The Great Big Challenge Guide: Survivor

So the idea here is instead of having one massive file that takes forever to sort and scroll through, I thought I'd split the second version of my Survivor challenge guide by season. I'm going to add these seasons one at a time instead of all at once, and each episode now contains a proper analysis of its challenges and twists. Note that despite seasons being missing, I am writing these descriptions as though they are present - thus, challenges repeated without change are skipped over and will be discussed in the original appearances. Feel free to comment on this post to tell me what needs to be improved and changed for future seasons, and to request particular seasons. (I'll also be doing this for seasons of several other shows at the same time, so updates may not always be immediate.)

Let's begin, shall we? They'll be listed in chronological order when they are added.

Survivor Challenge Guide, Volume 2, Part 1: Seasons 21-24

For those of you who may be unaware, a few years ago I wrote a complete guide to Survivor's challenges. Now that it's ridiculously out-of-date, it's time to update it. There's been a complete reformat - it's now more text-based and less meta-referential - but the basic idea of listing every Survivor challenge in history is still there. As it's taking me forever to update to my satisfaction, I thought I'd release it a few seasons at a time (starting with four of the five seasons missing from the old guide), and make changes to the new format as criticism sees fit. Subsequent versions are going to add more seasons, although I do need feedback in order to know what to change. Feel free to comment, even if just to say it sucks.

So, that said, enjoy.
