Expected worse, tbh. It is a good product i guess, decently filmed it's just wrestling in general is not all that interesting

However it is a bittersweet moment to have to look at OG SP footage at the beginning,

amid all the bullshit, WPC and Yoko Corgan and whatnot. Like no way is this the same ship it used to be

Only one episode in so far—Billy’s narration is weird and the fake reality tv storylines are already making me cringe.

James’ cameo is cool as shit though.

Was there any more to James' appearance than what was already shown on social media? That was the biggest surprise so far.

He talked about how he only went to see wrestling once when a friend dragged him there and he got a T-shirt, but that was basically his only exposure to wrestling.

Ok just watched episode 2 and the whole damn thing is about wrestling. I didn't think it was possible to hate wrestling any more than I already do, but the only thing worse than wrestling is this two-bit NWA league which is like a half-step above backyard wrestling.

If episode 3 is like 2, no way I can finish this series.

It is literally a show about the NWA. Not being hyperbolic, they drop all pretence of it being anything else after the first few eps.

With which SP song or album would you compare the NWA?

i really hate how earnest he sounds in the narration, it makes me feel so bad for him taking on this 2 bit dogshit that no one likes and he's putting this burden on himself for no reason. it went so bad he needed to do that 2018 stadium tour

like you almost want to give him a hug despite it all

there are moments where it seems like Billy feels trapped in the NWA situation and is doing his best to make it succeed but may be something he regrets. it's clear that this whole show is just part of trying to make the NWA situation work.

Too bad they didn’t bake the tapes of the Carnyland footage instead.

D’Arcy would absolutely never have let this happen, and preventing bullshit like this was her greatest value to the band for sure. It’s sorely missed.

just watched all of it. insanely boring. this show did absolutely nothing to help gage my interest in wrestling, the wrestlers themselves, or even understand wtf it's all about.

very minor head butting between everyone, no development of character, constant shitting on joe naylor by everyone, and that's it. it's a 4 hour commercial for the NWA and there is absolutely nothing exciting about it.

also ATUM songs sprinkled all over the soundtrack and now I can't hear any of these songs without imagining some cheesy wrestling bit.

curious-- when was it first known amongst the fanbase that billy was a wrestling fan?

it's insane how well the ATUM songs function as B-roll for wrestling clips
