The ghost island concept also was a bit disappointing. Some of the idols and rewards on it were fine, but I didn't like that the game was pure chance, and whether you even play the game was pre-decided by producers. The ending was fitting, two worthy winners so was happy for either to take it.

I found Ghost Island as a season particularly underwhelming. It had its moments, of course, like every season, but they dropped the ball. A lot. Rather than sending someone to GI every episode and leaving it to random chance as to whether or not an advantage, they should have had set days where someone would go and be guaranteed something there. It was such a waste of time. Episodes felt like quick cuts as times. We're at camp, then reward challenge, then GI, then camp, then immunity challenge etc. If we have to go to GI because it's the main focal point of the season then combine the reward and immunity challenges to save some time and free up about a quarter of the episode to focus on the players more.

The players were very polarising, you had a few really strong characters and then the rest were total duds. Whether or not this is because so many players were shafted in terms of the edit as they put so much focus on what turned out to be the final three is up for debate. For me based on what we saw, it was one of the weakest casts ever. Definitely bottom 10.

Can't wait for the upcoming Australian season... Especially with you know who returning. Don't think he'll last long though.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Just finished season 2 of Glow :wub: It's so good.

Debbie's reaction to Ruth almost getting date-raped :dread:

Sam's reaction :datass: He's a much more likeable character at the end of this season.

Poor Bash :( Kinda crazy that that's how people used to react to aids :dread:

Also had no idea GLOW was an actual wrestling federation :slol:

Netflix won a U.S. Bankruptcy Court’s approval to terminate its output deal with The Weinstein Company, a settlement that means the streaming service won’t be obligated to stream a third season of MTV’s Scream.
