I think that while returnees should have been on the tribe opposite their own loved one, they could have at least had each tribe be half and half. Half returnees, half the other returnees loved ones. Oh well.
I think this will be an interesting season. Survivor is one of those shows that gets better as the season goes on, so you can't judge too harshly based on just a couple of episodes. Unlike Big Brother, which is good at the beginning, then great in the middle, then kind of boring at the end (except for this season, which sucked from beginning to end).
Depends on the season. Some seasons are obnoxiously boring after the merge because one tribe just knocks off the other one by one.
For Big Brother, I would alternately say, some seasons suck from beginning to end (2/3), and some are good from beginning to end (1/3). This season, as you said, was a suck season.
I agree it would have probably been better to do 5/5 returning/loved ones with all players opposite their loved one.
