New Poker on TV: WSOP Europe

by , Jan 5, 2009 | 12:06 pm

OK, hmm, some new poker on TV coming in less than a month that I’m actually interested in Tivo-ing watching. ESPN’s first ever production of WSOP Europe. They’re playing 4/8 Hour-Limit episodes (with Reruns and a half-kill?) — promising a different feel-and-vibe, and introducing the mobile hole card-cam.

Alright, I like the sounds of it! Can’t wait to watch the eps with a hypercritical eye and then haphazardly tear apart the hard work of dozens, if not hundreds of people trying to give the whiners and moaners viewers Pokerati readers what they say they want in poker television.

Though I doubt WSOP Europe on TV will have quite the cultural impact of similar-length miniseries such as V, Shogun, and The Thornbirds … I suspect it can be equally as catching as From G’s to Gents.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video must be worth 1,000². Since ESPN is being cool with their vids, I certainly have no problem pimping their pimpage of tonight’s WSOP episode:

OK, I’m excited. If the Scotty Nguyen episodes did anything, they did make coverage of the action that’s already been covered a little more Must-See TV. Can’t wait to see what semi-real storyline they concoct!

My only dilemma now, because of timing overlap, is choosing between the World Series and watching the newest episode of From G’s to Gents, where they’re down to five players! Go Creepa!

UPDATE: Oh, right … and also the Republican National Convention. Tonight’s Politics after Dark stand-n-go lineup includes: George Bush, Laura Bush, Joe Lieberman, Fred Thompson, John Boehner, Michele Bachmann, Mike Duncan, and Jo Ann Davidson.

Hmm, tough call — but without Sarah Palin speaking tonight, I think Scotty Nguyen and Creepa have the edge.
