All flash, no substance.
10 January 2019 | by Bryan-See all my reviews

It's obvious way too much money was spent on this. Fancy graphics, elaborate set design, well known host. Every contestant has their complete life story from birth told because apparently that's what american audiences want.

Then we get to the tests, the reason people have tuned in. Instead of having many different tests the show decided to spend all the money on a few huge spectacles. I hope you like them because you'll see them over and over.

The commentator has little to add so he rehashes stuff you've already heard. "This block is 1000 pounds" "They are pushing 150lb slabs up the ramp". Yeah, I heard ya the first time.

I think the head to head aspect makes the show worse. In Ninja Warrior, because you had a time limit you could run out of time and not finish the course, not to mention you could fall in the pit and lose instantly. In this they always finish the course, the only thing that changes is whether they get first or second, and in most cases the front runner is so far ahead halfway through that all tension is lost since you know who is going to win, you're just waiting for the inevitable.

I watched the first episode. It has a 2 hour runtime but the show is actually 1h25m. It took 7.5 minutes for the first match, then another 10 minutes for the next one. Admittedly, near the end less time was wasted, they can't really tell their backstories more than once after all.

I'll watch another episode, hopefully they'll have different tests but I'll be skipping past all the filler.
