review of Survivor Africa recap episode: “So far, so bland.”
Turns out that there was some new footage in last night’s recap episode of Survivor Africa, but as the Toronto Sun’s Bill Brioux points out, “had this one been nothing but an hour of recycled footage, right now you’d be able to see an orange glow on the horizon where the CBS offices once stood, before being burned to the ground by a tribal torch-wielding mob.” Brioux recaps the recaps from last night’s ep.
