    1. @HeyJude. Wholeheartedly agree. Love Survivor. I find the only other Reality Show worth watching is The Amazing Race. The Americans leave the Aussies for dead when it comes to producing Reality Shows in my opinion. There’s no comparison and I’m sure neither Survivor or TAR are scripted.

      1. To be fair, The Amazing Race Australia was every bit as good as the US (winning an International Emmy) and Australian Survivor albeit dragging out episodes too long, has had some ripping moments. Final challenge of first season knocked it out of the park for drama / visuals / emotion.

        1. I agree, David. It is the format and design of the show rather than the country that makes it. Survivor and TAR are great because they have a goal (to win the game) and a succession of challenges to get there. They don’t focus on fake relationships or creating animosity (deliberately) to get there.

      1. Wow. 9Go! might save Nine tonight and tomorrow + Attenborough on main channel tomorrow. Though Seven should win tonight easily as normal and who knows how Spartan encore will rate tomorrow, let alone Seven’s multis.

        Goes to show how Thursdays aren’t a ‘give up’ night.

      1. Yes, the only reason I knew Unforgotten was back on, was reading about it here on TVT.
        An excellent drama – very underrated.
        Also great to see The Bridge return for its final season. Love this show – Saga is magnificent.
