    Deadliest Warrior is a guilty pleasure of mine. All larping and D&D style combat programming aside, is there anyone who doesn't pop a semi when they see a claymore chop off three artificial heads in one swing?

    Mother was watching it last night.
    "Oh look, Michael" she said from the lounge as I poured myself a glass of mil...err beer.
    "Your into this kind of thing."

    I walk into the livingroom and see four men getting way to excited about who would win, a Pirate or a Knight. I exsplained to her how pirates in general where terrible swordsmen, and in a one on one fight, a mounted knight would **** a pirate up.

    The show truley was tragic.

    That's because you can't appreciate art.

    I know what I like. That isn't it.

    Their warrior types seems to be categorized into a few categories (light and mobile, heavy and powerful, presicion, etc.). If you can accept the premise that the computer simulation isn't total crap (it is), then you could set it up like an elimination tournament, and come up with 'The Deadliest Warrior'. But no.

    Obviously there would have to be a modern age version separated out. Otherwise it would just be even more of a laugh (Green Beret vs. Pirate would be funny).

    Zing!

    Wouldn't that be better suited to MJ vs 12 year old TKD BB?

    That was one of the more legitimate shows, It was like metal versus sticks, if things are just based on weapon's how the hell is he suposed to beat some one, more then 5000 years more advanced then him? He had a fucking stone spear.

    More like, too late. There are still perverted Catholic priests who are alive and can serve as experts on the show. Who would be MJ's expert? Macaulay Culkin?
