In my mind, the most-recent, last truly great season of Survivor is Survivor: David vs. Goliath, season 37, which aired in 2018 and was altogether enjoyable from start to finish, despite is ridiculous-sounding theme.
It gave us great players and characters including The White Lotus creator Mike White, wrestler John Hennigan, Gabby Pascuzzi, Angelina Keeley, Natalie Cole, Christian Hubicki, Davie Rickebacker, and Nick Wilson, plus moments ranging from blindsides to an evacuation, betrayals to a jacket request.
I’ve collected together two lists: all of my recaps of the season, plus a list of behind-the-scenes stories. If you’re watching for the first time, start with the recaps, as the second list has some stories that reveal what happened.
