Tiger King Episode 6 Recap: The Noble Thing To Do

As Russell Crowe‘s Gladiator once said, “Are you not entertained?” That’s not even an option when it comes to Tiger King (of course you’re entertained, that’s why you’re reading a recap about the show!). It’s the most buzzed-about series to hit Netflix in quite a while. It’s our country’s favorite guilty-pleasure and diversion during these crazy times.

As we roll into Episode 6, the penultimate episode leading into the Episode 7 Series Finale, the murder-for-hire plot finally thickens. Up until now, we’ve been dropped into a world full of tigers, ex-cons, low-lives, zoos and eccentric animal trainers, where we’ve been given twist after unbelievable twist (Joe Exotic had not one but two husbands, who turn out to not even be gay???). Finally, we get to the real “true crime” chapter in the Joe Exotic story. We figure out just why he’s been giving phone interviews from inside Oklahoma’s Grady County Jail.

Just when you think things couldn’t get any weirder, Tiger King kicks into another gear. If you’ve already seen Tiger King Episode 6, you won’t mind reading on, But, if you haven’t and don’t want to be spoiled, you may want to turn back.

Survivor: Winners At War Episode 6 Recap: Old Schooled

Well I don’t know about you, but this past week has been one of the most stressful and shocking of my life…I’m sure many of you feel the same. I’m certain that recent events have made us all stop and take stock as to what we DO have in our lives, and one thing that I know I am awfully proud and grateful for – following of course my family, my son, my friends, etc. – is that I get to write. Being a film critic and getting to cover Survivor, my all-time favorite show that I was obsessed with years before writing about it professionally, is truly something that I took for granted. I know that now. What a difference a week makes.

And what a week to write about Survivor. Tonight saw not one, but two legends of the game fall from grace. It’s one deadly knock-out blow after another this season, and this week was no different other than it featured TWO knock-out punches. And if anything is clear as we reach the mid-point of “Winners at War,” it’s this: New School is beating the living hell out of Old School, the latter of which who is down and stumbling around the ring looking for answers that don’t seem to be there.

As I do at the beginning of every recap, please heed the following: Remember that this recap assumes that you have already seen this week’s episode of Survivor: Winners at War. If you have not and don’t want to be spoiled, please come back later! It’s important to add that while we WILL hit on all of the important developments of the episode, this is not a linear “blow-by-blow” recap. It is more of a discussion and reaction of what we just witnessed together.

Survivor: Island of the Idols Episode 6 Recap: An Aaron Judgment

Well that was an intense one! This week’s episode of Survivor: Island of the Idols was perhaps the best episode of the season thus far, with strategic game-play right from the get-go, a daring attempt for an advantage that took place during an Immunity Challenge, and a nail-biter of a Tribal Council that was unpredictable and exciting. As Survivor is also known as the world’s greatest social experiment, it also featured a very important scene of understanding that acted as a learning moment not only for the one involved, but for all of us watching at home as well.

Survivor: Edge of Extinction Episode 5 and 6 Recap: Forged In Fire

This season just got great, people! For those that have stuck through the first handful of episodes, we were rewarded tonight with two AMAZING hours of Survivor. Two hours that were filled with strategy, drama, excitement, twists and major blindsides. It’s made the trek thus far worth it, and then some. I, for one, was bubbling with that Survivor-adrenaline tonight, and forget what the naysayers might be telling you: The Edge of Extinction was darned-exciting tonight too! Yes, Survivor was firing on all cylinders tonight. And here’s hoping it has jolted its loyal fan-base into being excited again. I’m feeling reinvigorated!

As I do at the beginning of every recap, please heed the following. Remember that this recap assumes that you have already seen this week’s Episode 5 and 6 of Survivor: Edge of Extinction.

Exclusive Interview: Survivor: David vs. Goliath’s Lyrsa Torres:

Survivor is tough enough as it is, without people referring to you as “weak.” It’s an assumption based on appearance, withouth knowing anything at all about Lyrsa Torres. As we saw on this week’s episode, Lyrsa is anything but weak, but in the game of Survivor, it’s often the strong ones that are sent home first.

Survivor: David vs. Goliath Episode 6 Recap: ‘Hope Is Not A Strategy’

There’s lots to discuss in an episode of Survivor that saw the erosion of several existing alliances and the formation of a few new ones. Yes, the lines between David and Goliath are starting to blur, and that’s good timing for the audience, because that means that anything can happen, just as we find ourselves on the brink of the merge.

Exclusive – Survivor: Ghost Island’s James Lim:

If reversing curses were so easy, I’m sure there would be less curses in the first place, right? This season on Survivor: Ghost Island, the motto has not necessarily been “Outplay, Outwit, Outlast” and his instead been replaced with the catchy but over-used “reverse the curse.” But just as this current crop of players struggles to get out of the shadows cast by mistakes of Survivors’ past, some “curses” are just unavoidable. For example, every time the game has introduced a tribe swap or tribe shake-up – or every time Probst has uttered the famous phrase “drop your buffs” – someone has gotten their torch snuffed. Every. Single. Time.

This time around, that unfortunate “drop your buff” victim was James Lim, the 24-year-old Business Analyst from Los Angeles, who found himself on the minority alliance on the Malolo Tribe, following the most recent tribe shake-up. And the Malolo Tribe is not a place you want to find yourself in general, having now appeared at five of the season’s six Tribal Councils.

If you missed any of the action, you can catch up with our Episode 6 Recap, as well as checking out the Podcast below.

Survivor: Ghost Island Episode 6 Recap: Creating New Curses

As Michael perfectly summarized this week on Survivor: Ghost Island, this season was supposed to be about “Reversing curses, not creating new ones.” Well, “Hold my beer,” says the Malolo Tribe. Now six Tribal Councils deep into Season 36, the Malolo Tribe – whose members have been shuffled up over the weeks – has now gone to five of them. That’s not going to bode well for those that have to continue to endure voting someone out, because as good as you might think you are strategically or physically, you’re not going to last too long if you keep setting dates with Jeff Probst every three days.

But before we dive in, as I do at the beginning of every Recap, please heed the following: Remember that this recap assumes that you have already seen this week’s Episode 6 of Survivor: Ghost Island, so if you have not and don’t want to be spoiled, please come back later!
