Sorry about poor quality but it's important to cut off all other parts of the show. There was no need to justify this.
I'm in a public place and have embarrassed myself by laughing.
Video games seem to have more consideration of reality than this show does.
From reading the comments, it seems that people actually watch this show and care about it. That's probably the most surprising thing I'll learn all week.
I can't imagine a world in which that wouldn't be the best thing to watch.

I love how the pirate took a morning star to the head and kept fighting, and how many times did the knight get shot in the chest.
I could almost see the numbers floating in the air above the knight when the bomb hit.
|Rape Van Winkle |
I was one starring this in my head for 2 minutes 25 seconds. 2:26 I expected a kiss. 2:27: five stars.
So, the point of this show is that they dramatize a retarded fight between two things and then make up a winner?
Rape Van Winkle
They test the effectiveness of the weapons and tactics of each fighter; in both a "labratory" setting, and against the defenses of each fighter. Then they run a stochastic model 1000 times, and dramatize what they've determined to be the most likely outcome.
They're hardware freaks, and they look at nothing else. In the viking versus samurai episode, they're analysis came down to WELL HE HAS A SWORD OH YEAH BUT HE HAS AN AXE, never mind that one was a professional soldier with formations and tactics, and the other was a part-time thug with a boat and a drinking problem.
I could give two shits about Japan. The point is the people responsible for Deadliest Warrior are retards.
Oh boy! Can they do a tag team match with a Polish hussar and a Japanese warrior monk next?

This is my first experience of this show. There's more, right? And it's all this stupid?
Rape Van Winkle
Viking v. Samurai was the first one I watched all the way through. It wasn't bad.
I haven't made it through more than ten minutes of any other episode.
Man, the reason they only did eight or nine episodes of this was because they realized the fucking Mongols would throw down on EVERYONE. Including the Taliban and the Spetnaz.

I like how the bomb knocked the knight off the horse and wounded him, and yet the horse is standing there untouched.

This is a real show? They need Shao Kahn refereeing. Excellent! Fatality!
EPISODE CREATION AGENDA:
Step 1: Choose combatants
Step 2: Put arbitrary data into a microsoft excel spreadsheet (a la Weird Science)
Step 3: MAGIC!
No but seriously this show is crap. It sounds cool. The idea is awesome. The arbitrary decisions they render make my beard itch with anger.
My favorite part about the fight simulations is that the combatants use all of the weapons that they would have been known to use on occasion, but each one only gets used once.
There is something sort of engaging about watching a human-shaped Jello mold with an embedded skeleton get smashed by shields and morningstars. It's a show I can't watch more than about 8 minutes of, but that gets landed on while my wife and I look for other things to watch.
The "William Wallace vs. Shaka Zulu" one is particularly ridiculous, as there's a rather pronounced subtext to both the Scottish guys and the African-American guys who are convinced that their guy would win the fight.

Knight vs. Jew
He had five guns?
