A cyberspace journal about my experiences as an NYU film school grad student, reviews of current and classic films, film and TV news, and the rants and raves of an admitted (and unapologetic) film snob.

He's the Yau-Man!

This was easily one of the best seasons of Survivor ever.

Up until Yau-Man--who played the game better than any contestant of the season and perhaps the entire game--was voted off, I was biting my nails down to bloody stumps. However, it's interesting (and not a little bit disappointing) that one of the most tense, exciting, engrossing seasons should then end with the single most preordained, foreseeable and frankly boring votes for the winner. It was not a surprise whatsoever that Earl got the historic, positive shutout vote. What was the alternative-the slacker or the backstabber?

Yau-Man, almost single-handedly, made for one of the best seasons of Survivor's entire run.

Why? What? Because it was brilliant the stratagy that was played out by him - and I have to say by Earl as well. I was on the edge of my seat each episode as Earl and Yau (and the coat-tail riding Cassandra - ick)twisted and turned with the game. Yau, a man of his distingushed age, played a smart and savvy game. I mean, c'mon making a false immunity idol? Funny and smart!! It was one of the very best seasons in a very long time. Too bad he didn't get paid in the end for all of his brillant moves. Too bad "Dreamz" speaks out of both sides of his mouth.....hey, doesn't the bible talk about that?
