    Anyone else addicted to this show? I just had to cringe when two guys in one episode both took nut shots.

    Not sure who I want to win yet, but the quarterfinals did start last night.

    Yeah, I've been watching.

    It's silly that they're not using shields, but it's entertaining. I'd like to see Josh and Rope as the final, but I'm not sure if the brackets would support that or not.

    First one wasn't a nut shot. It hit his thigh, and almost into the artery. The second one was definately a nut shot. The strange thing was, it was by the same guy.

    My ten year old son loves this show.He's learning a lot of new slang terms like "nutsack".

    I tried watching it with him a couple times but just lost interest in it.It's just too much of the same thing.The only good parts were when guys got knocked off their horses and did a face-plant on the ground.Then they'd open up the mask and their face would be all bloody.

    I don't think we get it here in Canada, is it anything like the Knights of Mayhem show?

    But that's how you joust though. Shields are for realzies fighting, not play fighting.

    History TV will be airing it soon.

    What did the one guy get kicked off the show for a week or two back? I missed the last few episodes.

    He punched a horse. The horse stepped on his foot and he felt the best way to get it off is to punch the horse in the head. So, they took him to the back, told him they had a zero tolerance towards that type of action, and he went off saying he doesn't think he did wrong and doesn't regret punching it.

    What a douche, he's lucky they only kicked him off the show.

    I watched the pilot episode. I did nothing but laugh my ass off at the stupidity of the whole thing... Jousting? Really? That's an actual sport? They're really picking at straws...

    LOL. But the worst part about it was that the guy was in his full suit of armor when he punched the horse in the head. So it wasn't a bare fist shot that the horse took.

    EDIT: Found a clip of it on youtube:

    Watched this for the 1st time last night & it was a lot better than I expected. I've always been a fan of this type of thing, and compare to the Ultimate Fighter (which I swear this is modeled after), nobody really seemed like dicks.
