I haven't been watching it, but now I'm thinking maybe I should!

The burned camp on Survivor -- they're saying on some of the boards that showing that was a slip-up, that it's from a later episode. And what happened was that Jane set the place on fire after she was voted off. I don't believe a word of it, but it sure makes a good story.

Ha, yes, it does.

Dexter -- why did Astor's friend Olivia not show the bruises to her mother? Why keep the beatings a secret?

Yes, that made no sense. By keeping quiet, she was just protecting Barry.

Every time I turn on L&O: UK, they're showing the same episode. It's a good episode, but I really would like to see another one.

Yes, that's BBCAmerica for you. Plus the longest commercial interruptions on TV.

TAR -- I had a feeling last night would be a "free" leg (I'd lost count). Too bad, because we would have been rid of Nick and Vicki otherwise. Vicki is no prize, but Nick is one mean-spirited s.o.b. I'm thinking of the way he laughed when one of the shopping hostesses got sick from the buffet food and had to throw up. That would slow her team down, he thought. And when the same thing happened to Vicki, he was disgusted. The guy seems totally lacking in compassion for anyone...other than himself, of course.

Of all the annoying moments over the years, this one annoyed me the most by far. (By comparison, Flo winning gets just a shrug of "Stuff happens.") Flat-out quitters shouldn't get rewarded, and a 6-hour penalty is absurdly small -- waiting for the next leg's flight will wipe it out. Linda Holmes, formerly Miss Alli, has a good column about it on her NPR blog .

NaOnka didn't learn a thing during her time on Survivor, did she? She left as the same selfish, excuse-making troublemaker that she was when she arrived. Blind as a bat. Purple Kelly...nothing memorable about her except her name. They'd probably forgotten her by the next morning. Interesting that they'd both pick the same time to quit.

Is anyone else watchign Chase? Not compelling drama, but it's always interesting to watch.

I've watched a few episodes, and they were interesting, in a distanced sort of way. I like the cast. On the other hand, the two new women characters in Human Target aren't adding much to the show and their reasons for being there are trivial.

Those two Survivor quitters are still on the jury and will participate in choosing the winner. THAT. IS. NOT. RIGHT. They should both have been sent home.

Edited to add I just read the blog Jon linked to, and oh, is the lady ever right! It's worth reading, folks.

Did anyone watch TAR or were you all watching football? That six-hour delay was enough! Nic and Vic missed the first flight, and that just about guaranteed they wouldn't be in the final three. Happy ending.

The doctors have the best dentistry in the show.

They do, don't they? Glad to see the end of Nic and Vic, and only one man left in the race.

And Benry is gone from Survivor, ho hum. Weird thing, I kind of like Fabio now. For someone this far into the game, he is so incredibly innocent. Last night he looked so hurt when someone actually voted for him in tribal council, ha!
