I was conceding to Huh? to make the thread, but I guess I'll have a go at it.

In case you missed the newest episode of Deadliest Warrior on Tuesday, it was Saddam Hussein (and the Republican Guard) vs. Pol Pot (and the Khmer Rouge).

It was a surprisingly good episode. When I saw the previews for it, I thought it was going to be some absurd bs (i.e. i was hoping for hilarity to ensue), but it was possibly one of the best executed episodes of this season.

Saddam:
RGD5 grenade
RPK
Browning Hi Power*
Combat knife (looked a bit like a ka-bar, fixed blade)*

Pol Pot:
Some sort of Chinese stick grenade*
RPD*
TT33 (they listed it as 9mm...)
Some sort of machete like blade with a longish handle

(* got the edge)

The results: Saddam - 2828, Pol Pot - 2172

As far as weapons go, they were fairly matched up. Even though the Cambodian blade was bigger, they gave the edge to the combat knife, as it's much more capable of deep, penetrating wounds - as opposed to slashing. The RPD and RPK are virtually the same, except the RPD has a bigger magazine and weighs more, so it's got a bit of an edge. They gave the edge to the stick grenade because it had 50% more explosives, and the stick handle keeps it from rolling around too much. Lastly, the Hi Power got the edge because it had a much higher capacity.

I think this is the first episode where the 'x factors' played such an important role, which is something that I am very satisfied to see.

Basically, their reasoning was that since Saddam's Republican Guard was almost tailor made to prevent rebellions and fight militia and insurgents, Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge was exactly what they were meant to fight.

Now, the next episode...

THEODORE ROOSEVELT VERSUS T.E. LAWRENCE (OF ARABIA)

I'm so excited for this episode. Honestly, I don't know who I could choose. I may have to go with Lawrence, because he may have a Webley and a Vickers guns :| Lawrence has the technological advantage (they're using TR from his time in the Span.-Am. War just after the turn of the century, so he may have a bit of an edge. But again, they may just give it to TR because 1) it's an American centered show 2) everyone knows TR is the summit of bad assery and most people only know of Lawrence through Peter O'Toole.

Also, let's not forget (from wikipedia):

Quote:
There is considerable evidence that Lawrence was a masochist. In his description of the Dera'a beating, Lawrence wrote "a delicious warmth, probably sexual, was swelling through me", and also included a detailed description of the guards' whip in a style typical of masochists' writing.[44] In later life, Lawrence arranged to pay a military colleague to administer beatings to him,[31] and to be subjected to severe formal tests of fitness and stamina.[45]

...while it is commonly known knowledge that TR fucked the shit out of bears, just like his Vice President George Washington:

I watched the episode of the taliban vs the Irish guys ..yep already forgot who they were lol. The Irish won but it had to be the worst display of "testing" weapons I've ever seen in my life. When they fired the rpg I literally laughed at the 5ft back blast it had. Worst show I've ever seen lol.

I honestly view it like my roommate does WWE. It's like a man soap opera.

Yeah, it's a terrible show.

I've been able to stop using some of the most addicting drugs known to man, but I can't stop watching this show - no matter how bad it is :\

Saddam vs Pol Pot???
Are they fucking with us!?!?!?!?!??
Why not just have a patriotic episode where Patton, Teddy Roosevelt and Andrew Jackson square off against Hitler & Himmler with Lenin & Stalin thrown in for shits and kicks.

I stopped watching the show after season 1, but do they still have that doctor guy who examines wounds and offers the worst puns?

I'll give the new season a try!
And by the way, if you want "things getting fucked up with weapons", then check out the Canadian film Hobo With A Shotgun(starring Rutger Hauer, who was also in the awesome Blind Fury flic). The story of the movie is very trashy but that's because the film makers tried to make it as exploitative as possible. If you like films like Planet Terror and The Exterminator, then give the Hobo a try!
