Is Survivor the only great reality TV show? | A.V. Club
Jared Sperli stashed this in tv
i have seen two seasons: the first season and this spring's. it is entertaining just like sports.
The seasons in 2013 and 2014 have been among the show's best.
I have seen many of the seasons and what's interesting is the dynamics between the people. As a result you never see the same type of win twice. Every winner really has to navigate the other people in the group to win.
Survivor also shows how we want to divorce ourselves from our own behavior:
“Yes, it is a game, but that doesn’t change the impact of what someone does to another person with whom they have a connection,” Dehnart said. “Nearly every jury has also shown that its members would rather be lied to than be faced with brutal honesty. They want to feel good about their decision, so they buy the bullshit.”
