PostSubject: Perfect Weapon on History   Fri Oct 03, 2008 2:25 pm

Does anyone watch Perfect Weapon?

Last night's episode, "Battle Blades", tested the sword against the poleaxe. There are problems with their methods (e.g., in the accuracy test, each weapon was tested by a different guy instead of having the same guy test both), but the show is up my alley.

The interesting thing about this episode was when the weapons were used against a hanging pig carcass. The sword, wielded two-handed, simply cleaved through the shoulder and upper torso of the pig in a single blow, cutting through bone and everything else. Truly a frightening wound. Ghastly, really.

Apparent schedule:

Sundays at 6 PM
Mondays at 5 PM
Thursdays at 6 PM (and possibly at 2 PM and 9 PM)

PostSubject: i saw one   Wed Oct 29, 2008 10:52 am

I saw part of the one on the war hammer vs the morningstar/flail.

I would like to see more of them but keep missing it due to it being key cartoon times for the kids. I should get a PVR but I'm trying to reject consumer urges.

Maybe I should just start downloading from bit torent or some such site.

I'd like to see that episode. Did they mention that flail weapons wrap around the defender's shield or parrying weapon? I wonder if it's true or significant because wouldn't the defender adjust accordingly?
