Grit" review by
Thursdays 9/8c on FOX
I don't usually watch this type of
show, but I thought I would give it a try.
Surprisingly, I liked it, mostly... but it still could use
some work. It is hosted by wrestler John Cena (who I think
does a wonderful job as the host of the show). The show has
four highly-decorated veterans of the armed forces that
train four teams of people in challenges that are used in
training our armed forces. The last contestant left on
each team wins $250,000. The contestants eliminate
themselves from the game if they give up and go home.
I loved the mentors and their
stories. I loved seeing how our armed forces train to
protect us, but the weakest part of the show is the
contestants. There are very few of them that I was
actually rooting for, and they wasted too much time fighting
with each other. I think this show would be better if they
focused more on the challenges rather then the bickering. I
also would enjoy hearing more about the contestants and what
led them to want to be on the show. I am not adding this
show to my DVR, but I would most likely stream it or watch
it if all the other shows I watch were in reruns that day.
I don't know where they tape the show, but the scenery is
also beautiful. I give this show 3 1/2 stars out of 5.
