Anybody watch Survivor 3 tonight? Anyone watch Survivor 1 or 2?

I thought the first was stupid and never watched an episode. I thought the concept was gay as a 3 dollar coin.

Then, after the Superbowl last year, it was on and I thought I'd just watch a few minutes of it to see what the hoopla was. I watched the whole damn thing. And I thought it was interesting from a social psychology stand point.

The hot babe on Survivor 3 is that woman who is a cop in Florida. She could shackle and beat a confession out of me.

My instincts tell me I may have grossed out audra and her band of merry moderators.

But you made me, at least for a brief moment, really want to watch Survivor 3. Ah yes...happy sub fun. Okay, it's passed. No "reality" shows for me, thanks.

Sigh. I'm hoping you're meaning "gay" as in "happiness". Don't mean to be an overly PC jerk here, but I'm a bit sensitive to "gay" being used as a derogatory term. If I wanted to see gay bashing I'd go to church. Don't particularly want to see it on babble.

Yeah, JCL, if you're going to toss around anti-gay epithets, at least get them right. The correct expression, I believe, is "Queer as a three dollar bill". Hmmph!

I saw the premiere episode of Survivor II and nearly died of boredom. Many of the scenes were so OBVOUSLY staged. "Reality-tv" my ass.

When you get the "contestants" to do something a second time for the camera, or use stand-ins, it's no longer "reality-tv" IMHO.

The PC version of "gay as a three-dollar bill" is "lame as an AOL user".

I quite like "gay as a kite," which an ex of mine may have coined. It's rather affectionate than derogatory.
