    A sad sign of both the fall of Survivor and Boards.ie that nobody even bothered making a thread but ah well, here it is: Survivor 43 started last night, filmed as a shortened 26 day season like the 2 Covid ones which is apparently Jeff Probsts preference, definitely not mine. Keeping the tough conditions/no rations theme which I do like though and also the stupid new gimmicks like the hourglass crap and the last chance roll of the dice stuff have been cut.

    Anybody still watching?

    I enjoyed the season premiere. One of the better opening episodes.

    • no mooring
    • only the one tribal so I feel like I've a decent grasp of the entire cast
    • mainly fans as opposed to recruits
    • diverse cast which keeps things interesting

    I'll continue watching until season 50 and I'll reassess then. Wouldn't be surprised if Probst walks away then.

    This season is very good, I'm enjoying it a lot.

    Love Noelle - she's inspirational. Would love to see her go a long way.

    The newer short format is crap! You barely care who they are or who wins. There is no time for alliances to really build before swaps/merge etc. And I'm kinda sick of Probst (ducks for cover)

    I'm enjoying this season, well as much as I probably can after 42 seasons.

    An episode of two halves. The first half was amazing - what a challenge. The second half? Boo.

    I thought the entire episode good. The one issue I'm having with recent episodes is that the opening scenes seem to be at odds with the previous episodes edit. Curious to see if the same happens next week.

    Ah no, the whole episode was great. I'm just not happy about who went home. 🙂

    I havent even gotten to Episode 02 yet, cant face it, my lifelong love of Survivor is at an all time low. does this seem like its shaping up to be a decent season?



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,256 ✭✭✭ S.M.B.


    I think it's a decent season but it sounds like a decent season wouldn't be enough to capture your attention to the same extent as it did in the past.

    It's not that different to the post covid seasons with the only exception being less production interference with unnecessary twists.

    Yeah, it's a good season this time (and I didn't really enjoy the last 2).
