I’m watching Rollergirls on A&E

It’s insane. Excerpt from Jonathan Storm’s review:

These women may take wiseacre aliases, dress outlandishly, and knock each other down as they skate insanely round and round a little oval, but they’re as real as a black eye after a barroom brawl. Their TV show sits you right down, documentary style, into the subculture and the genuine thrills and agony of the competition.

The game is no longer another choreographed performance like wrestling. This is not your daddy’s roller derby.
