Before I start the formal review, friends, two customary notes that I seem to make every season. First of all, the audio mix on this show tends to go from bad to worse. The rear channels are far too hot, and Mr. Bergeron's microphone is frequently drowned out in the beginning of the show. This tends to get fixed as the night wears on. It's such a consistent issue that it must be the audio technician's doing. Second of all, if I seem awfully critical of the show and its participants, it's simply because I hope you all know that I have huge respect for those people who participate. This is hard work, especially if you're over 35, and the number of injuries bears testimony to that. These are, for the most part, fairly ordinary people who are pushing their endurance to the limit for your entertainment. To each of them, especially those with less innate talent, a hearty thank you and "well done!"
