One of the many questions debated by Survivor lovers is what season to suggest as a starting point to get a new viewer hooked on the show? There's no doubting it's an important question, get it right and you could convert a new fan, get it wrong and whoever you're trying to convince may be lost to the show forever. In today's feature article, Ozlet Anthony Rossi takes a look at some of the seasons that could play a part in a successful introduction to the show. Read on for some ideas on what seasons to suggest.
The show Survivor has been running for approximately 15 years now, but not everyone has watched every season and some have not seen it at all. Many wonder what season would be the most appropriate to suggest so that they become interested. Is it a good idea to start right at the beginning even though it may not contain a lot of drama or should someone pick the most dramatic season and work from there? Some argue that the best season should be the starting point so that someone could easily get hooked. Or is the beginning the best place to start? I will debate several of the seasons and why they could be a good starting point and in the end I will state what I believe should be the starting point for new viewers.
The very first season may be a good starting point, because it is what started this revolutionary show. If the first was not up to par then the entire show could have been a flop and not have lasted as long as it has. Some may argue that this season is quite boring and doesn’t really captivate a fresh audience. Others claim that this season is brilliant and its historic nature is what truly makes it truly shine. This would be a good place to start, because this very season revolutionized television. Plus, this season has one of the greatest casts in the show’s history.
Probably one of the greatest seasons for it offers great entertainment, but good strategy as well. This season is a great mix of character development with interesting storylines and entertaining strategic gameplay. It has the feel of an action packed new school style season while maintaining the best qualities of the old school seasons.
The landmark 20th season was highly anticipated and had a lot to live up to and it certainly delivered. Heroes vs. Villains was action packed with a lot of drama. There were entertaining challenges, interesting gameplay and plenty of characters to root for. This season is very much strategically driven and doesn’t have many character moments, but is an overall an entertaining season. This season would be a good place to start, because it is so entertaining.
Some say that Cagayan is the best season of all time; I don’t agree with that, but I can’t ignore the impact that this season has had. This season was intense as it was filled with great and abysmal strategic decisions, and character moments as well. All of this combined together made the season compelling to watch.
Winner – Pearl Islands
This season is a real standout, because it is a great mix of entertainment and strategy. Pearl Islands has a lot of drama which coupled with character development makes it very fun to watch. It has the right amount of game twists without detracting from the fundamental theme of Survivor, which involves having people from different walks of life working together and showing their struggles of interacting with one another within the confines of the game.
