Tonight is when it seems the fall schedule of television shows kicks off for me. I have to say that one of my favorite (or maybe most watched) television shows is Survivor. I remember Brad Butler telling me about it and it’s premise. But I couldn’t watch the first few episodes because it came on Wednesday night while I had work conflicts and I didn’t have a VCR that could record off of my rabbit ears antennas.
But I caught up w/ Jeff Probst and his friends just after the merge and was hooked. I’ve been a fan since. I think the show is a pretty good study of social interactions and there are many different “strategies” players assume. Some work and work well in different ways. While some crash and burn pretty quickly.
But the season premiere tonight begins a much different. Before they’ve divided the survivors up in gender specific tribes or age specific groups. But this season, when the divide up in race specific groups, some people seem to have a problem with it. I think it’s pretty cool. But we’ll see how it all shakes out in the end. There will be four tribes w/ five people each: one tribe of Hispanic, one of Asian, one of Black, and one of White.
I think it will be good, yet again.
