It’s The FRITZ, my weekly rapid-fire reality recap blog. For fellow lovers of Survivor and The Amazing Race, rejoice. For haters of all things non-scripted…step slowly from your screen. Uh, but please come back again soon. Like, seriously, don’t leave me forever. Survivor: One World Have I mentioned lately how much I love Tarzan? Because I do. I do, so very, very much. Please tell me what’s not to love about a bearded, mustached, possibly Alzheimer’s-inflicted old guy with definitely […]

It’s The FRITZ, my weekly rapid-fire reality recap blog. For fellow lovers of Survivor and The Amazing Race, rejoice with me. For haters of all things non-scripted…step away from your screen. Uh, but please come back again soon. Like, seriously, don’t leave me forever. Survivor: One World Nothing could have prepared us for this. We’d already had one medivac this season. Remember Snow White, the first episode? We barely knew her. Curses. In the premiere he referred to the season […]

It’s The FRITZ, my weekly rapid-fire reality recap blog. For fellow lovers of Survivor and The Amazing Race, rejoice with me. For haters of all things non-scripted…step away from your screen. Uh, but please come back again soon. Like, seriously. Survivor: One World Man, those guys are IDIOTS. Why on earth would they give up immunity and shift all that momentum back toward the women? They’re gonna get slaughtered now! They’re totally gonna lose challenges and go to tribal council […]

It’s The FRITZ, my weekly rapid-fire reality recap blog. For lovers of Survivor and The Amazing Race, welcome home. For haters of all things non-scripted…step away from your screen. Uh, but please come back. Survivor: One World After a mediocre premiere that culminated with a super-lame immunity challenge, a medivaced contestant, and a fake tribal council, this season has put on the rocket jets and already blasted into a more fascinating season than either of the last two combined. Sorry, […]

It’s The FRITZ, my weekly rapid-fire reality recap blog. For lovers of Survivor and The Amazing Race, welcome home. For haters of all things non-scripted…step away from your screen. Uh, but please come back. Survivor: One World Would the women survive the monstrous rains? Would all seven remaining ladies die? Or if they somehow survived the night, would they all just quit the next day? Who would Colton fraternize with then? These were the questions facing us in the wake […]

The FRITZ – 2/24/12

The Amazing Race It was the 20th season premiere of everyone’s favorite race around the world, and yet despite this monumental number, I never once wondered how would Phil open the show. Because for 19 seasons he’s basically opened the show the exact same way, inconceivably standing atop the tallest skyscraper as he introduces the teams and tells us — But wait, wait, WAIT. It’s Phil! Zipping by on a…on a bicycle! And he’s wearing a hideous Amazing Race uniform! […]

The FRITZ – 2/17/12

It’s been a dark, dark winter. Community got dumped off the air and Whitney Houston died. But never fear. The FRITZ is back. Back to warm the cockles of your heart by highlighting both the absurd and the tear-jerking in reality TV. With “phase two” of The FRITZ, I’m shifting my focus strictly to reality television, which means every Friday, all season long, I’ll be recapping Survivor and The Amazing Race. As if you needed another reason to adore Friday. […]

The Fritz! – 12/16/11

It’s a sad day for my blog. A sad day because, alas, it’s my final TV recap blog of the year. Several months ago I started a weekly TV blogging tradition that will forever go down in the annals of blogging history as…something. But fresh TV only goes for so long before it hits the pause button. It’s a tragedy akin to eggnog only being sold the last two months of the year. The Amazing Race held its season finale […]
