Daytona Beach Finals - American Ninja Warrior 9 Review

The Daytona Beach Finals are in the books, and one ninja sped his way to the finish line! We get introduced to some giant cubes that aren't actually cubes and witness how challenging (and potentially dangerous) the Elevator Climb is.

Also, Jessie Graff does the splits, Sean Darling-Hammond becomes the nicest guy ever, and a bunch of my favorites get fast forwarded again!

San Antonio Finals - American Ninja Warrior 9 Review

I hate the Hourglass Drop. It's a bad obstacle and I hate that ANW still insists on using it.

Anyway, it's now time to talk about the San Antonio Regional Finals of American Ninja Warrior, which featured a really cool obstacle called the Spinball Wizard. Shame we didn't get to see much of it. Oh well.

Anyway, this episode some great performances from Daniel Gil, Barclay Stocket, Karsten Williams, Thomas Stillings, and Brent Steffensen. And Kacy Catanzaro put on her best performance in years. Also, a miracle happened; Nicholas Coolridge actually got airtime!

Los Angeles Finals - American Ninja Warrior 9 Review

The regional finals have begun! And it started on a high note, no less! Join William as he discusses the Los Angeles regional finals featuring the debut of the Elevator Climb and the return of the Stair Hopper!

Also, Charlie Andrews uses the power of MIT on the course, Sean Bryan uses the power of God on the course, and Grant McCartney uses the power of dance on the course. However, not all of these methods were successful! Who's going to Vegas?

It's the final week of qualifiers! Unfortunately, the Denver Qualifiers ended the first rounds with a wet fart of a course.

Cleveland Qualifiers - American Ninja Warrior 9 Review

Okay, American Ninja Warrior. You got me. You win this time. I watched the Cleveland Qualifiers and I honestly enjoyed it more than most people expected me to. You know that one part? I liked it. I liked all of it.

So join me as I discuss Jessie LaBrek, Allyssa Beird, Mike Bernardo, Joe Moravsky, the Heartbreaker, weird editing mistakes, ANW Fantasy, and much more!

Kansas City Qualifiers - American Ninja Warrior 9 Review

The Kansas City Qualifiers have aired and William has some thoughts! Three new obstacles are introduced, but only two of them were any good. Lance Pekus finds redemption while Brandon Mears and Maggi Thorne put on some of their best performances to date.

Also, it was a good night for the Sasuke Maniacs Forum. Not only was the winner of the obstacle contest and SMF member (he designed Crank It Up) but two SMF members reached the top 30! Unfortunately, they didn't make TV this episode, but still! Go SMF!

Daytona Beach Qualifiers - American Ninja Warrior 9 Review

Episode 3 of American Ninja Warrior 9 has aired and this time the competitors ran the course on the Daytona International Speedway! Even though the course included the difficult and time consuming Rolling Thunder, one ninja* was able to zoom pass the competition!

Also, William discusses the awesome Wing Nuts, the questionable Rolling Pin, Jessie Graff's run, some devastating fails, and why you should tint your plexiglass. A lot to discuss in this one!

San Antonio Qualifiers - American Ninja Warrior 9 Review

The San Antonio qualifier has aired, featuring a bunch of local ninjas, including a few NBC never bothered to show us! William discusses the new Sky Hooks and discovers his biggest issue with the profile pieces.

Also, did you Kacy Catanzaro was on this episode? I feel like ANW never mentioned it to us. At least Barclay Stocket was given a chance to shine.

Let's Play Team Ninja Warrior Run

With Team Ninja Warrior now airing on the USA Network, William checks out the free Team Ninja Warrior browser game that was recently released called Team Ninja Warrior Run. The game is an endless runner that only requires one button. However, how much does it actually have to do with Team Ninja Warrior?
