"Survivor" Season Premiere: Two Quick Goodbyes

"Survivor: Gabon" appears to be yet another case of terribly unbalanced tribes, which suggests that the choosing-sides approach to team selection is not very effective for creating drama. And even the bad tribe, Fang, which voted off two members, was not only bad at challenges but bad at internal logic. Gillian, below, was the clear candidate for immediate elimination -- couldn't even get up a hill -- but the tribe kept her around for another week because of personality conflicts with Michelle, above. Of course, as I said, Fang looks to be one of those tribes that will be systematically eliminated unless the show forces a tribe-member swap between the two. Its paranoia about Dan's visit to Exile Island was ridiculously premature.

Pretty routine premiere. Familiar competitions and bickering. The new HD version made the most of beautiful landscape, but the already visible bites and bumps on people's skin indicate that there are going to be a lot of things we'd just as soon not see in HD.
