['Survivor: Redemption Island' - 'Keep Hope Alive']
Did you notice the new tattoo Russell's sporting for this season of 'Survivor'? If not, it's the title of the episode and a good mantra for this season. After all, the whole concept of Redemption Island is about keeping hope alive and finding a way to get back into the game. And this time, you have to earn it every step of the way.
In fact, we finally got to see how that process is going to unfold each week with our first look into the Redemption Island Arena, as well as what type of challenge was awaiting Francesca and Matt as the first duel of the season.
If you were hoping -- like I was -- for something akin to the gladiatorial battles we see on 'Spartacus,' you would have been disappointed.
