How was Survivor Cagayan? *NO SPOILERS*

*No spoilers please*

This is the first season in a long time that I didn't watch live. In fact, I haven't even started it yet. Miraculously, I managed to avoid all spoilers, so I could still fully enjoy the season after the fact. I'm just wondering if it's worth it, since I have so many other shows to catch up on. How did this season compare to others in terms of fun players to watch, big surprise moments, and overall entertainment value?

Well, that's a spoiler (once you know the results of the final challenge).

I enjoyed this season much more than those in recent memory. IMHO, definitely worth watching.

Thanks, guys! Sounds like it was a great season. I'll definitely watch it soon. It does make me sad, however, that I won't be able to discuss all the interesting twists an turns with you guys. To me, that's the biggest negative about watching it after the fact. I'll also miss Dalton's recaps. I'd be afraid to try to find the appropriate one after each episode for fear of accidentally seeing spoilers.

Usually someone posts a link to Dalton's recap in the weekly thread for each episode here. So if you find the appropriate episode here, you should be able to get to Dalton's recap spoiler free?

That's an excellent idea. Thanks for the tip!

I'm really glad I decided to watch this season. I'm about 2/3 of the way through it, and I'm really enjoying it. Unfortunately, I screwed up and accidentally had my season pass set to only record 10 episodes. I now have no choice but to purchase the last 4 episodes at $2.99 a pop.

That does suck. But since the last episode is two hours, you're getting five hours (less commercials) of entertainment for $12. That's cheaper than going to a movie. And based on the fact that you're already invested in the season, it's also more meaningful to you than some random movie.

Can you also get the reunion episode? Is that an additional $2.99 or is it included in the finale episode?

Yes. It's available, and it's also $2.99.

That confuses me. If you said to keep only 10, Tivo would have dropped off the first 4, and you should have the last 10. Unless I'm missing something.

Not if he had them set to KUID and a max of 10. Then it would record the first ten and stop.

Aren't they all on the Survivor website to watch free? I know it isn't on TV but at least it'd be free. You might want to have a friend or family member pull up the episode for you, just so you don't happen to run into other spoilers on the site.

Ah, did not know that. I don't use KUID.

Bingo! All my season passes are KUID. I've just always been more comfortable that way, even though I've read plenty of compelling arguments against it. I guess it's just a bad habit that I never got over from my ReplayTV days.

I finished up the season last night via Vudu. It was a lot of fun! It's amazing how entertaining this show can still be after 28 seasons.

Some quick thoughts on the outcome:

Spoiler:
I'm glad Tony won. He played the game the hardest, and was by far the most deserving of the million bucks. I felt really bad for Woo, though. He seems like such a likable guy, and it was clear he was very upset about the outcome during the reunion show. Unfortunately for him, he simply wasn't capable of seeing the big picture. He had the money in his hands, and he threw it away.
