Are any of you other maniacs watching this season? I've never really watched more than an episode or two, but it has really sucked me in this year. There have been some new records set and you find yourself cheering for the people as they try to accomplish some pretty amazing physical feats. I don't want to be a spoiler, so I'll leave those discussions to the comments sections.
One of the things I've found quite interesting is the mental aspect also. Much like the 4 minute mile or double backflip on a motocross bike, certain obstacles seem impossible but as soon as one person overcomes it people seem to accept it can be done and follow in droves.
So all that said, it's a pretty interesting show...anyone else checked it out?
