Lameness in Abundance
4 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If this year's incarnation of American Ninja Warrior is presented like in season's past, then it will be a complete waste of time. I started watching this two years ago but had to stop after just a few episodes because they took about 08 minutes worth of usable footage and stretched it out to an hour-long show. How? By endlessly rehashing events after every commercial break; by having way too many commercial breaks--and commercials; and by creating completely false drama in order to try and make this Lame show more exciting. Too bad the producers missed. This could have been a great competition show. Instead, they turned it into a boring, endlessly redundant snooze-fest that is totally unworthy of the Ninja Warrior moniker.
