June 10th's Weekly TV Thoughts

Even for summer, this week is low.  Considering all the reading I got done, I'm not complaining at all.  But the list itself is short and sweet.

American Ninja Warrior – You can tell how much having obstacle experience helps.  I really felt sorry for the Latin America team since they weren’t much of a factor.  Of course, even having obstacle experience doesn’t mean anything – look at Jessie Graff in stage 1.  However, she overcame that quite nicely in stage two.  That was certainly a gamble, but it paid off in points and in her completing the stage.  How awesome is that?  It was tight there at the end, with two new Americans completing stage three.  So happy for the win.  I do think that knowing the exact course gives us an advantage, but it was so close.

Angie Tribecca – Yuck!  That episode was just nasty in so many ways.  Yes, there were some fun moments, like the hall of mirrors, but I could have done without so much of the gross out jokes in the episode.

Team Ninja Warrior – I was very happy with this.  I love Jamie, so I was rooting for him the entire time.  I was a bit surprised that some of the other big names that had lost weren’t in this.  Paul was, but that was about it.  Here’s hoping that Jamie’s team pulls it out next week and makes the finals.

  1. Totally agree on Team Ninja Warriors and Jessie Graff. She was awesome! Thought it was shocking that several lost their concentration on that cliff-hanger and turned around too soon. Drew may have been wise to wear his earplugs and go with his music. He must do that in training. Loved how he blocked everything out and nodded to himself just before starting the cliff-hanger.

    Disagree on Angie Tribeca. I thought it was one of the most fun of the recent episode, although there were a couple of the gross jokes I could have done without too.
