his voice was OK but when a person is reading someone else's
stuff, it's acting. most people can't act their way out of a paper
bag, as they say. also acting needs a script. reading back someone's
exact words - especially someone from a different native land - almost
never ever works. no big deal, since he was sick as hell, it's not
like they try to do this each week.
i like nicky's delivery a whole lot, not to mention his experience.
i don't mind ralph at all, actually. maybe i am easy to please.
