Yes, I am a couple days behind thanks to Tivo, but \/\/()\/\/

I give credit to Bunim/Murray for making reality TV an accessible reality, but Mark Burnett is unquestionably the master. Many of you abandoned “Survivor” after season one, and while even I have spent a few seasons only half watching while I blog and surf, you missed out on a big whopper of a show. The girl power bonanza of season sixteen — Fans vs. Favorites — delivered an all female final 4, 3 non-tribal-council health-based removals (2 excruciating physical, 1 whack-a-mole mental), 4 amazing car-crash blindsides, and a major volcanic jaw-dropping hand-off of an immunity necklace at tribal council. Then to top it all off, Burnett’s editors had me fooled into falling in love with the girl who eventually placed second. Congratulations to Parvati, but I still think Amanda and Cirie were more deserving.

I can’t wait for next season. It is improbable to be as exciting as this one, but seeing Gabon in HD alongside the “Survivor” microcosm of Dawinian competition should be stunning.
