I've seen posts here about board members behind on watching and catching up. A trip, sickness, work schedule...I get how those things happen. 10 weeks worth of shows? There is no better preparation for doing well on the show than watching faithfully. It should be a habit and not a chore.
This is an interesting point and one that I've been mulling over for a few hours. I was thinking if there was a scenario where cramming that many shows in a very short space of time would be beneficial.
The only scenario that I can come up with is someone consistently hitting $35k+ Coryats that wants to prepare for the rigors of possibly playing 5 games a day when they get on the show. Clearly, based on his play, this doesn't apply to Michael.
Other than that, I don't see the point of this, either.
I had not watched the show in well over a year prior to this.
I'd basically stopped watching as there was very little point, since they'll never let me on. Additionally, I *am* busier than you, and you, and you over there, and it just became very difficult to work the show in.
