Survivor: Caramoan - Episode One

Survivor Caramoan Fans vs. Favorites Gota tribe
Oh how I wish I could have the feeling
they're all feeling right then!
Survivor is BACK! The wait is over and we're finally here. This episode was solid, but the jury is still out on how good this season will be. Well, the season's already done technically, but we haven't had any clear indications yet as to whether or not it will be awesome. I do love the premise of repeating the Fans vs. Favorites experiment, and though the choice of Favorites (or Heroes as Jeff called them in the challenge!) is dubitable, it's something new and I agree with Jeff's statement that there comes a point where you need to make new all-stars.

I'm happy to say so far my predictions have been quite accurate -- though of course it's still early days -- and with Shamar in particular, though not for the better. I'm still waiting to see how Laura and Julia will do as we didn't get to see much of them. Definitely impressed with Cochran and Dawn's swing vote turned controlling move, and excited to see more. I'm SO GLAD that Cochran isn't on the chopping block right off the bat. And I'm also excited to see the former Redemption Island players leading their own games rather than play under Boston Rob. The rest of my thoughts are in the video.

Favorite quote of the episode: "I might be seeing a new Dawn." --Cochran
