Did anyone else watch the first series of “Survivor” ritually and then never watch another episode of the show? The only reason that I watched it the first time is because it was aired over the summer of 2000 and was working a 9-5 job at GE. The next time it was on, my life was in flux on the weekday nights and could never really watch it, and I am one of those people that don’t really feel like pickng a show up in mid-season. I haven’t seen a full episode or cared about the season since. I liked the first one, I wanted to watch the second one, but I missed it because of a lacrosse practice and that was it . . . never cared about it again.
For all those who are still fans, here’s a clever take-off from the show. It’s just a huge dork-pop culture agglomeration. To create, mix one part CBS, one part Maxis, and a pinch of biting satirical wit. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer 20-25 minutes (30-35 minutes for high-altitudes), remove from heat, and let mixture cool for five minutes. fluff lightly with a fork, and serve.
