    I really wanted to try and watch this show. But as it opened with one jittery hand held sequence after another, I realized that it was unwatchable. If it was a radio show, we might forgive them. But this is the 21st century, with high definition imagery.



    Nausea is not entertaining. An 8' wide HDTV screen filled with blurry, jerky imagery, swoops, zooms and jump cuts is not acceptable. I skipped ahead, hoping for a respite.



    Even the B&W retro images were "spiced" up with unnecessary movement of the camera. Catering to an attention deficit disorder audience is probably their intent. But as entertainment, it was a dismal failure.



    Even when I reduced the image to 1/4 of the screen, it didn't cure the problem.



    Perhaps the producers, directors, and editors use tiny monitors and truly believe they are improving the content with constant motion, but this audience is not amused.
