Also you cut down on a bunch of crap weapons. I don't care about the ninja's black eggs or the someone's special forces spring loaded knife. If spike made that show it would rule the ratings.
    You obviously need to get into the tv business. Make this show happen.

    Spike would only air it if you somehow managed to jam some boobs into the equation.

    But you must admit, zombie killing+boobies is the perfect equation for any tv show.

    Shows need hosts (or hostess' as the case may be) don't they?

    Edit: Don't know if anyone has watched the Aftermath episodes they have on the website but they are kind of interesting because they answer questions posted to their website about each episode. This one has some interesting info on how their simulator works and how they decide who fights who.

    Still no explanation on why their tests are arbitrary and therefore useless and why it's not called "deadliest weapon".

    Because they have yet to develop the cloning technology/black magic necessary to resurrect a dead Spartan and a dead Samurai and have them fight to the death.
    They can, however, at least run some tests on their swords and ****.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    I wouldn't hate on this show so much if at least their methods were sound. Hell, I'd settle for just consistent.

    "Lets test the US Special Forces hand grenade ....in a pexiglass booth full of mannequins"...?...Well OK. It seems goofy but it's a start.

    "Now lets test the Spetznaz RDG-5 grenade, but not in a plexiglass booth like the US grenade lets put this one in a washing machine"....? Huh ? What is proved by doing that ? They did that kind of inconsistent crap all over the place.

    The worst was during Viking vs Samurai they tested the Samurai sword against chain mail and it didn't even scratch the dummy (or was it a pig carcass ?) and they went ahead with the rest of the show as if it didn't matter that one warriors weapons WERE USELESS against the other. To say nothing about the certain 50 pound weight disparity between those two. It was never factored in as even a possible advantage.

    They have yet IMHO to run any weapons tests worth a damn and whats worse is that those wielding them are also untested. Any slob of an animie fanboy can chop up a stationary unarmored gel torso or a hanging pig carcass and on this show that's what we see 99% of the time.

    The firearms demos are even worse. I fully understand that live fire demos are inherently dangerous and safety must come before scientific rigor but testing scoped sniper rifles from all of 80 yards away ?

    Which is exactly why it should be called "Deadliest Weapons".

    I think you have the wrong set of expectations for a show on Spike TV about who would win in a fistfight between a sea pirate and a knight.

    I know. This show sets back the Bullshido mission statement about 10 years tho. Guys like Ashida and Dillman are the ones coming up with the testing methods and judging the outcomes to fit their own ends.

    I should just skip it and watch "The Sideboob Hour" that airs afterwards
