    Stupid rules becuase they are so subjective. And if you are busy concentrating on judging, how can you pay attention to the audience being depressed or confused.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    Could someone suggest to me which programs of the past might be considered not "understandable" and not "uplifting"?

    I'd prefer last season's program for reference, but would be fine with older programs.

    Perhaps they will be adding a psychologist to the technical panel.

    I think anything that made me erect, morally or any other way should get bonus points. Ladies with too much nudity would not do this. Men on the other hand. Wait it's ice... shrinkage.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    They will put voting machines at each seat in the audience , who will vote whether they understood the program or not. LMAO
