Lack of enthusiasm

I've seen Aagaard's DVD "Attacking Chess", and partly read some of his books and it's always been very interesting and entertaining. However, this DVD is different in a sense that now he sits there like he's just executing his job ("I'm getting paid to give these lectures, otherwise I wouldn't be bothered").

Note: in 2004 his rating was in a slump (about 2370), while at the moment it's 2470. Still, taking in account that he's a Lion (Astrologically speaking), he should have thought a little about his fans, because it's pretty dull watching him like this...

4 stars purely for the content of this DVD (0 stars for Aagaard's performance)!
