I still don't understand what the heck ESPN is trying to do with E:60. The first episode got pretty good reviews and the whole thing seemed like a shrewd move by the "Leader". The Jason Ray piece was moving and the round table discussions were an inside look at the reporting process.
Well almost immediately after that first episode there were rumors of E:60's "Exclusives" not actually being exclusive, a racial controversy, a four month break, a railroading of Miguel Tejada and then another four month break. For a show that only has about eight total episodes, that's a heck of a lot of hiccups.
Well, the show is back tonight after that second hiatus and they're bringing you more ground breaking reporting. Just kidding, they're tackling stories that you first learned about months ago....
Highlights of tomorrow’s show:Eventing is just a piece on the dangers of Horse Jumping and the Dana Torres story is how old now ? Don't even get me started on the MMA Fighter that robbed the bank....that guy was arrested back in June of 2006! The only new and interesting piece is the Randy Moss one, but that story is about a month and a half old as well.
-Dara Torres talks to E:60 about her record fifth Olympics as a swimmer at age 41
-Eventing: the most dangerous Olympic competition and also considered the world’s deadliest sport
-The story of an English mixed-martial arts fighter implicated in the biggest cash heist in history
-A behind-the-scenes look at New England Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss and his foray into NASCAR team ownership.
The whole show just seems to be in the midst of an identity crisis, and with OTL producing daily shows now at 3pm, it's odd that they can't figure anything out. Maybe the should send Bill Simmons back to EA Sports to get people to watch?
