I've tried to watch it a couple of times. The training stuff is woefully overrun by the HSBS. If I wanna watch dudes quibble, I'll go back out on a fishing boat...or watch the Deadliest Catch.

Even in season 1? I thought it was good... I dunno. Someone today told me I was aesthetically unrefined so what do I know...

Yael, I've only watched it a bit recently. I have no idea what season it is currently (unless we're talking spring/summer/fall/winter or pollock/cod/rockfish types of seasons).

I think it's season 5 or something. I watched season 1 on DVD. Coaching by Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell, fighters were Stephan Bonnar, Kenny Florian, Forrest Griffin, Sam Hoger, Alex Karalexis, Josh Koscheck, Chris Leben, Josh Rafferty, Diego Sanchez, Christopher Sanford, Alex Schoenauer, Lodune Sincaid, Bobby Southworth, Mike Swick, Jason Thacker. Nate Quarry was on too but mostly just coaching.There WAS a lot of drama and a lot of fluff but there were some good training sessions and some good fights. I thought it was interesting enough to watch all five DVDs and go to work with three hours sleep the next day, so... I dunno...

I have cable, but I never watch it. If I didn't have a wife that watched TV, I would ditch the cable and keep it only for the occasional DVD. I find TV to be mind-numbing. I waste my time on the Internet, which is slightly less mind-numbing (except for the Karma thread).

I catch an episode of Ultimate Fighter now and then... the drama is a bit much, but I honestly don't know if it is any worse now than at the beginning. Still, some of the training stuff is pretty cool and I have seen some really good fights on there. From what I have seen, those guys usually throw down; they are there to fight and they leave it all in the Octagon. Maybe the skill level isn't quite as high as the fights you typically see in a PPV event, but there is something to be said for intensity.

Regarding TV in general, for about 8 years, I had one local channel and a VCR & DVD player. I now share a house with some other folks, so we have cable. I like it primarily because of the Internet connection, but it is convenient to catch the occasional sporting event. Just because it's there doesn't mean I have to watch it.
