favorites either.

Well, this is shaping up to be a much better season than I thought. The funny thing is how shocked the old Galu tribe looks every week!!

It's getting better every week...I agree with what others have said about Russell...he's a jerk, but he's so survivor-smart. As for the gal who left last night, the surprise on her face was priceless!

OMG!!:eek: That is how the rest of the Galu tribe looked.

:mad: Russell. How lucky can 1 person get. He must have some huntin' dog in him. I think they will target him soon.
