I really didn't care for the first women-season. They weren't worse than the men, but the chance of an exciting finish never seemed to present itself. I think the men try to play it safe to stay healthy....most of the women just don't possess the talents to KO or submit. They're there to be tough, and try to slog it out, mixed with mediocre wrestling that dominates all of the girls that don't practice takedown defense. I can't remember the last TUF season I liked, but there was one anomaly stuck in the last couple years, and aside from that, it's been pretty mediocre for...3 years?
I also don't have the time I used to, and run a few days behind on the shows I do watch, so all those factors (one being watching a season's worth of female fights) add up to me not watching.
If there ends up being a lot of finishes, or just a good knockout artist, or just someone that can attempt legitimate submissions, let me know. I'll tune in eventually.
I think the Uriah Hall season was the last one I liked. And almost solely because of him, even though he's a headcase to the point where he may never succeed fully because of it. But just watching that potential, mixed with a nuclear attitude, was good television. I don't think I've liked another season of TUF in the year before or after that one.
You might want to tune in this season.
Bloody Mary, full of vodka, blessed are you among cocktails. Pray for me now at the hour of my death, which I hope is soon. Amen.
