    Survivor Heros vs Villians - Anyone Going To Watch????

    I've got my work Survivor game all ready to go. Just wondered if you were going to watch and what you thought about the Heros vs Villains.

    I'll be watching Survivor AND Amazing Race. I'm surprised that Amazing Race didnt' wait til after the Olympics since their ratings aren'ts quite as strong as Survivor's. I know it could conflict on the 14th with Men's Oly Short Program. Well, that's what Tivo is for....

    I think Heroes vs Villians is a great idea. Over at www.ew.com, Jeff Probst has been intereviewed a few times and they had pre-competiton interviews with each of the contestants. Jeff usually writes a weekly blog each week, as well.

    I'm wondering of Russell will be one of the 1st voted out. After all, they only know that he's a villian and the others might just eliminate him as they don't know anything about his game or him. This edition started taping within days after the prior season finished taping - so, none of the others even saw a minute of Russ's season.

    Russ didn't even know if he won or not. I think he wuz robbed. He deserved to win. I'm excited. My 2 work Survivors are Stephanie LaGrossa and James Clement. They're both Heros so I don't know how long they'll stay in the game. I think it's going to be a hoot watching the Villains trying to out wit each other.

    I'm going to go crazy trying to decide what to tape & what to sit & watch & tape during the next 2 weeks. I'm going to enjoy Survivor this season. My 2 favorite females are on the Heroes (Stephanie & Amanda) & the 2 funniest men (Boston Rob & Russell) are playing with the villains. Hope Rob is not seriously injured as I want him to stick around for awhile. I don't care who wins just as long as it's not one of the previous million dollar winners.
    I'll be watching AR 16 too when it begins on the 14th.

    Fortunately, I'm a night owl - I'll just be exhausted for the next couple of weeks and luckily I can record 2 things simultaneously on my DVR. It's also good that AR and Survivor are at 8pm - so, on free skate nights, I'm pretty comfortable with watching Olympics 'later' since the top 6 won't air until the last hour to 90 minutes of the night's broadcast. I'm also transferring Olympics from my TiVo to laptop and will be burning to blu-ray after some editing. Also, no skating is being aired on Friday's - so, i can catch up with project runway and Survivor and Friday's, as well.

    Not trying to be callous or rude, but, due to time zone differences, I would anticipate that there would be spoilers after the show begins to air on the east coast. I like to make comments when they are fresh on my mind and don't wait til midnight east coast time to post.

    On other sites, there are usually weekly threads which makes it easier to avoid spoilers. I've noticed that Golden Skate threads tend to continue through the entire season.

    I do understand not wanting to be spoiled with results. I'm still 'ticked off' at my former co-worker who asked me if I wanted to know who won the ladies' gold medal at the 98 Olympics. I told him 'no' - so, he told me 'the one with the triple-triple won' Unbelievable that a skating fan wouldn't know who that was in 1998.

    Watching and on the Villians side even though can't stand Boston Rob I hope they vote off Rupert 1st he seems more arrogant this time around. Alos thing Russell got robbed last season he was the only one to really play the game. Will admit when last season started I didn't like Russell.
    The hero's need to send big mouth James packing next time around. Stephanie didn't deserve what he said to her, wasn't her fault both times she played all her tribe member got voted off and she was last person standing.
    Also watching Amazing Race lord help Jeff, Jordan's comment is stuck in my head are we going to China!!

    I believe Survivor Heroes vs. Villians will ruin regular seasons for me... I love love love the all star editions and this one is by far the most entertaining season in my 19 seasons of being obsessed with this show... Boston Rob v. Russell? No contest. To make this season perfect, I need Boston Rob and Cirie to join forces at the merge. Not that it would be fair... And was Coach good looking on his season? I don't think so.

    And let's keep it real: James in Boxer Briefs. Yum Yum Yum. Even my husband understands just how beautiful that man is... he called me at my hotel to say: "watching Survivor? he has on boxer briefs tonight." Its great when one's soulmate understands them that well...

    Russell is the villain you love to hate..............the previews hinted that he might be the next to go. Hope not. He makes it interesting.................Being on the west coast, I realize I run the risk of a "spoiler" popping up on a thread. That's not a problem for me. If I wanted a total surprise, I wouldn't read the posts until after I saw an episode myself...........42

    KW, James is gorgeous but I am a little disappointed in him. He seems sooooooooo angry and with his strength not a good thing. BTW, he's my survivor in my work game. I just don't want him to get bumped off right away.

    Not sure what's up with James's anger issues either.

    Jeff Probst's blog always offers some interesting insights to the game.

    http://popwatch.ew.com/2010/02/26/je...vor-episode-3/

    At this point, I'm rooting for Boston Rob to win his own million. He's still got the mind of a villian with the work ethic of a hero. Couldn't believe how he exerted himself during epsiode 2's puzzle challenge after collapsing from flu earlier. Not as scary as dreadlock Russell's collapse, but still worrisome.

    While I can appreciate how well the Heroes work together at camp and at the physical part of the challenges, there some weird dynamic that makes them dysfunctional at playing the game well without having strategy feel personal.


    Can't believe how much the heroes have dominated the physical part of the challenges and just lose on the puzzles. Imagine if Courtney had to compete in that last mud pit challenge....

    I've never really like Boston Rob but this year he seems less arrogant and so I am kind of liking him.

    Do you think it's because they're supposed to be the "nice guys." Do nice guys really have strategy???
