I'll spoiler it, because I don't know who's watching it. The hockey players are still alive, and it didn't look good for them though. There's a father and son team running on three legs - the dad ruptured tendons and his Achilles's Heel. Eeek. Also, first team in AR history to get eliminated...while holding a Fast Forward. :face:


That elimination was an incredible train wreck

My wife and I watch this, and that episode was crazy with the couple with the express pass, although we were happy because we didn't really like the guy (felt bad for the girl). He was a moron and that was a big trainwreck. Even the host didn't understand.

We are rooting for the hockey guys.

it's another weak cast, imo. i liked the father son team, but now i just think it's bordering on irresponsible for him to not bail and go get surgery. i can't imagine flying and running around on crutches is good for a torn tendon.

i was a little sad to see fake anders holmvik go. he was a doof, but a nice guy.

watched an epsiode of Grey's last night (2nd season) that had a high school hockey player cut off his own finger so he could play a game in front of scouts.
Spoiler:
Puts finger on ice so it can be sewn back on later. Only doesn't sanitize the inside of the glove, and gets a bad infection, losing use of the hand, and ends up never able to play hockey again

Last night's episode of The Office recycled most (if not all) the footage from the backdoor pilot to The Farm, which would've featured Dwight and his family running his farm.

If you weren't sure why they decided to scrap plans for that show please watch it. Then you'll understand. Nobody else ever needs to watch it. I was so incredibly bored by it.

The first two episodes sucked, and I was just going to quit watching it all together. But then the last 3 (I still need to watch last nights) have progressively gotten better and I enjoyed them. I'm not looking forward to the puppet episode, but it's been pretty good.

Yeah, we kept wondering if that was the "pilot" epiosde of the Farm.

I was a little more patient, but the part where I said "I'm glad this didn't go through" was when he put the crows beaks in front of the girl he wanted to ask out. They just had the constant over the top weird crap of Dwights family. It was too much.

The one part I did laugh was when his brother drove the car into the grave.

I've found myself drifting away from The Office over the last few weeks. Between the angle with Pam and the frigging cameraman, the business in Philly, and the other boring plot lines, I just haven't felt any desire to watch it.

I'm just sticking through it because there are just a handful of episodes left and might as well see it through the end.

If it was renewed for another 2 years or something, I'd probably stop.

Aside from my earlier post about the politics, I have found a few things pretty solid, but overall not as good as they have been.

I could see them making some kind of Katya/Barry spin-off.

got caught up with this last night, 2nd episode was better than 1st. I don't care for the wives storylines, it's the only thing that doesn't feel authentic for that time, feels like its forced from a soap opera of today. Other than that, I'm looking forward to more

They rely on gimmick episodes because the writing is spotty and the characters are extremely superficial. I won't miss it when it's gone.

I think that Nordic culture was actually far ahead on women's lib than others. I could be wrong though.
