When is it coming? I noticed that my DVR recorded some reruns which makes me hopeful that the second season is on the way

I sure hope not.

Why in the wrd would you say that. If you don't like it, just don't watch. The show has potential to give pool more exposure, and many people on here do like it. I think you have to be really pessimistic to hope something like this fails.

I can watch (endure) it if nothing else is on in that time slot.
I would describe the show as "Banger Friendly" and not to
be taken seriously by serious players in Real Pool Halls.

I agree with the last line but it's pool related TV how bad can it really be? Exactly. What other pool are you watching that's not on youtube? I watch it, quite entertaining actually.

I thought I read several months back that there
wouldn't be a season 2. I thought it was in one
of Mikey Frost's posts, but don't quote me on that
because I used to smoke a ton of weed and my
memory often sucks.

Because it seems the majority of people on this forum have become angry negative nits who if pool became popular again would have to find something else to ***** about. People like that think that non pool players are going to be interested in a show where they just play pool and there's not much else lol for ratings sake a show has to be well rounded to interest non pool players and pool players a like. I've never shot a gun or hunted but I watched duck dynasty every week because I liked the characters and it was funny.

It was an entertaining show I thought ... The resurgence of the game has to start some where. This is as good as any.

I enjoyed the show and watched every episode, but the producers really screwed up the finale. Why allow people who weren't part of the show to enter the tourney? If its TV, its about building a relationship with the characters. What a let down, having two non-cast members take 1st and 2nd place.

I watched the first season and thought it was alright. Any exposure for pool is good. I have Finnegan on facebook and lately all he can do is bad mouth Mike Dechaine and its just rude. Not just poking fun at him or anything. So honestly he seems like a crooked douche to me and I would rather not see him make anymore undeserved money from a 2nd season.

It basically stands nowhere. If it happens again I'd bet it's with young people that are way more scandalous than we were. I doubt it ever happens again though.

I hope it takes off. I wrote seasons 3-5 already.

Frostie gets fired from his day job and has to take a job with the Lipton tea company as a route driver, but then he comes up with a plan- leaves a set of bonus balls laying aroun the poolroom- and after everybody plays with his balls, he pretends he doesn't really notice.

Then a buncha stuff happens and he wins a lotta dollars and yells something about I PEE TEE
And it all comes full circle.

Jorge Rodriguez, came on the last episode as part of the expanded field, is playing in the tournament. Manny Stamatakis, very hands on owner, was running around bussing tables and making sure customers were happy. Finnegan was running the Calcutta. Ross Lacy was in the booth giving commentary. Gary O'Callaghan stopped by.

I agree I said long ago if you could follow Scotter and the gang you got a series like it or not I do the pit action is entertaining a lot of it is becausei it happens after hours when the main events are over and that's often when you get the who's who With even top players showing up , the list is endless , and the crowds are standing room only
The hustlers trying to paint this proper image for some unknow reason
Show the game what it is and u got a better chance

There's a lot of things they could do with the show. Heck it doesn't even need to be centered in NYC. They could follow Scooter, go to NOLA or do multiple locations. In my opinion they sold themselves pretty short by not continuing the series.

It's a "reality" show... with that comes the forced fake drama and situations..
'Will the hynotherapy help my game??..dundundun!' 'Will O'Callahan quit drinking to bring his game up?? dundundun!'

I'd rather see Big Head Mike and his crew go on the road, but IMO you couldn't have real pool happening with cameras and mics around.

That ending was a bit odd. Brought to mind Highlander 2 where it just randomly popped up, tossed out everything you knew from the first movie then was ignored totally in Highlander 3 like it never was made.

I watched it, was entertaining enough I suppose.

But the main point is, like a couple of people pointed out before. It involves pool in some way shape or form. Anything we can do to bring this great game more to the forefront of people's minds is a good thing for the sport in my opinion.

The only thing I find analogous to the hustlers is Tony Romo's situation with the Cowboys, people hated him until he was gone, then they loved him again once they win.

Bottom line is the time for support and the good words has passed. We'll all wonder what may have been if it had taken off. I still think another show will come out, but expect it to be much younger, sexier, and even worse pool. That's my prediction anyway.

Another example: Remember Bonus Ball? It was pilloried non-stop on AZ during it's season, then disappeared for months, and when it returned for a few days of playoffs, people heaped praise on it.

FWIW, I loved The Hustlers from start to finish… Great job.

Great Tony Romo analogy and very relevant here.

This show was really good. Sure there can be debates about the theme or story tangent lines, and what direction they should have gone. But the fact of the matter is that was a high quality production from a technical aspect. The pool play was fantastic, all real and full of drama.

Like you stated, another show will eventually come down the line, but it won't be anywhere close to the quality of The Hustlers, in terms of production and sport.

IMO, a better first season could not have been made. And with the experience under their belts, the production crew would have made a stellar second season.

Actualy I thought the production was the weakest link .. The Blair Witch project may have been the gateway to reality TV because it looked real life ,, nothing about the show looked real ,YouTube with scooter and the boys on camera phones catches it much better and is far more entertaining

Sean C Morgan - A team concept idea of 8 on 8...could be a fun thing...let's see if it works out...!
William Finnegan - The godfather of pool will be in this show. Get ready pool players across the country it's official get your teams ready for action.
Jayson Shaw - Not actors pool players
Shane Jackson - The one I was a part of also had roles. Not true reality of the struggle and grind.
Larry Phlegar - Lol, Shane, that one you are referring too was just a casting, I'm sure it will be covered nationally about the grind of players from all around the country when it's launched, this one here is about New York Pool Players and their lifestyles of competing locally against each other, this is a good thing here, it's going to open the doors for other shows in the future, but I will tell you that the one you are referring too is very close to launching, and then it's gonna be William Fennigan verses SHOWTIME on the National TV sets, Get Ready
