Anyone still watching Survivor here? New season seems interesting, and two guys are quite good-looking - Dan and Alec.

To be fair, I only turned on the new Survivor mid-episode, during the "challenge in the rainstorm."  Except for the plus-sized guy (who was later airlifted out for that unfortunate boating back injury), I had trouble distinguishing what made one side Davids and another side Goliaths.

Yes, there was a middle-aged lady who doesn't exercise (guess that qualifies her as a David); otherwise, they just looked like two teams (again, maybe difficult with all the wet clothes and such).

So, another Team Immunity challenge, another race digging under a log, climbing some ladders, and of course, a puzzle at the end as a nod to "brainpower."  Even recording the show and speeding through the ads, for me it's more of the same as the past 327 seasons.

[  With that done, I binged half of the limited series Maniac on Netflix, and actually felt my synapses fire.  Jonah Hill and Emma Stone are great in this trippy sci-fi treat.

I hope you enjoy Maniac, colonelguise -- after four episodes, the title remains a bit of an enigma, as it's by no means a slasher series (so far).  Rather, much more cerebral and scary in that "science-out-of-control" way.

And I don't mean to poop on the joys of Survivor, lol.  I have enjoyed those shirtless guys over the years.  But I feel that this David vs. Goliath premise is not the most original.  Wasn't there a Brains vs. Brawn theme not long ago?

In my fantasy viewing world, next season of Survivor should be Retired Porn Stars vs. Tele-Evangelists.  Once tribes are merged, see what kind of alliances and surprises that would bring!  (Immunity idols are based on crucifixes and dildos, of course.)

OH, I forgot to mention, on this David vs. Goliath they have Mike White, a mucho quirky actor/director, and if you have yet to see his Chuck & Buck (2000), it's a true indie gem.

Mike's bio:  https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0925234/?ref_=tt_ov_wr

The film:  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0200530/?ref_=tt_urv


(And now I understand the D vs. G premise:  essentially, the Haves vs. the Have-Nots, the Entitled vs. the Working Joe.  Hmm....   Blinking  )
