    I thought I would really enjoy this season with the first few losses with Ulong, but now it's just pathetic. Boring even...But it has to get better, right? I think the idea of not merging was a great one, but it would have worked out much better had the teams had equal losses and wins.

    Okay, Mr. William, you got me curious enough to break out the old German-English dictionary.

    schade + freude = pity + joy

    I assume from the meanings of the root words, and the context that schadenfreude means something like taking joy out of feeling pity/shame for someone. Let me know if a win a special decoding prize!
    Schadenfreude - being happy because of someone else's misfortune

    Thanks for the vocabulary lesson.
    There's always one in every bunch.

    Of course, I didn't get a preview of next weeks episode (only luck I had was with the Apprentice, and that was semi-cryptic), so can someone give me the juicy details? Thanks in advance.

    So, now Ulong is down to two. Uhm, so when they lose again next week, are they just going to leave their fate up to some random tie-breaker, or will the two have to compete against each-other for some sort of immunity? You know, providing something doesn't mix things up next week.

    The B-Team was mentioned, and I think it's getting to the point where there's an A, B, and C team for Koror. That's sort of pathetic, but I'm still finding Ulong's losing streak to be amazingly entertaining.

    I love this season, despite the massive Ulong bloodshed - it's amazing to see the depths of how bad a tribe can be. But for one forced tribal council for Koror, they are intact. We've never seen a streak like this. And then they catch a shark? wow.

    I think that the mix of people is generally pretty good, and we have the seeds of a really great finale in the works. It may not be as emotionally hard as the last three, but we'll see how it plays out.

    Jeff: Next week on Survivor, the rats move in at Koror.
    (Scenes of rats scurrying all around camp and you can hear Katie, I think, say, "Get outta here." Tom interviews: "The rats have realized we're not a threat to them.")

    And Coby's had enough.
    (Coby interviews: "Those girls don't do anything. I want to take all 3 of those girls and push them into the fire."

    While Ulong is down to two.
    (Stephenie interviews: "Bobby Jon is turning into a caveman" -- punctuated by a belch/grunt apparently from BJ.)

    Someone who saw the show....how did they get the shark out of the water? The pictures are all of it on the beach being poked and hacked (and thank you, Danger Bunny, for those!). Thanks!

    They didn't get it on film, the first we see Tom is hauling it up the beach by the tail. According to him he ran up, slashed the shark then jumped on it, worked his way to the tail and hauled it out of the water (and you're welcome).

    Well, they did think and someone was in charge at first... JOLANDA!! I think the decision to vote her off was their undoing. At least with her, they would've been directed in the right path.

    I'm not sure about this. The whole tribe was soooo resistant to being lead. Also, Stephenie was right that Jolanda was in a large part responsible for them losing the IC. Being boss and being bossy aren't the same. Tom is a leader by occupation and nature so he was able to get the tribe to WANT to follow his lead. Jolanda (from what little we saw of her) just made her tribe ask the question: Who are YOU to tell ME what to do.
