Although I understand the criticism, I still like it. I guess its because I don't like anything else on TV and it's really cool to see a show about a hobby that I am passionate about that the world largely ignored for the first decade of my passion.
The criticisms I agree with: - yes, the focus on the cheating really sucks. I don't find it interesting and it is bad pub. - yes, it is completely unrealistic. - yes, there are holes in the plot bigger than that hole in the sock Junell keeps under his bed
Here is the criticism I used to agree with: - it is sooooo over-the-top
Yes, but it has settled down. I forgive Tilt. Shows tend to do that early on and then settle in. I thought last night's episode was a good example of not being too over the top (relatively speaking of course)
Here is what I like: It's TV. It's entertainment. And I think the guys are cool and I want to be them. You know, I thought Han Solo was cool too and I wanted to be him, but nobody shat on him for being unrealistic.
So I will continue to watch Tilt.
(and before you make fun of me for wanting to be Han Solo, ask Junell who used to sign papers in elementary school "Luke" because he thought he had theforce in him.)
Yeah, I got caught up yesterday as well and this week's episode was very good. The "Internet poker champ" was a little bit out of place, but his closing line was rather funny. Yeah, it's grown on me too.
