Yeah, I'm aware they aren't in order, they are edited, and recorded earlier.

Not so.

Many people don't watch the episodes "LIVE" as they air anymore but instead use these new-fangled devices called "DVR's" or "PVR's" to record (or time-shift) shows for later viewing. (maybe you've heard of 'em? They were called "video recorders - or VCR's" back in the day)

I've actually waited WEEKS to watch a new show using my D-V-R. Yes, WEEKS! (It's true)

(That's, "digital video recorder" for you)

I only use DVR's but manage to view the majority of same day content, especially the shows that have robust discussion threads. If I haven't watched the most current episode and I enter a forum thread, I do so willingly at my risk. Often I will pass reading the thread until I watch the show. Depends on the show.

From what I recall the official policy is that using spoilers is not required once the show has finished airing on the west coast.

Blob Launch is most excellent, at least for the first couple of couples.

Also, I really love the color purple tonight--and I don't mean the movie.
post #275 of 586
AHAHAHAAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAAHHAAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I heart the Blob!!! Need Blob + Door Knock = EPIC WIN!!!!!!

Also, hay Jill! Giggity!

Mrs. Neck farts needs to leave Mr. Beat box.

I didn't think Jill looked that good in those shorts.

I was rofling when the tae kwan do lady did a face plant into the rotating disk and the announcers said "Sweep the Face!" Great Karate Kid (the original) reference.

That lady was a little scary looking too. She must have left a big stain on that disk when she buried her face into it.

I think they made the final round too hard this time.. I mean both women gave up, aka timed out at 20 mins!

The strange thing is that the layout was actually pretty easy. Maybe the water was extremely cold and just sapped everyone's strength. It sure seemed like they spent a lot of time in the water when they wiped out.

Yeah, I didn't understand what made that course so tough. It's not like they foamed it up or anything. .

We;ve seen that exact same course completed in 8-12 minutes. Can't recall the exact time, but it seemed that these folks just made some poor decisions and had a few bad breaks...some of them nearly literal!
post #284 of 586
Yeah, I'm trying to remember what the course looked like when they were finishing in under 4 minutes and I think it was pretty similar, but my memory just isn't good enough to say for certain.

But, they didn't have the flipper wall that always knocks you into the water the first time. And as already mentioned they didn't foam the course. And IIRC in previous episodes they poured paint on the contestants while they were trying to go over the belly-buster bars which made the bars super slippery. And they weren't spraying paint in their faces or firing water cannons at them like they have before.

So I think a good case can be made that the course was on the easy end of the range.

True dat. I loved that tank top she wore during Tuesday night's episode.
post #287 of 586
Can't wait to watch tonight's episode!!! Stupid work...
post #288 of 586
Tonight was a letdown after the last one, unfortunately. Last episode sort of set a standard, imo.
post #289 of 586
Yeah, What a fail... Jill though, was all WIN.
post #290 of 586
Wow, Jill is stunningly beautiful, she has really changed this season. Something about her looks different. Very attractive woman and one of the highlights of the show for me.
post #291 of 586
For all you Jill lovers(myself included), I saw a promo for the Kilborn report saying they are going to have Jill on the show and talk about being on a show with "rubber balls". I saw this last night, so I'm assuming that it'll be on today's show, whenever it's on for your local FOX affiliate.
post #292 of 586
Thanks AK.

This show kills me... Get to Jill already!

Edit: And... FAIL.
post #293 of 586
All you people do is talk about Jill, yes she looked yummy last night.

Which isn't what Wipeout is about. All you horn-dogs need to sign up for playboy channel and keep the discussions on the wipeouts!

I swear, you all sound like a bunch of horny 15 year olds! No other thread is this bad.

Yeah, right.

For all horn-dogs, here's a thread (with TONS of pics) for you!

Thank goodness we have the self-appointed-morality-police to keep this thread solely on discussion of wipeouts ....

BTW - to quote John Locke ... "DON'T TELL ME WHAT I CAN'T DO!"

Sooo ... to that end ... Jill was SMOKIN hot this week!!
post #297 of 586
I am sure Vipfreak is going to like this! Wipeout is now on with new episodes every Thursday and Tuesday! This Tuesday's is a repeat but Thursday is new! That is exciting. ABC was going to show Shark Tank but took it off for some apparent reason. More thrills and spills 3x a week! With another repeat on Saturday's.
post #298 of 586
I'm not quite sure I follow your post. I've looked at the official Wipeout site, IMDB, epguides.com, and they all say different things. I did notice however that my wannabe DVR recorded a rerun over the weekend.
post #299 of 586
No, It is kind of official. Wipeout is on Thursdays for the next 2-3 weeks and then it will go back to just Tuesday's. Saturday's they show a season 2 repeat in the afternoon and a season 3 repeat at night. Like I said, ABC pulled Shark Tank because that was gonna take Wipeout's spot on Thursdays but I don't know what happened there. Now just expect 2x the Wipeouts for the next 2-3 weeks!
post #300 of 586
I think they want Wipeout as a lead into Rookie Blue to get some eyeballs on that show.
