I watch RAW every week unless I'm working Monday night (which is rare), and I keep up on SmackDown whenever I can, but over the past month or two I've been quite regularly watching Superstars.

It's nice to be able to see the midcarders and lower-midcarders, and what they can do. Guys like Zack Ryder, Drew McIntyre, Trent Barreta, Santino Marella, Tyson Kidd and so on have been impressing me of late.

They've been building Brodus Clay up with three weeks' worth of domination against jobbers, making me wonder when they'll put him back on the main shows. (The jobber matches don't make for particularly compelling television, but the guy is powerful, and fast for a big guy-- he reminds me of Umaga).

They've even had guys like Sheamus, Wade Barrett, John Morrison and R-Truth on the program lately.

Basically, Superstars is a good 40-minute weekly dose of good wrestling action, so I'm wondering... who else has been watching it on here, and what are your opinions?

    Please check back again later.
I watched it quite often when we COULD get it (when it was on WGN, which is on my cable system) but not anymore...it's not on any TV channel I know of here in Canada.

If there's a good match I read about on the spoilers, I'll check it out using less conventional means.

Can't get it on YouTube or Hulu either in Canada, Oliver? What a drag.

When I see "Superstars" at live shows, I enjoy it. I would watch it, if it were readily available in the ways that I watch shows. However, doesn't seem to be ...

1) I want to watch on the big TV. Watching on my computer does not hack it.

2) I'm accustomed to TiVo-ing everything, & so having it waiting for me. I've gotten too lazy to have to remember to go seek something like that out.

3) Zack Ryder wants me to be able to find his stuff. If I do think to, I can get to YouTube (& a few other OnDemand kinds of things) via the TiVo interface. However, "WWE Superstars" is a sucky name to search for on that "scroll to each character" kind of search interface. It's a lot to type, & being non-unique, one gets extraneous hits. (Zack Ryder is easier to search for, gets readily to the "LongIslandIcedZ" channel.) And when I do find Superstars episodes on the TiVo/YouTube interface, they're not well organised: no date stamps, no episode numbers. If Zack Ryder can get this right, I would think WWE could.

If I'm missing some better way to get to Superstars, I'd love to be enlightened!! (If that really is as good as it gets, it sure doesn't seem like WWE's making much effort to make this available to me.)

Hulu, from what I remember, isn't available to Canadians. I also remember WWE's Youtube channel also being unfriendly to us, too.

There IS a "show link" on YouTube. It's http://www.youtube.com/show/wwesuperstars?s=3

Should we start threads containing the embedded episodes?

Would you reply to them with your thoughts on the show if we did?

Hmm, if TiVo can't provide the full functionality of Youtube such that one cannot subscribe to "show links" and TiVo can't be bothered with a decent search engine for Youtube users then I don't place blame on Youtube or WWE.

I absolutely would post my thoughts on the show, and thanks for starting a thread this week.

Being Canadian, Superstars is too much of a pain to bother (have to wait til non-WWE, HD upload on YouTube) unless I hear Kaitlyn had a match, but I did just sit down in front of my TV and watch (by watch I mean pay attention, not have on while I'm on the PC) almost all of NXT. New Yoshi v Kidd, DB/Maxine/AJ and William fucking Regal being awesome as all hell? Yes please.

Really? The Deer Hunter, huh? So, what's next for Joanie? Is she going to move to Vietnam and play Russian Rouletter for money? What the hell did she say? Deer Hunter's a classic (a long one). And why would they get her to do the promo?
