My main criticism is the fifteen minute breaks with terrible music and the wide angle camera that had lights pointing right into. From a technical perspective, that was just terrible. That wide angle party/crowd camera should have been set somewhere else. Granted I realize it was a packed patio and there likely weren't many other places it could be put without causing issues. But gah...that awful shot was something you learn NOT to do in the very basic of TV classes.Ditto the muted mic issues. I know all that stuff was likely rented, but they should have used tape and a sharpie to number each mic and to also number the faders on the mixer. That way you always know what mic is hot etc.I think ultimately the lack of people who knew how to actually put a TV-type broadcast on hurt it a lot.Instead of having a host at the table switch cameras and run mics, they should have had one dedicated person do it.Overall though it was very fun to see. I skipped out during the second fifteen minute break because it was late and whatever the hell "music" they were playing was just awful. I am way too old to appreciate it, I guess. XD

I laughed during one of the interviews, when the channel for some reason started playing the music again, and we couldn't hear anything, and people in chat we're saying,"wub wub wub wub wub wub wub wub"Mocking the music.

The chat was so terrible that I had it turned off.I did not like the constant mean comments I saw within the first two minutes or so--it reminded me of Trade Chat which I always leave at first opportunity.I have to wonder who picked that music though and thought it was a good idea. That is the sort of weird thing that has a small genre appeal and party music should appeal to everyone in my opinion.But I am old...and cranky because I was up most of the night watching. XD
