Is this what judo should look like?

I survived 60 secs but was looking at the clock from 45
I'm a drunk, we go to parties.

Lets hope it never does.Low level skills and many missed opportunities.
Is there a score for pulling the other blokes leg off?
Vid's like this should carry a warning..view if you want to waste your life!

Boring? Nah I didnt think so, it wasnt the most spectacular fight, but it was a very tactical fight. And one with a lot more action than we would see in the average tactical Judo fight (seeing all the competition videos here on the judoforum sometimes makes me very sad).

ETA: Just to be clear, I'm not talking about Dutch here.

There are plenty of ways to throw that don't land you in a lousy position at all ... and you know it.
I agree it was interesting, but I have a hard time getting over the whole bent over posture with both players locking horns.

There are those who are not impressed by watching judo and find it boring. There are those who find the same thing about BJJ. I find some BJJ matches boring. I find some judo matches boring. I find some MMA matches boring. Actually - I get annoyed when uneducated UFC fans boo two fighters when the fight is not exciting enough. If you want spectacle, excitement and entertainment - go watch pre-wrestling.
In final answer to the question, No - this is BJJ - therefore it does not represent what judo should look like.
