Exclamation Full Metal Jousting series on tv!

Discovered this show will start in Feb. Might be interesting.
Here's what the website said in one area:
Quote:
HISTORY is bringing back the most dangerous collision sport in history and transforming it into a 21st-century event. But this is no Renaissance fair as the toughest riders in the nation face off in a bone-crushing competition for big money. It's as intense as it was 500 years ago, but with a twist: Traditional armor is replaced by modern suits of steel, while action is captured by high-speed cameras. Each episode features full-contact jousts in which jousters charge and collide at 30 miles an hour, and every joust is a test of courage and strength requiring nerves of steel. The last man standing takes home the cash as this extreme sport is reborn.

you can see more and a clip. Bloody, fast and dang dangerous! Wonder how many 'We won't sue you' papers they had to sign? :lol:

Sounds like a guy type show.

I've watched 3 episodes. If you like watching buff guys get knocked off of horses and splinters of lances breaking teeth and stuff its great! I'm getting a little bored with it. Probably will come back in a few episodes though the promo for next week says one of the guys gets sent to the hospital.

It is a very extreme sport. Interesting sort of. But, then I'm a fem so macho guy stuff isn't all that interesting.
