The 411: The Radicalz debuted in a big way and were already wrecking havoc which is awesome. The first half of the show was really good with good matches, the debut of the Radicalz, and the birth of the APA. The second half fell off a cliff minus the final segment and the Dudley Boyz/Hardy Boyz/ APA angle. This episode is well worth a watch but there's a ton of stuff I recommend you skip.
