I know it’s practically finished in the States. But it started here last night. I’ve watched every season from about the third season. It’s the play of human psychology that is endlessly fascinating. I’m always amazed, that after so many seasons, that some of the players simply don’t grasp the basics.

In Week 1 while Boston Rob builds numbers, Christina who finds the idol, which is good, manages to turn this advantage into a liability. Unbelievable. Secret Agent Phillip, is obviously as loose-a-cannon as has ever been on the show.

Russell is as deluded as ever. The team suss his repeated strategy from the get-go, and already plots are afoot to expel him. I’ll watch with interest to see how he fares third time lucky. It’s shaping up to be one of the best seasons.
