ESPN's Tilt

Postby Pogotheostrich » Wed Jan 12, 2005 1:40 pm

Warning: If you are complaining about too much Poker on ESPN, don't read.

I hadn't heard anything about this until I saw a banner on ESPN.com and it starts tomorrow. Poker drama from the guys who brought you Rounders. Anyone seen any previews?

I hear the promos all the time on ESPN radio. :-P It's probably just me, but I wish they'd just go back to reporting the sports news and leave the bad dramas to other bad cable networks. :*)

You obviously haven't had a tv with ESPN on for more than 4 minutes at a time in the last three weeks, because the stupid promo for it has been playing non-stop.

Its good to see Michael Madsen getting some work outside of his narrating gig on "Animal Precinct".

Yeah, I've pretty much stopped watching ESPN unless it is the 6 a.m. Sportscenter while I am getting ready for work or PTI.

thats about the only reason i would entertain seeinG the show. unless you watch taraNtino movies you'll never see madsen anywhere. i realy liked rounders as a movie mostly cause of edward norton and the decent script but im not sure about this show. i gues ill give it a chance though because of madsen.

As my name can attest to, I'll be tuning in. We'll see how it is, but there are worse ways to burn an hr.

I'm going to tape it and take a look. I can think of a whole lot of things worse than watching a show geared around poker. Not to mention that if it stinks, by having it taped it should only run 40 minutes or so. :-D

It looks like a pretty good show from the previews. The other show they did "playmakers" I really liked so I will check this out tomorrow night.
