If you know what it is. I think it was cancelled. Basically I liked some of the episodes, but hated the others.

Pretty good.

What's happening with Season 3?

They tend to get it right, but I wish it was Discovery Channel, Mythbuster style, because they it would be less about being "Cool", and more about being scientific.

Honestly, it is a fun watch, but the reality is there are way to many factors that go into comparing 2 warriors from different parts of the world and pitting them against each other. While, like I said, it is fun to watch, you should take the results with a grain of sand.

The majority of their viewers were too lazy to be angered. As of now he show seems cancelled due to expenses.

The computer program irritates me. They basically run simulations of each group using a certain weapon versus a certain weapon and take a statistical average.

What that means is that if, say, Ninjas have a weapon that is only meant to obscure vision (like throwing glass in your eyes), the computer will pit a ninja against whoever, and some of the simulations would consist of "Viking with sword versus ninja with glass."

Basically, it ignores the dynamics of fighting and bases itself on the weaponary.

Did anyone else hear that Robert Daly who was the computer guy lied about service in the green berets and resigned from the show last October? I'm looking forward to S4 though, Mack's a good host.

Yeah, and better yet, he's ACTUALLY special forces.

It'll be like Future weapons, but better!

That's awesome, do you have any suggestions for a particular book?

It's really big, but I suggest "The Campaigns of Napoleon" by David Chandler. Definitely the magnum opus of his work.

First, it was Navy SEALs vs. Israeli Commandos.

And second, Navy SEALs kick @$$......especially against North Koreas crap soldiers.....

Sorry, but I could probably beat them. North Korea pretty much sucks at everything.

Actually many Americans were upset when the Green Berets lost. When that happened, American bias started.

That show ticked me off when they did the championship episode.

The knight was originally knocked out by the pirate's blunderbuss. But when they compared pre-gun to post-gun, they didn't give the knight a chance.

Interesting show though, pretty cool to see things that way.

As far as I understand, this is how it works.

It does still have shortcomings. I mean, a ninja would never go into open combat against a Spartan or whatever. It would only attack from ambush with huge advantage.

Yeah, to be honest ninjas sucked at actually fighting, they were just good at ambushing people, and seeming to be more dangerous than they were.
