Netflix Challenge Day 27 - Deadliest Warrior

This series surveys military might across the millennia by staging showdowns between a Viking and a samurai, a SEAL and an Israeli commando, and more.

Deadliest Warrior pits 2 legendary combatants against one another. They could be a group (SAS/SWAT) or an individual (WilliamWallace/Shaka Zulu). All their weapons are tested and experts are brought in to help with the testing. Ballistic gel and fake bone are used to test the lethality of the blunt and bladed weapons where as the ranged weapons (guns/bows) are used outside on the range. They then get all the date and run it through a computer program 1000 times to find out who will be the Deadliest Warrior.

One episode featuring I.R.A. vs. Taliban caused a bit of controversy here in the UK and I think that episode was not shown during the first run of the series.

Now on Netflix they only have series 1 & 2 and for some reason don't have series 3..........the third series has my favourite episode, Zombies vs. Vampires! But it is safe to say that the outcome of that episode annoyed me just a little bit.

This show is like Marmite, you either love it or hate it, no grey area what so ever. I personally love it but my other half Emily hates it with a passion so it is safe to say that this show is aimed at males.
