Survivor: Heroes vs Healers vs Hustlers Season Preview

Hello and welcome back to our coverage of America’s #1 TV show (in 2001), Survivor!

Yes I am back. My determination to cover any entire season of Survivor for the first time is as strong as Survivor’s willingness to…survive. I promise my metaphors will get better as the season goes on.

For real though, this season marks Survivor’s 35th season! That is a remarkable achievement and I honestly hope for 35 more. I’m a greedy son of a bitch.

 

Much like how the producers of Survivor change things up, this season we are doing things a little different. I looked around the Survivor recap landscape and I saw power rankings, long winded recaps, strategy overviews, story telling analysis, and even edit analysis. So I thought long and hard about how to stand out from the crowd and how to be creative. Which led to me stealing a classic format from sports blogs: Winners and Losers!

Yes this is the place to come find out who the “Winners” and the “Losers” are of each episode. I’ll even throw in some “Hot Takes” to keep your interest.

Take the jump and find out who my Winners, Losers and Hot Takes of the preseason of Survivor 35.

Survivor Game Changers preview

As I slowly sift through all the amazing (and overwhelming) preseason content for Survivor: Game Changers (the 34th season of the popular reality show) I realize something about my fandom. I’m obsessed with this show. It’s my favorite form of entertainment without a doubt. I listen to podcasts and I follow multiple Survivor writers. Which means when they do an All-Star season (only the 4th All-Star in their history) I like to bathe myself in all of the pregame content. Why? Because it is pure fan service for us hardcore fans. We have obsessed about these people for years and years. We know way too much about them. We have replayed their best moves in our minds like a basketball junkie would replay everything Lebron James does. This is like the NBA All-Star game and the Pro Bowl all in one, except with a major difference, these players care about this game. This game will change some of their lives and legacies.

And to be honest, these All-Star type seasons are best when you know every detail about the players. That’s because there is a high sense of surrealism to the idea that a person from Season 2 is playing with people from Season 33. It doesn’t make sense, it shouldn’t be happening and we should feel absolutely spoiled that it is. But I can’t help to wonder how a “casual” fan will enjoy a season full of people they either don’t remember or never saw play in the first place. And that’s why I am here today.

I want to take new fans, casual fans and any other type of fan into my world of hardcore fanship. I want to set your plate for why you should be excited for this season. I want to help you differentiate between these players so you can decide who you want to root for without feeling left behind. But I will warn you, there are huge spoilers below. This cast has players from 18 of the 34 seasons including three winners. Then again if you are planning to watch this season you will run into these spoilers anyway. But I wanted to give fair warning.

Take a jump with me for a deep dive into who is playing and my predictions for season 34 of Survivor. Continue reading

Alright I know what you’re thinking, where the hell was last week’s episode recap? How the hell were you, my faithful readers, supposed to know what the hell was going on in this crazy game of Survivor without my expertise? Well I have plenty of excuses. I was leading a goat hunt. Don’t believe that? Fine, I was being a dictator at work and telling everyone what to do. Still no? Okay I was definitely spending all my time thinking about how to solve a word puzzle like the dirty millennial I am.

Okay throw your seashell in the bush and take a jump with me as I lay out all the bad, poor and questionable strategy from the last episode. Spoilers below.

Survivor Millennials vs Gen X Episode 1: Kappa Kappa Survivor

Come on in guys for my Survivor Millennials vs Gen X (I’m already sick of typing that dumb name) Episode 1 review where I use classic Survivor quotes to assess the latest episode.

Before we jump into my assessment of the latest premier episode of Survivor, I thought I could give a quick preview into what to expect out of Pegboards as we wrap up 2016.

The start of the 33rd season of Survivor kicks off the start of the fall TV schedule. Here at Pegboards we will continue* to recap The Walking Dead on a weekly basis with our Dead Rankings where Jesse and I compete to guess who is next to die on the show. Sound morbid and hilarious? It is indeed.

*I haven’t confirmed this with Jesse yet but let’s just say I will guilt him into it.

Aside from The Walking Dead expect to see weekly Survivor recaps, WWE coverage, weekly NFL rankings, a Stranger Things season 1 recap, some movie reviews and much more. If you have any suggestions for show recaps please leave a comment below!

Uh oh, I hate to do this but it looks like a cyclone is incoming. For the first time in three seasons, I’m going to have to evacuate the column. Just click below and I’ll be back before you know it. Spoilers below.
