Let's hope Survivor starts. It's utter madness that we have to live like this... never knowing if it's gonna start or not, only getting to see it three years after America and a year after it aired here. Bah!! 

I'm very pleased to see shero Ciera's back - yay!! I already want her to win to make up for her loss to Tyson on Blood vs Water. I'm pleased to see Tasha too - and Shirin - even though she's gonna be a problem I'm sure.

I’m so glad Insecure is back! I just hope its not true that Lawrence won’t be in this season.

 Unbelievable, gobsmacking and so UNcool I don't even have the energy to express how pathetic it is....

If you missed the butchering of Survivor last night - this is what happened: SABC3 once again mangles the debut broadcast of a new Survivor season for the 3rd consecutive time, cuts out the entire immunity challenge of Cambodia Second Chance and plays music videos to fill empty playout time.

I watched the premiere last night and kept thinking what a huge shame it is that SABC3's butchered the show because it's still as brilliant as ever. The fact that that we're so far behind and that we can't trust the broadcast anymore - it sucks in the strictest sense of the word.

The premiere was riveting - felt like seeing old friends again and was as funny as ever. It remains the most fascinating reflection of the human condition and social dynamics.
