Thanks, I just set tivo.
Cool, thanks for the heads up!
With great power, comes great responsibility.
Show just ended, not bad for a half hour show
Oh good night!!! How do they expect people to watch it when we have to work?

To those who read and partiipated in the thread "Why it's not Big Time" several weeks back ... Just watched the show on FOX. I rest my case.
If you have Tivo at home, and you are at work (Doing nothing besides playing on OSO) and you find out that boat racing is coming on......You can go to Tivo's website, log in, and tell it to record the race. I think it needs 1/2 hr notice to get the signal to your Tivo. This is all granted that you Tivo is hooked into your home cable/dsl router.Originally Posted by robyw1

For us uneducated fans please state your case position HERE..
What exactly are your specific complaints related to the show??
-Should be an hour show..
-Camera focus should be improved. This same condition existed and still does for Unlimited Hydros, Champ Boats and more. It may be a technical problem with the zoom going from optical to digital zoom. Close ups, however, are great.
-Coverage of incidents were far from acceptable. But I
imagine coverage was limited by the 1/2 hour time limit. Besides, camera coverage (with limited number of cameras) relies on luck as any photog will tell you to catch an incident from start to finish. This is not NASCAR where you cant go potty without being on film.
-I didn't time this one but the average time dedicated to actual racing durin the average Unlimited Hydro/Champ Boat TV coverage the past 2-3 years was 9-10 minutes of racing with the rest dedicated to commercials and interviews.
The best points IMHO:
-There was exposure on TV.
-It made Smitty look like a nice guy, so I will go to Sarasota without fear.
-Interviews were short and concise and fan friendly.
-Having seen 100s of boat racing TV shows I rate this one as an B+ for effort and look forward for many more.
