As my usual J-dub self, I half way listen when the commercials/previews come on. I assumed Castaways was Survivor like. I was very wrong. Other than being on an island, the similarities stop 🛑 there.
This is documentary style and I usually enjoy documentaries but this show is slow moving. And it is triggering in many ways. When the 21 year old kid tried to beat the tide and swim across, my anxiety was singing. He made it but until he did 😮. Then he left.
And the poor guy left on his own and who wants nothing more than company. Yet in a good news ending, she came back.
Somehow it felt disrespectful to turn it off. I made it through. Yet I know that I don’t have the heart to watch next week.
As always more to come.
