If that doesn't get your testosterone flowing then you need to keep watching Lifetime & Oxygen.

Very good to watch. I found it immensely entertaining.

Other stuff gets my testosterone flowing but this series looks like it's going to be fun. The "science" is worth a look plus the dramatization at the end factoring tin the computer results. I was pulling for the gladiator, even though they were slaves, while the Apache was a "free" member of his society.

Watched this one last night. Discipline vs. rage???? Samuari wins. Lots of fun and some science/history.

I enjoyed it. So far, Europeans aren't doing so well. Check out the movie, The Bushido Blade (1981)

A US Marine officer vs. Samuri in the 1850s.

This is not exactly the rocket science they make it out to be. Let's see, armor and shield trumps no armor or shield, unless you have a pistol...The way this is headed, my money is on the guy in the Tank.

W/o the commercials and the hype and recaps after the commercials the show would be 25 minutes. At first I was offended by the guys laughing at the battle damage to the gel dummies and dead meat but I think I'd be doing the same if I was there.

Some old armor breast plates can be found with armorer's "proof" marks from a firearm to show that the piece would deflect a bullet.
