So, I just watched Lucha Underground Season 2 Episode 1. Of course before that I had watched the Season 1 Recap, just to to know the major characters of the show. It was my first time watching anything lucha related and I really wanted to give my thoughts on the show. So, here we go. This might be a little be messy, because I'm not good at arranging my thoughts very well. Things I didn't like Since it was my first time watching lucha wrestling, sometimes the action in the ring felt weird to me. Lots of kicks and lots of jumping. The flying spots were great, some moves I hadn't seen before. What I didn't like about the in-ring action, was mainly the offesnse. The kicks sometimes didn't feel that realistic, they looked kinda fake and some spots didn't look as devastating as they would look on WWE for example. I don't know why I had this impression, maybe it's the camera angle, maybe it's beacuse the camera is doing so many close ups in the wrestlers and their moves get exposed, I don't know. It's just that WWE can make the in-ring action more realistic to me, than it seemed in that episode. Things I liked I really like how they are making it seem like a TV series and not just as a standard wrestling series. TV series are ruling right now with shows like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad getting so many great reviews. It was a nice touch and I believe it really tells the story better than WWE's segments in the ring or backstage interviews, which one might say are outdated. Sure promos are nice, since it's a way to see how the crowd reacts to a wrestler, but those movie-like segments also make the show somewhat special and really build the characters that are portrayed on TV. When I watch a TV show, I want it be out of this world, like a TV show. I want the characters to captivate me. I think that's WWE's problem nowadays. No characters, no backstories. The way the camera moves during in the ring action was something different, but I'm 50-50 on it. I don't think that there's a need for it to move so much and do so many close ups. I liked how the entire night was placed around the main championship, the Lucha Underground Championship, which is equivalent to a World Championship. That should be the main focus of every wrestling shows. Every superstar should have their eyes set on the top prize every time of the year. Something the WWE rarely forgets and seems to remember only during Wrestlemania season. The main event was nice. Mil Muertes beating that chick was a nice way to give him heat. Plus the hero comes out and makes the save. Then the thing that cought off guard was Pentagon coming out and attack the champion under a lot of cheers. I thought he was a heel? But as I said, every wrestler should gun for the top prize. Various thoughts and questions The space between the crowd and the ring is way too small. Also there are some stairs there and if anyone takes a suicide dive and land on those stairs it could even mean the end of his life. Do women compete with men? Or was an one-night thing? Is Lucha Undergorund its own company, or are they under a certain other company and that's just the show's name? Also do they appear in other shows like PPV or only in the LU show? That was all. What is your take on LU?
