BBC’s “Tumble” not horrible

Full Twist:

BBC’s gymnastics reality TV show “Tumble” debuted …

For the last couple of months we have been quite hesitant about what way the production would go. The verdict is in, we are pleasantly surprised.

Don’t get us wrong, we are not committing ourselves booking a slot in front of the television every Saturday for the next 6 weeks but surprisingly “Tumble” worked. …
