Well, I wouldn't want to miss it either, Michelle!  I'll be sure to check it out too.  Thanks!

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Tonight in the usual Thursday CBS 8 p.m. timeslot (EST) is a "Look back" at the previous 19 seasons of Survivor, aptly named "Surviving Survivor.

I recorded "Surviving Survivor" not really certain I was
going to watch it.  

Well tonight I did.  

Very interesting show.  A real primer for someone 
like myself that has only recently gotten into Survivor.
Learned much about the past 10 years and some of 
the more notable contestants.  Certainly gave me some
insight into the personalities that will be vying against
each other starting this upcoming week.

The only concerns I have is that I hope this all-stars
season remains "real."  By that I mean it isn't like
we are starting off on an island with people who don't
know each other.   The last thing I want to see are
Survivors with a celebrity mentality hamming it up
for the camera.

Looking forward to the premier.

Well, you can count on that Ron.  Some of these guys have some super-sized egos.

But it still should be one rockin' good time!  /img/vbsmilies/htf/thumbsup.gif

I'm a little worried that CBS--in its promos--is already beating us over the head over-and-over-and-over-again with Russell's bravado that he is the best player of all time.  I'm hoping this doesn't turn into Survivor: Russell II.

I agree. The same thing could have been a problem when they did All-Stars a few years back, but I still enjoyed that season and I think this time around might be even better.

I had no idea they were going with a TWO-hour premiere!  THAT is awesome! 

I have always thought a two-hour premiere really helps to establish the cast of characters so much better.  Even though long-time viewers already "knows" something about this group, it'll be nice to have extra time to watch them start to interact.  And, of course, there are newbies to the show (like Ron) who won't know some of the cast of earlier seasons.  So, it's all good.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/thumbsup.gif

I actually crammed like I was preparing for a final exam for this season, over the past month I watched all of the relevant seasons, the one's that are on DVD anyway, so that I would know these people lol.

Russell and Coach I already knew but many of them I didn't because they were from earlier seasons.

I'm primed and set, bring it on! /img/vbsmilies/htf/cool.gif

I'm assuming, John, that you are familiar with HTF-Survivor favorite--Amanda?  /img/vbsmilies/htf/biggrin.gif

I also meant to mention that the survivor I'll be rooting for most this season is Rupert, love that dude! He played his two back-to-back seasons with a lot of heart and strength (he ripped a tree down with his bare hands for cryin' out loud lol) and I came to regard him as my favorite of all time.

You've got a lot of company with that assessment.  Rupert is truly a fan favorite. 

I looked at the cast list just now to see if I had a favorite.  It's just such a fascinating group that I am really looking forward to it.

My boy Rupert is pretty nonexistent so far I'm sorry to say, I hope that his toe doesn't put him out if the pain gets too bad.

That first challenge was both brutal and, well, hot. /img/vbsmilies/htf/smile.gif

Lots of eye candy this season that's for damn sure, between Stephanie (has a very Eva Mendes quality about her), Parvati, Candice (reminds me of a younger Robin Wright before she became Penn) and of course Amanda there's much to enjoy. /img/vbsmilies/htf/biggrin.gif

Too bad about Sugar aka The Queen of Exile Island, I liked her.

It's almost cute how Russell and Coach are becoming best good friends, they were even playin' seesaw together...awwww. /img/vbsmilies/htf/laugh.gif

To this day, I'm not sure if there's another woman as hot as Amanda in the Survivor environment (no make-up, just natural looks), truly stunning, and this season is no different, nice lighting at tribal council for her, as well.

I've started fast-forwarding through most of the Russell confessional footage, same ol' crap from him.  Blah blah blah.

Oh yeah, that warm glow cast on her by the fire at council really became her.

I don't think a season of Survivor has gone by since I've joined the HTF that I haven't decried the increasingly violent challenges on the show.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/thumbsdown.gif

I loved it when Tom brought up Cirie's name for elimination.  He's a sharp guy.  Too bad he couldn't convince the rest.  Her laugh goes right through me. 

Boston Rob's still got it.  Getting Coach & Tyson to climb that tree.  He sure knows how to play people.  I'll never forget the heated conversations between him & Lex in the last All-Stars.

Jerri and Coach.    Ewwwwwwwwww!  Maybe Hanson can show us what their offspring would look like.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/laugh.gif

Amanda was rocking that bright green bikini.  Wonder if anyone's got a screen capture from that first challenge?  /img/vbsmilies/htf/wink.gif  And somehow James got even beefier since last time.

What the hell was going on in China that they constantly blurred her backside but it's perfectly acceptable now?

Not that I'm complaining...

Aww, that's too easy:




As to which one.... take your pick.

Glad to see Sugar go!  I absolutely hated Sugar on Gabon, and she pretty much ruined that season for me.

I've always had the TV crush on Stephanie.  She is amazing.  Always been one of my favorite survivors. 

Loving the season so far.  For me this has the makings of being the best season ever.
