    Well, another season has come and gone, and based on the participation here and other plac, I think it's time for a reboot. I wish they would do a season called "Back to Basics", and, well, go back to basics. No HIIs, no gimmicks, just a bunch of people, trying to live together and win the game. Maybe fewer huge rewards, back to just one person winning rewards. For one thing, this would put the focus back on the players and let us get to know them. let us see their personalities, and let see who works at campaign, who proved, who's lazy.

    I have no idea who built shelter, who got food and water and firewood, because all the time went to Ghost Island, or hunting idols.
    I totally agree with all of the above.

    I'll be happy to have someone to talk to about it again, so hopefully, it catches your attention this fall!

    I plan to watch the fall 2018 Survivor--since I ditched this show by the third week. Simply because I feel I have let a friend down! Is that not silly?
    maybe they'll come up with a miracle reboot!

    I have to admit that I feel a gap in my viewing week--without having watched this season. I plan to check out the fall show, to see if things have drastically changed or improved.
    It's like losing a member of the TV family. I truly hope that the winner of this season is someone the TV audience overwhelmingly supports.

    It looks like they are doing the first gross eating challenge that I've seen in ages. I'm excited/grossed out to finally see this again.

    You got it right Lanfear! My favorite Survivor was Australia--after which (I think his name was Corey) a second time around fellow told Jeff, that he " just could not find the adventure"
    in the next Survivor he was in. I really HATE all the plotting and backstabbing.
    IMO, the last three winners were total jerks. The worst was the girl I call "yellow bikini valley girl" .

    Adventure should replace in-fighting and plotting against people.

    I'm still watching, getting kind of frustrated with how much of a non-issue Ghost Island is turning out to be. Seems more often than not, they don't get a chance to play, and when they do get the chance, they don't want to risk losing their vote. I wish GI featured something different each week, because it's already gotten old. I was excited about the idea of past mistakes at the beginning, but have we seen anything so far but James' block idol and the legacy advantage?

    How many seasons has it been? 34? I finally did it--erased my recordings. I guess it happens to all series eventually.
    Just can't get into this.

    I am tired of all the advantages too. I watch every season anyway though. At least I like this cast better than last season - I quit somewhere around halfway through last time.
    Yes. New cast with old flashbacks. My interest is based on watching how they all survive, food and weather etc. Lately it is all gossip, sabotage, and hidden idols.
    OY! I whine, but still watch!

    I was just thinking to myself, that it really is pathetic when you are so loyal to a show that you cannot just delete and move on.
    I put it down to the cold, snowy winter we are having in the north east. If nothing else, my husband gets to ogle women on a beach in bikinis
    and the beautiful scenery, and I get to watch yet another male make a fool out of himself by thinking men are physically stronger than women.

    Finally got around to watching the long premier episode. I must admit to being not clever enough to keep up with the notes found in the idol packages, on ghost island, where a
    member goes by volunteering. At least they don't face tribal. Complicated. They have to make up for the failures of past survivors.
    I was hoping they would completely stop burying idols altogether, and make these people fend for themselves. I think I am watching by sheer loyalty or habit!!!
