I have never really been a fan of horse racing as it helps to grow up near one. The closes to me was the Belmont stakes a good 3 hours from where I grew up. If I had been around one, I'm sure I'd be a big fan as I enjoy Mammals racing w/their legs. When I say mammals I mean that I don't enjoy watching cars go in circles, bike racing, or anything where you need a machine. What I enjoy most about the show is the great cast of characters involved. As much as I enjoy watching the people it would be nice to focus a little bit more on the horses. Granted the show is called "Jockeys" so obviously that's what they focus on. Now if I had to watch this week to week on TV, I probably would skip it. Thanks to Netflix, I've been able to watch the two seasons pretty much nonstop thanks to the Instant Streaming feature. If you are a fan of horse racing or are just tired of of all the trash reality shows (I'm looking @ you "Big Brother" & "The Bachelor & ette series!") give this a try. It's nice to see some shows that don't have almost every single thing be staged, because let's face it, it's was mildly entertaining when "Survivor" came out 10 years ago, but now it's just lame.
