Have you ever watched Survivor without sound? It’s super awkward. I don’t advise it. I was with my parents at a random pizza place in Chicago and we watched Survivor without sound. It was like watching a season full of Ricks. (I did re-watch the episode later with sound, I’m not *that* lazy.)
This episode was a slightly ‘meh’ for me. It was fairly predictable and I do wish Cochran could have gone farther in the game, especially after his controversial flippage. However it is still Survivor and thusly awesome so I will touch on a few points I found interesting. Cue Bloggy-Blog!
CREEPY OR CUTE? Was this episode slightly creepy? Cochran makes a good point when he said the BRACES are a bit cult-like. I know people on my season were made fun of for being cult-like, but at least we had fun. We had “Stealth R Us” and the “Three Degrees” and everything was kept pretty light and fluffy. This cult is a bit more dramatic. I’d be legitimately nervous to do anything against the family, especially with Brandon Hantz around and especially if I heard that eerie music rolling in.
PRINCE/PRINCESS ALBERT- Okay someone make a decision. Is he Prince Albert or Princess Albert? Not like it really matters in the grand scheme of things but a girl has got to know. Now normally I’d probably look down on laziness, but I’m not actually playing with Albert, and it’s weirdly somewhat endearing. Let’s just say Albert makes lazy look hot. Speaking of HOT, has anyone checked out Sophie lately? She is looking fine…the island really brings out her eyes.
COCHRAN- Darn it. So, I’ve voiced openly that I’m team Cochran, so it was tough to see him go. But unfortunately, the BRACES are strong, and the CRABS are even stronger. He had a few great moments this episode, however. My favorite Cochran moments this episode were when he admitted that he gives his mom massages (joke or not, it’s priceless and I hope it’s true), when he channeled the super awesome Fairplay and lied to his tribe (birthday/ dead Grandma…same things these days), and every time he did a confessional in that futon-stump. I effing love that stump. They should just give Cochran that stump for him to put in his living room.
LOVE AT FIRST SHAKESPEAREAN QUOTE- Coach quoted Shakespeare. I love Shakespeare. I think I may have fell in love with Coach for the first time. Not really, but maybe. Perhaps if I go to the finale and he whispers sweet Shakespearean nothings into my ear I will keep my mind open to the idea.
SO NOW WHAT?! So Cochran is gone. Brandon pretty much told us Edna is going next. Can this pretty please not be the case? I’m really hoping some craziness goes down real soon. All I know is that Ponderosa is going to be awkward central when Cochran arrives. Hopefully Mama Meehan will at least be nice. Let’s face it, it would be awesome if Cochran beats Ozzy in the duel, but Fish Boy is on a mission.
What did you all think? Any final three predictions? Are you sad to see Cochran go? If people are really playing the game, wouldn’t they want to take someone like Cochran to the end? Should I take ax-wielding lessons from Sophie? Did part of you want to be lazy with Prince Albert in the hammock? Does anyone else love Shakespeare? That’s all I have. Thanks for tuning in!
