    Great piece! I didn't care for Val during her season but she sounds so fun here.

    Or like Sherlock. Really enjoyed the piece on Jim Clark. Even Jeremy was teary and I'm sure he'd seen the piece many times before they showed it to the tent audience. Maybe that's something the trio can get back into on the side - interesting history pieces that'd be right at home with 30-for-30 audience. Richard's rant about his wife's horse made me chuckle. It was a bit of a throwaway segment, but I liked the idea of making the Lamborghini SUV climb the ski slope.

    AGT The Champions: All Episode Discussion

    You're right. I should have expected an extra results show with guest collaborations.

    AGT The Champions: All Episode Discussion

    JorWat on Reddit posted that NBC's PR group has already published spoiler pics from the February 11th finals. (So I guess there are only six episodes.) I wasn't able to click through the mini snaps, but I was able to see at least two who got wildcards: For the upcoming fifth episode, it also looks like...

    Figure Skating

    I think it was a re-cut clip from last year, a response to the simplistic 'quad king' fever before and after the Olympics. Everyone from Wired to the New York Times got excited talking about quads before Pyeongchang. The tone of the piece probably made more sense at the time but his voice sounded a little tinny in the audio. The Super Bowl ad last year was more effective at making the same point about the work behind the scenes, without the voiceover. I liked how they were specifically directed to minimize their commentary during the free skates. I wasn't as familiar with Michael Weiss' commentary work but I liked his post-skate analysis. Mirai was a pleasant surprise during Ice Desk too - she was thoughtful, measured and got technical where warranted. I really hope US Figure Skating will bring in former young champions like Mirai and Michelle to help Alysa deal with some of the hype and media attention. Sending her to senior competitions to get used to the environment is good too but I'm sure there are other, lesser known lessons from Michelle's first senior years.

    Figure Skating

    I thought he purposefully held back on the playfulness of the program today, probably to avoid technical mistakes. The early exhibition and other versions of Caravan (Skate America?) were demonstrably more jubilant and expressive. In the face and in the arm movements. I also think the untailored vest worked better with the off-kilter theme than the new Vera Wang. I'm sure someone will eventually post a side-by-side video of Caravan for comparison. I was wondering why he didn't get called on the first jump and Scott Hamilton mentioned today that technical judges only get one camera angle for analysis. That would explain a lot. Ice Desk (around 14:20, beginning has a chat with Alysa.)

    The Grand Tour

    He's looked pregnant for a number of years. I'm more alarmed that May's gut is going down the same path. The first ep was okay - I didn't miss the celebrity segment; the dig at the new Top Gear presenter was relatively subtle and May's quips - scripted or not - were delivered with precision. The trailer for the Columbia special which will be released Friday and Saturday:

    I'd be surprised if she didn't get one of the wildcard spots.

    I hoped he had more Majors in him too. It really wasn’t that long ago that he had gotten back to number one in the rankings. The press conference was hard to watch. It sounds like he’ll have to have more invasive hip surgery like Bob Bryan just to tie his shoes without pain.

    AGT The Champions: Media & Speculation

    Tokio Myers’ participation has been confirmed. I’m not disputing Tokio’s musicianship and performance skills but I don’t see the AGT producers manipulating a win for him. I could see a storyline where he’s a refreshing revelation for the “super fans” and gets voted to the last round, ultimately losing to a sentimental favorite/sob story or a popular US winner.

    NBC/AGT posted a 43 minute video of Terry Crews painting a Christmas scene. As relaxing as Bob Ross.
