Got a question about Survivor: Guatemala? Ask us and you may see the answer in TV Guide magazine.
Where to start? OK, I know. Princess Leia, editor-in-chief of the Daily Planet, who knew? Favorite-line honors go to the actor formerly known as William the Bloody: "
You know, I was starting to think this show was on permanent life support with little hope of recovery but folks, after weeks of humdrum, we've got ourselves a live one! Carolyn gets to sit in the Big Boardroom Chair to kick off the task, and I must say, she looks positively radiant when she's in charge. Unfortunately, Bill Rancic's still hanging around not being George, and Carolyn's impact on the proceedings is pretty much a nonissue. No matter, things are gonna get plenty ugly on their own. After a healthy shuffling of the team rosters, Capital Edge and Excel head off to their respective sporting-goods stores for an afternoon sales event. Notice, I said sales event. Long story short, Alla and her putt-putters on Capital Edge not only mop the floor with Josh and the Excel batting cage, they do it without knowing anything about sports. Wound? Let me introduce you to my good friend Salt. But wait, there's more! Trump comes back to town just in time for a little good old-fashioned reaming, and I think it goes without saying that he's not gonna stand for any whining from a group who actually caused a 34 percent drop in sales during the task. I mean, you pretty much have to try to screw up that badly, don't you? That, or have Omarosa on your team. Clearly, the Donald is displeased. And you know what that means four, count 'em, four finger-pointing sad sacks get the pink slip in one fell swoop. But amidst all that jaw-dropping, guffaw-inducing jolly good fun, the episode's finest moment comes down to the post-boardroom Walk of Shame in which Josh, Jennifer, Mark and James are forced to share a single cab into sequestered oblivion. Best. Uncomfortable. Silence. Ever. Chana Shwadlenak
It is truly a case of "Ask and you shall receive" on this show. I had been complaining that all we ever saw Dr. Dimples doing lately was hanging around Nina, and I wished that he'd get back to doing some medical stuff. Well lo and behold this week, he's doling out Botox like it's candy on Halloween and standing up to the always pushy Edna. Making her realize that she doesn't know everything and may not always be right was pretty impressive for the pretty boy. Also impressive, Bright's last minute decision not to dump Hannah. I know that he was hoping to be hookin' up with her, especially after his comment about her when she was stuck in the sleeping bag, "You look like a mermaid. I freakin' love mermaids." Yeah, there was some sexual connotation there, I could just feel it. But even though she's "not going to have premarital sex until she's married" a nice redundant statement by Everwood's most astute resident he saw the potential in the bookish gal. Don't know how long it will last, but I love Bright and I didn't want him to be such a jerk. He did deal quite well with the revelation that Reid wasn't gay, he just didn't understand why he worked out so much. Meanwhile Nina got in the zinger of the night when she and Andy got a chance to banter alone about her bet with Delia. "I've already introduced her to porn and vibrators. Gambling is the least of your worries." Recalling past episodes and having Andy and Nina talk like they used to? That's good times. AC
