I feel like the editing has gotten progressively worse since the first Survivor. In order to make the end a "surprise," they leave out so much information, and twist the scenes they show so badly, that I feel like I hardly get to see what was going on. I know they want to have some suspense, but I want to see what the relationships were really like; I like the insight on human nature as much as the challenges. I hate it when the cast members later say things like "Well, they didn't show it when..." or "We actually did talk about that..." showing how much interesting stuff gets cut.
Is there anyway to preserve the integrity of the story, but still satisfy their need for the *gasp* factor?
The only worse manipulation of footage occurs in the previews!!! Those are a joke.
