Chaotic Neutral Film Commentary

I Think I Like Sleepy Hollow

When I first watched the preview for FOX’s new hit show, Sleepy Hollow, I thought to myself, There is no way that this shit is real. This is a joke, right? Alas, Sleepy Hollow is very real. The joke, apparently, was on me. Not only was it real, but the show was getting decent Read More

“It’s a game, bitch.”

Tonight’s episode of Survivor surprised me. No, I was not shocked by a blindside. Nobody’s vote came out of nowhere. What surprised me was how straightforward everything was. It was clear from the beginning that Aras would go home if he didn’t win immunity. There was no real red herring. The producers never tried to trick us—tonight’s episode was Read More

“You’re not gonna break up with me are you?”

We’re quickly approaching the merge in Survivor: Blood vs. Water, and after such an entertaining pre-merge, I can’t wait to see what’s to come.

This week, for the first time all season, we got to see a lot of Kat. Which was maybe unnecessary, as it was pretty clear early Read More

Survivor 27: Pregame Power Rankings



This is my first season attempting to chronicle three months in the life of a Survivor fanatic. And with the premiere two days away, it’s time to begin with my first ever Read More

“I so wish your husband was here.”

The first episode of Blood vs. Water has aired, and after a few days of reflection, it’s time to talk about how Season 27’s new theme played out. Surprisingly (to me, and many other Survivor purists I have come across via social media), it was a good one. Read More

“You cut my baby, I’ll cut you.”

Well, let’s not bury the lead here.

Candice Woodcock-Cody did not place first in a Redemption Island duel. I know, I know… I cannot believe it either. Having Dr. John join her in the arena really seemed to soften my favorite stone cold Redemption Island assassin. Read More

“Easy votes are often the dumbest in this game.”

While episode five of Blood vs Water didn’t pack the same punch as its predecessors, it was still a solid forty-five minutes of television, and I still feel really optimistic about the way this season is going. I have never lied about my bias toward the first ten seasons of Survivor (to me, they are far and away the best), but Blood vs Water could have Read More

“I fancy myself a lady’s man, Jeff.”

So, this week’s blog will be a tiny bit different. Rather than do my normal recap, followed by the winners and losers post-swap, this will just be a recap blog. I will then publish my updated power rankings. Now seems like as good a time as any to take another stab at those. So look out for that later today (or tomorrow). But in the meantime… Read More

Post-Swap Power Rankings

After six episodes of Survivor: Blood vs. Water, it may be time to finally update my Power Rankings, which I did pre-game. If you want to check out the original Rankings, you can find them here. If you don’t want to go through the trouble, Read More

“That was a strong attack on the Culpepper name.”

When I heard what the concept of Survivor 27 was, I am not going to lie—I was very wary. I thought bringing family members with their loved ones was another show (Amazing Race, anyone?). I thought we had already seen Redemption Island Read More

“I’d like to talk about anything other than Survivor.”

While episode two of Survivor 27 didn’t have the same punch as the first episode, it was still a pretty good one. We had a Colton meltdown (he came here to play Survivor, not Red Rover, in case anyone was wondering), serious strategy Read More
