Who's Now is awful as well. ESPN in general has just totally gone downhill. The only thing they do right is college basketball coverage and NFL coverage, other than that its really awful. I don't even think they cover MLB very well, but that's just my opinion. ESPN has gone more from sports to entertainment, so now if I want sports news I check out FSN's Final Score where they actually do real highlights without all the crap in between.
I've heard varying views on the Bronx is Burning... I said in my first post that I thought Steinbrenner was pretty bad- I think the actor overdoes the whole "demanding" attitude of Steinbrenner, and he almost acts like a 3 year old that wants candy instead of a grown man who owns a baseball team. I'm not a Yankee fan so my knowledge of him is limited, but is Steinbrenner actually like that? In the show he just acts like a total baby and that's one of the reasons I don't like him.
Whoever plays Billy Martin does an all right job, I think his character is a bit boring off the field but still, not bad.
And Reggie Jackson is perfectly done. I think the actor that plays him is doing a magnificent job.
All in all, I didn't like the 2nd episode so maybe I'll check out the 3rd... maybe not. Still have to decide.
