No Hardline yesterday so I turned in The Richie and Greggo Extravaganza.
Greggo was back, sounding raspy but not, uh, overmedicated or anything.
You know, "extravaganza" is the wrong word to describe that show. "Experience" would be better.
It's really not good. It's anything but extravagant. But since I've only caught 15-20 minutes at a time, and maybe only a half-dozen times, I'll reserve further judgment until I can listen to more of it. If I can stand it.
The last of my preliminary takes, which is a lot like my first one: They all sound nervous. They all talk very rapidly, talk over each other. In the segment I listened to yesterday, Richie and the other guy were constantly correcting Greg's factual mistakes. And Greggo, bless his heart, just does not have enough interesting and original to say to be the focal point of that show. The best guy on it is the non-Richie/Greggo guy who I don't know. They're always trying to throw the conversation to Hammer, and he tries, starts hammering away, but there's very little there. He just sounds dumb, and it's sad. He's more hyperbolic even than Corby.
But it might get better, the balance might improve, they might find a plus-one who will make all the difference. For now, though, unless Greg disappears again, I'm out.
