I'd never watched Survivor before and it's only now that I realise why: it didn't do very well in the UK in the early noughties so it disappeared. That explains it. But while it flopped here, it soared elsewhere, and so it was, as a complete newbie to the series, I recently found myself watching the 2019 Australian Survivor series on Amazon Prime. And it absolutely blew me away.
It is perfect. Now, I don't know if that's because I happened upon a particularly golden series (pun intended for those in the know), or whether I reacted in this way because it was all so new to me. Maybe it's just Australians being brilliant at reality TV. But this show has everything.
