Pondering: The Biggest Loser: Families

Is this show going to be 2 hours every week again this season? At the beginning I guess I can see it, because there are a lot of people, but in later weeks? Last year, it just got painful in the end.

Also, I just want to say, this episode was sponsored in part by Ziploc Zip n' Steam bags, and I have used those things. They are pretty cool. Still, I find the over the top product placement really distracting after a while... it reminds me of this - from Return of the Killer Tomatoes, one of my favorite bad movies ever. Watch the clip, and you'll understand.

Week 2 is always killer (tomatoes) on this show... their bodies don't know what they are trying to do and get confused. It's always sad.

Watching Mark cry every ten minutes last season sorta killed the show for me. I held on because I really wanted to see who won, but I didn't even try to watch last night.

It's sad, too, because motivating peaple to be healthy is a good thing. *Note that I said healthy, not skinny. There IS a difference...
