Thanks for the upload! Just started watching it on the xbox. I've been looking forward to it.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

That is a treasure...

 

To those of you who thought it was boring...if you want drama queens, go back to Pittsburgh and film there.  They have a plethora of divas there.  We're just wanting to get work done and win some games.

What does thinking it was boring and wanting drama queens have to do with anything?  Nick Lidstrom was hardly a diva, but watching the "day in the life" special with him was far more interesting than this was.  It gave much more of a feel of the daily grind, the schedules they keep, being on the road, keeping up with the family,the training involved and what not.  Same with the Fox Sports Detroit special. 

 

This show just felt choppy and thrown together. To me, they switched from one storyline to the next too quickly and didn't spend enough time on the things that were interesting.  I didn't get the feel that it was "all access" or behind the scenes at all. Most of it felt planned and a little staged.  Maybe the later episodes will be better.

I hate to say it, but I agree with the review 100%.  He pretty much nailed it.  I'm glad someone else noticed the ridiculous "hostile crowd" comment, which consisted of one fan (either a 400 lb woman or a teen boy going through puberty) yelling "Detroit sucks!"  Also agreed with restaurant scene evaluation.  I felt like I was watching another Detroit Edison commercial with Drapes and Ozzie.  The acting was similar.

I'm afraid I agree... but hope the next episode is much better.  Watching Carlyle complain about healthy food options and trying to electrocute himself on a weird looking toaster?  Not so much.

 

More interviews with actual players = not Weiss.  Whoever got the idea that Weiss playing against the Panthers -- which we saw more of than the Wings in this episode -- was a big deal???  Non-story.

 

I will say the coverage was even-handed regarding which team has been worse this season, the Wings or the Leafs.  :lol:  

 

The other 24/7s have been much better productions.  Hopefully, this will get better, much like our current luck on the ice.  ;)

On a side note, Howard is left-handed?? Why doesn't he play left handed??


This might be getting a little heated. Just know I don't hate any of you guys.

 

That doesn't mean that I respect ideas & opinions. Some ideas & opinions are ridiculous.

 

In fact, if you confront my ideas & opinions, that will lead to a discussion. (We're on a discussion board after all. Don't forget that!)

Money on the board:  Current total: $8

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

The segment with Helm, Abs, Quincey and Smith was one of the most fakest things I've seen on TV. Really? A conversation about Datsyuk? God try to be more original. Obviously it was a set-up conversation. Probably HBO camera guys fed up of not getting crap for coverage and told em to talk about Datsyuk or something. The Alfredsson segment was much better. He was very natural and so were his kids (little goofballs) that's the kind of stuff you want to see. Not fake conversations for the cameras...

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

I doubt HBO actually suggested it, but it did seem forced and unnatural. Like they were thinking "Oh s*** they're filming us, we need something to talk about!"

Really doubt they'd want camera crews around at such high-pressure times.

I"m also a lefty. I write left handed, eat left handed etc.  But anything requiring strength and precision I do with my right hand.  I shoot right, throw right, etc.


Lets go RED WINGS!!!
