Great first episode... I was amazed at how quickly everyone established their characters in such a short space of time. From my point of view, comparing what I have watched with living there, I think the two islands have already established their individual cultures and they can only be expanded upon as the series continues.
I had a look at a couple of the forums to check out the reaction to episode 1. It’s good to see the show has been greeted so positively. There’s to be a bit of annoyance that its only 1 show this year with no hut cam diary’s or third island, and people are already forming some strong views on a couple of the islanders, but that’s bound to happen.
It was interesting to see the first beach party. When I arrived Hollie was crying, Mark was annoyed and I had no idea what was going on. Although i had it all explained to me, it’s great to be able to be able to watch it as a fan.
After week 1, here is how the islands line up:
I didn’t talk about Nadejah and Sonny’s argument... and I’m not going to, but have a look at this nice video C4 put together.
