It will always get better toward the end of the season. This season did have its excessive milking of the drama, but it's getting better. Last season wasn't that bad. My opinion is that you get some idea of the fighters' personalities. I know there is plenty of exploitation and exaggeration done through editing, but you do get a good look at the fighters. As painful as it is to watch all the boring BS, I figure some of these fighters will be around for a while, and it's worth it to me to see who they are. I don't want to be a big fan of someone and find out later they're a total douche. That's just disappointing. See, I knew Forrest was a cool mofo from the beginning, and that's because of the show.
