It's the season finale! The end of American Ninja Warrior 9 has arrived and William breaks down Stage 2, Stage 3, and the Final Stage. After a mostly exciting season, surely they can't possibly find a way to mess this up!

...Right?

Las Vegas Stage 1, Part 2 - American Ninja Warrior 9 Review

It's (still) finally here! The second half of Stage 1 has aired and William has thoughts about YouTube, Facebook, wrestling, and occasionally some Ninja Warrior stuff! Who knows what will happen!

Also, did you hear that Kacy was retiring?! Why didn't ANW tell us this fact every waking moment the show was airing? How else would I know it was going to happen?

Denver Finals - American Ninja Warrior 9 Review

It's the final regional finals course! And the Wedge is back! Those guys are so screwed! Join William as he talks about ninjas like Ian Dory, Brian Arnold (and his nose), Megan Martin, and Lorin Ball. Also, is it really appropriate for an obstacle to be sponsored?

Also, Ian Dory makes great faces while on the Wedge, you should watch his run solely for that.

Kansas City Finals - American Ninja Warrior 9 Review

So. Kansas City. That happened. I guess we should discuss what went down. You know, it's very important to talk about these things.

You know, sometimes these things happen. Sometimes the Broken Pipes prove to be a challenging obstacle. Sometimes people make mistakes on the Iron Maiden. And sometimes people just have difficulty cranking it.

...up. Cranking It Up. That's what I meant.

Oh yea, there were no finishers this episode. Oh well. No big deal.

Cleveland Finals - American Ninja Warrior 9 Review

It's the Cleveland Finals! With Jesse Labreck! And Jamie Rahn! And Najee Richardson! And Joe Moravsky! And a terrible f****** obstacle that ruined the whole thing!

I'm getting impatient with ANW. What should have been a great episode on paper left me confused and bored. ANW needs a change and it needs to come quickly.

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?

Denver Qualifiers - American Ninja Warrior 9 Review

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

Join William as he discusses the many issues he had with the course, the handful of shocking eliminations, and why sometimes seven isn't a lucky number.
