Remember when it was a challenge to pick out tiny scraps of information from previews? Some people here go back far enough to remember when a network didn't give out the entire episode in a twenty-second trailer. Weren't those days a lot more interesting than what the peacock's trying to give us now?
How little content does any given episode of BL contain? So little that the essential plotline not only can be captured in a third of a minute -- but the network feels it must be in order to keep anyone watching at all.
Here's the State Of The Spoiling for the upcoming airdate: there are two teenagers on the show. One of them is guaranteed to be removed from the season. Judging from the scenes at the scales, this is probably not due to injury (which would be the only possible suspense left). If only one teen winds up in the bottom two, that's who goes home and all doubt, suspense, and drama are removed from the episode. If they both fall below the yellow line, then we already know who's up for elimination -- turning all attempts to create drama during the workout sequences, weigh-in, and whatever nervous breakdown Bob's going through this week into a completely pointless exercise.
A weight loss competition revolving around completely pointless exercises. I suppose that's meant to be ironic.
To read a book when you know how the story ends before ever touching a page, you have to respect the craftsmanship of the work. You have to. NBC's Department Of Infinite Monkeys never got the memo.
