Survivor Philippines recap Oct 10, 2012

by Mr Mojo

The show opens up and Matsing is in bad spirits, their fire is out from the rain and they can’t get a new one started. Pretty much a metaphor for their entire game. Malcolm says they just need one win to turn it around. They’ve been saying that since day one and it hasn’t been working out for them. As we go to the opening I’m just hoping that some of the focus is on other tribes tonight since I feel we barely know them yet.

10 Best Television Shows of All Time - #5 Deadwood

by Mr Mojo

HBO’s Deadwood is the 5th best TV show of all time in my opinion. When it debuted I wasn’t sure what to make of it. Deadwood came on after the Sopranos and was so different that it was hard to know what to think. The language was shocking and I’m someone who uses the F word liberally. Some of the characters really annoyed me like Swearengen. I never would have suspected that a few episodes in I would think that Al Swearengen was on the best characters on television!

10 Best Television Shows of All Time - #6 Lost

by Mr Mojo

What hasn’t been written about Lost already? One of the iconic shows of the last several years. People either loved or hated the ending, with more probably leaning towards hating it. But even if you hated the ending, you had to love the years that came before it. I go back and forth on the ending personally. Like everyone else I wanted more questions answered and had guessed years ago that they were in some kind of purgatory. I did like the idea of Hurley being in control of the island with Ben Linus as his assistant.

10 Best Television Shows of All Time – #7 Mad Men

by Mr Mojo

I came late to the Mad Men party. I never watched a single episode until about four months ago. I was looking for a new show to watch and several friends highly recommended Mad Men. Of course I had heard of it, I knew it was really popular and critically acclaimed. But a show set in the early 1960′s about an ad agency really didn’t appeal to me and that’s all I knew about it. I watched the first episode and thought it was pretty good. By the third episode I was hooked. I made my way through all five seasons in a little over a month!

10 Best Television Shows of All Time – #8 Survivor

by Mr Mojo

I know I will get flak for this one but the #8 best TV show of all time is the one that started the whole reality craze…Survivor! I remember watching the first episode in 2000, I was addicted from the get go! Richard Hatch, Rudy Boesch, Susan Hawk, Gervase, Colleen, Jenna Lewis…the all became instant stars at the time. Survivor was something totally new and exciting. It captured the attention of the country and delivered huge ratings. Fast forward twelve years and Survivor is on season 25 and still delivering Top 20 ratings each season.

Survivor Philippines recap

by Mr Mojo

Time for this week’s Survivor recap. Russell survived last week but he may not survive this week if his tribe loses immunity again. First though we go to Tandang where RC and Abi accidentally find the hidden immunity clue in the rice pot. RC actually finds it but Abi is right there so she has no choice but to share it. Abi is happy since they are in an alliance but still wonders whether RC would have shared if she hadn’t been there. It seems Abi has a lot of doubts, she sees RC and Mike talking about his latest injury and worries that they are too close. She confronts RC on this but RC says the plan is still in effect and don’t worry. Now RC is wondering if maybe Abi isn’t a good choice as her #2 and maybe Mike can move up a spot. More after the jump…

10 Best Television Shows of All Time – #9 Friends

by Mr Mojo

Perhaps the greatest sitcom of all-time. Friends was on NBC for 10 seasons. From the catchy title song, “I’ll be there for you”, to the relationship twists between Ross and Rachel Friends always held our attention. In my opinion it is the 9th best TV show of all time.

10 Best Television Shows of All Time – #10 Game of Thrones

by Mr Mojo

The number 10 best TV show of all time is HBO’s Game of Thrones! Whether you are a fan of the books or not you can appreciate the epic story of A Song of Ice and Fire. Personally, I am a huge fan of the books and love seeing it come alive on television. Not many shows could handle the incredibly large cast of characters or complicated plot lines like Game of Thrones does. I know some non-book readers complain that it’s hard to follow such a large cast. I think the complex story makes it even better.

10 Best Television Shows of All Time – Honorable Mentions

by Mr Mojo

It’s time to count down the top 10 best TV shows of all time, according to me. Mr. Blonde is taking a hiatus from the site but I will count down the 10 best with an explanation of each. Remember this is my opinion so some shows such as MASH or I Love Lucy which are acknowledged as great shows won’t make the list because I do not watch them. A few really good shows that could have made the list but fell short are The Wonder Years, Simpsons, Family Guy, Rome and the Deadliest Catch. A few years ago I think Simpsons and The Wonder Years would have made it. Family Guy falls short mainly because while I think it’s a great show I rarely watch the new episodes. I watch it in syndication and think it’s hysterical but if it’s not appointment TV then it does not deserve to make the list. Rome is a show that I thought was amazing yet it only lasted two seasons and was on several years ago to make the Top 10. As for Deadliest Catch, I absolutely love it but at the end of the day people would kill me if I classified it as one of the greatest shows. It could make the Top 10 Guilty Pleasures list though! The Honorable Mentions after the jump….

10 Best Television Shows of All Time

by Mr Mojo

Tomorrow, Mr. Blonde and I will start counting down our list of the 10 Best TV Shows of All Time. We each have a list and I’m sure they will be very, very different. These lists are our opinion so while a show like MASH has generally been regarded as one of the top shows ever it won’t be on my list because I’ve never been a fan. Hopefully you will enjoy these lists and our comments on each show!
