I wish they went a little heavier on the technical details and a little lighter on the very rigid and unnatural sounding "catchphrases" like "It will cut/kill"

the ballistic dummies head flying off in the Sica Sword episode was immensely gratifying.

I know right? I like a bunch of TV shows, but this is the only one I get excited to watch.

I am a little disappointed as Episode 3, the Sica Sword, was the first episode I didn't get the winner right. I would have liked to see a final judge discussion about the actual deciding factors. I'm not buying Frank's Sica did better in the kill test as the real reason. But I still love this show.

I'm watching S05E08, the Polish karabela episode. I have never seen so much bad luck in one episode.
