Survivor: One World, "Bum-Puzzled"

Survivor is currently airing its 24th season, yet it continues to provide surprises that rank among the craziest moments of the entire series. This week's episode would be a top contender solely for the guys' ridiculous choice to visit Tribal Council after winning immunity. They're too afraid of Colton to go against the dim-witted idea, and that's just the beginning. The Tribal Council shows close-minded behavior that sets a new low, which is saying a lot. Colton's hatred for Bill is ugly and only seems worse the further Jeff digs into the issue. It goes beyond race (although that's a part of it) and reveals the extreme limits of Colton's understanding for any life but his own. It's not an easy ride, but it's also great television. "Bum-Puzzled" keeps the season rolling, and I have no idea where it will go next. For more details, check out my review of this unbelievable episode for Sound on Sight.
