||I'm not a minecraft person myself, but I think it's really awesome to see how many different permutations of it exist and the fact that there are survivor series based on it is freaking awesome.
||My editing got a lot better over time and MO's first half is pretty shaky from just an editing perspective, though the cast is great and the post-merge is awesome.
Would be nice to have even genders but they're working on it for later seasons and some of the girls they have are super strong characters.
||You make a really good point -- casting and storytelling are really what have always made survivor exceptional, and my goal was always to recreate those two things to the best of my ability.
||The familiarity of the players makes them really comfortable with each other rather than just playing nice, and it's a really fun group of characters.
||Both super fun personalities.
Max was a really cool dude too, I hope he's cutthroat enough strategically/socially to go far, worried he could be a pre-merge #blindside or maybe merge boot.
||I would love to see this twist incorporated with a One World concept, which is part of what made it work so great for me
||And I certainly understand the desire of being a puppetmaster and watching friends go through this...that's what inspired me to do the same.
||But I certainly wouldn't fear a doomsday "every interesting person is leaving!!" scenario.
||At least with this, even the pre-merge production value of Season 2 won't seem as bad -- but my editing definitely gets better with time.
||But that cast is so good and the post-merge is so great.
