    I wanted to watch that last night but I was tied up watching stuff off the DVR and forgot. It looked decent, but so do a lot of shows, only to let you down in the end. I'll set it up to record now while I'm thinking about it.

    Funny thing...I've known some professional jousters (yes, there is such a thing) and they're not built like tanks like these shows on TV portray. They guys I know are average-sized but they're tough as hell. Technique trumps brute strength in this sport.

    I haven't seen this series, yet - it's more Hulu fodder (along with the prepper show on NatGeo) when I have time.

    I think it looks good but it might get old like deadly catch

    The wife and I caught it last night. Not great, but also not bad. We will continue to watch it and see where it goes.

    I caught the last 10 minutes of the first episode during a replay; I pretty much caught the match. Seemed alright, kinda has me interested, I'll have to try and catch a whole episode before I fully judge.

    It seems like a decent show. I give all those competitors credit for having the guts to try it.

    The suits of armor look authentic but with a modern twist..... Awesome!
