Siegfried & Roy special
I posted this to an exotic feline mailing list I'm on, but I thought I'd share it with my LJ audience and see what comment anyone might have.
I'm surprised there hasn't been any discussion of the Siegfried and Roy special. I watched it last night. I thought it was padded with a disapppointing amount of fluff, as though they didn't have enough real material and they were desperately trying to fill the hour, but there was definitely stuff I wanted to see.

What really bothers me is that they actually had Roy saying that he had the stroke first and then Montecore pulled him off the stage, Siegfried saying that if Montecore had meant to hurt Roy, Roy would have been dead "in two seconds", and even Roy saying "he [Montecore] saved my life", yet outside of those brief bits, the message was still that the tiger attacked Roy. Roy has no ill will toward Montecore, but the show's producers apparently don't want the country to feel that way.
