Deadliest Warrior

Posted: October 1, 2011 in TV

For the last 2 weeks I’ve been watching a TV-show called Deadliest Warrior.

The core idea of this show is freaking genius! They take two warriors from different eras and locations (e. g. Spartan vs. ninja, German SS vs. Vietcong, viking vs. samurai, etc) and try to match them, by comparing their weapons and tactics, to determine who would win a fight if they would have met in reality. To determine which warrior is the deadliest, they invite professional historians, weapon and combat experts, martial artists, they run different tests, examine different aspects of each warrior’s ways and so on. Everything is done in Myth Busters style, which makes this show so awesome!

At the end of each episode, they use professional actors to recreate a battle between two people from different eras, using results obtained from all the tests to simulate what could have happen if these two warriors were actually fighting against each other.

This show is so freaking entertaining to watch! (I wouldn’t take it too seriously, though; they often sacrifice realism for the sake of entertainment)

I just finished watching the second season. Will probably download the third one after my final exams.

I would recommend this show to anyone who likes Myth Busters. Torrent it now!
