Ok, I was on the road tonight and missed the show... anyone watch? I loved the original, how does this stack up?

I'm watching now, they showed 2 episodes tonight. It's pretty cool, I like it maybe better than the old. However I don't like how they interview each person between events, because they always have dumb answers. But it's really cool. If your on east coast you can catch the end of the second show now.

I agree. It's a big interruption of the action. I realize they're trying to get the competitor's feelings on what just happened, but it's not like they're spouting off earth-shatteringly inciteful news ... "well, I was trying to knock her off". Uh, yeah, that's why they call it "joust". Shut up and get on with the next event.

The original AG was pretty decent, but after watching episodes of Ninja Warrior, it's just hard to get excited about the new AG.

Crap.

Which probably goes for all these 'reality' tv shows. Humanity is going downhill :)
