Nomads: Jacksons on Rush HD

I happened to catch the end of this show last night. Have any of you guys seen this? It has to be the worst whitewater video that I have ever seen.

Maybe, the first half hour was better then the last half hour? The last half hour was so lame I could hardly watch it. I can't believe the Jacksons would not have been embarrassed by this flick, it was bad.

First of all, I thought the personal interviews made them look like arrogant brats. With that said, they may be the best people on the planet, I really don't know?

Then they showed them arriving in Golden for the JR Olympics, but they were a day late because they weren't smart enough to know the correct day for the event. So his kids missed the qualifier, but then the JR Olympic committee decided to make an exception for his kids and they were allowed to compete for the championship. It made them look stupid for not knowing the right date and then privileged over other competitors.

They also had a stretch of EJ talking in a one sided conversation on a cell phone with his wife for several minutes in their massive RV about messing up their schedule; nothing a viewer would possibly care about.

There were other things that made this video annoying. I would be curious what others think that have seen this video. Not being a kayaker and not really know anything about the Jacksons, I thought this video really sucked and did nothing for the sport in the eyes of aspiring future kayakers.
