Survivor: Exile Island

New Rule (yes I stole that from Bill Maher): If you go on a reality show, you're not allowed to bitch about missing your family. Not that it's unusual to miss your family when away from them for an extended period of time. If I had to leave my family for over a month, I would miss them a lot. However, I have a simple solution to this problem; I don't go on reality TV shows. It works out pretty well, and it's not that hard to do.

Oh, and speaking of Survivor, if they're just going to show that one girl's boobs all the time, maybe they should call it: Survivor: Cleavage Island.

Oh, dude. Don't get me started on that asshole Shane. What a complete fucking jerk. "I want to go home. Really, I want to go home. I hate this. I'm miserable. We're all miserable and I'm going to make a point of this in front of the other tribe. This sucks. Send me home." (5 minutes later) "Changed my mind. We're going to vote you off instead." Seriously, the only thing worse than his behavior was the clueless assholes on his tribe who didn't immediately reassess this guy and send him packing.

I will say this: With the exception of Mr. Miyagi (Bruce the Karate Guy, who I like), the tribes did a phenomenal job of sorting themselves into the Asshole Tribe and the Non-Asshole Tribe. Never seen a better prime-time example of like attracting like.

Mrs. Toast and I are rooting for the astronaut, the fighter pilot (who's from our town!) and Miyagi-san.

Yeah, on a show like that, anyone who wants to give up should be immeadiately obliged. The only excuse not to that I can imagine is if it's so far along in the game that you're firmly entrenched in an alliance with them, and their exit would leave you hanging. That's clearly not the case here, since it's only day 6.

Well, I see what you're saying, except that we've only seen one team win and one team lose, and it's a lot easier to see the assholiness when people start to lose, so there are probably enough to go around.

I don't care who wins. I usually don't develop any favorites until shortly before whoever I like gets voted off. Last season, I was firmly against Gary Hogeboom, only because of his miserable performance in the NFC Championship game in 1982, but I still found myself rooting for him over those other idiots anyway.

I will say that Shane makes for good TV though...
