Hi, I'm new here, not to the programme just the newsgroup. I've been
watching Survivor since it first started in the UK. (Years ago) It very much
flopped because it was at the time of the first BB and it was put up as a
sort of rival. We don't receive American Survivor over here so my husband
downloads it every week. We get no information at all so could someone tell
me how popular it is over there? Thanks in advance x
It's past its peak but still has a stable loyal audience ... and will
last as long as they want to keep doing it ...
but wouldn't it be Survivour in the UK :-) ??
No, the extra "u" is only in some words, it's not an across the board
:-) ... I know that ... but I've been kidding British colleagues about
that for nearly 40 years ... I tell them not to worry ... if there is
ever a shortage of the letter "u" in the UK from overuse we'll lend
them some out of our strategic stockpile ...
and they've been squandering very useful "esses" also ... when we've
already found the fairly useless zee or zed does quite a good job
conserving the "esses" for when they are really needed ...
and to top it all off ... why are all the letters in Worchestershire
needed for what is a one or two syllable word ...
I guess the Brits stole all the vowels from the Welsh ... They don't
seem to have many left ...
just having fun ...
