I've been re-watching old seasons on PlutoTv and boy, what a throw back. It got me thinking of previous things they've featured and stuff they've added over the years.
Stuff I liked:
The show extended past first game/pre season game.
Genuine meetups with rookies and or vets. Not that scripted nonsense or "mentor coahcing" with Melissa
Swimsuit trip being featured, even if it's an "online/Fb exclusive"
MORE practice clips, there's way too much "fluff" now than what it used to be.
Bringing back alumni to sit in on practices and comment. Love Michelle Keys.
More features on groups individually once they're assigned. I'd love to see Group to group practices outside of scheduled ones.
Stuff I absolute hate:
Boot camp nonsense
Melissa as a mentor. Does Kelly expect us to forget she was a mediocre at best Vet and almost got cut? I will say I love her as a judge, she's honest and can see through frills and sequins or the diamond in the roughs. I just think her role needs to be shortened to only auditions.
Neil "shes hot" McCoy- what is the point with this guy? I respect he's had a nice career and all, but he's proven season after season that he offers no value to the panel and if he's continually on there it just makes your judging process look more shallow than people assume it already is.
"Fashion shows" and how it's so important they know how to walk in heels because they have so many opportunities to model during the season. They've literally only walked for Belk, Swimsuit, and I think a boutique that one time. Sit down Kelly.
Tina Kalina. I never realized that the first time we see her is actually in season one...boy if we only knew what was ahead of us.
