Good morning, lovely Bloggers!
OK - Brief FNL recap for Kenneth Fleck: The kid who plays Bo, Tim Riggins' new neighbour, is just about the cutest thing ever. He didn't get enough airtime last night; he's adorable! Tim's kinda taken the kid under his wing, and in the meantime is getting action from Bo's mom. It's hard sometimes to remember that Riggins is in high school. He seems so much older than all the other football players; so much more "wise in the ways of the world". Now that he's gettin' it on with a 30-something single mom, he seems even more grown up.
Street started out the episode with a major slap in the face when he was not selected to play on the Quad Rugby team in Beijing. But he returned home and seemed to reconnect with his old friends, including Riggins. He and Lyla may be in trouble again, though, after he told her he's not sure he wants to be engaged.
Meanwhile, Julie's flipping out at the possibility of having to move to Austin, Texas, as the Coach has been offered a new job out there. But Julie really does have the coolest parents in the world, and I won't be surprised if they decide to stay in Dillon so that she can stay with Matt. Mrs. T has also taken Tyra under her wing, helping her academically, but Tyra's mom wasn't on the same page, basically telling her daughter she's not smart enough to go on to college. Thankfully, Tyra thinks otherwise, and once again, I felt a little respect for the girl.
Next week's episode looks like it's gonna be another doozie!! Can't wait!
Now, on to Survivor, where we had a Tribal re-configuration right off the bat. Everybody dropped their buffs, and two new tribes were formed, with one coming out all-alpha-male, and the other apparently weak with all the girls & Yau Man (who might as well be considered a girl, strength-wise), along with Boo & Earl. Lisi was the odd gal out, and she was shipped off to Exile Island after basically throwing a tantrum and begging Jeff to send her home.
Edgardo selected the wrong colour of buff, so the boys were all sent to Loser Beach, while the seemingly "weak" tribe got a huge advantage in earning the right to live over at Luxury Camp. The boys, however, made the best of it, and they were out catching fish and bonding before you knew it. Unfortunately for Anthony, considered "effeminate" and "nerdy" by some of the others (ie: Rocky), he was left to build fire and boil water, while the "big tough men" went out to do the hard work. Argh, argh, argh! (That was supposed to sound like Tim the Tool Man's macho grunt...) I really felt bad for Anthony. He's never been given a fair shake with Rocky beating him down every chance he gets, and I've never been a fan of bullies. So yeah, my initial impression of Rocky being my favourite has completely evaporated.
At the Immunity Challenge - surprise, surprise! - the big, tough boys lost. It must be something to do with living on Loser Beach - like a vibe that you can't shake or something. It gets in your head, and you're doomed to be a loser forever. In any case, the boys debated tossing either Anthony or Rocky, but after the way Rocky acted at TC, I would have voted off Rocky. He acted like a little baby, and his treatment of Anthony was appalling, calling him names and demanding he stand up for himself, which was odd, because every time Anthony even so much as opened his mouth, Rocky was shouting over top of him. In the end, they got rid of Anthony anyway, but I guarantee you that Rocky won't be far behind him. His abrasive, loud, obnoxious attitude is already starting to grate on the other guys, and over-the-top characters like that never last long!
Right now, my new favourite is Edgardo. He seems to be the most level-headed and not so dramatic. Should be interesting to see how this one all boils down!
Well, that's all for now folks...It appears as though I might be making another trip to Guelph this weekend with Bill & Sue to visit Lindsay, so I'll have a full report when I return!
