So, it doesn't look like there's a thread for this show, but I'm hoping there's some fans.
What does everyone think of this season? There's been some awesome weapons and challenges. It seems like there's a lot fewer military guys this time
around. I don't mind the ex-military folks, but after last season when they all kind of grouped together and looked down on legitimately good
shooters like Jay Lim and Jamie (granted, Jamie was Navy, but they hated him for whatever reason) I'm glad they're mixing it up.
Who do you want to win? One of the things I like about Top Shot is the majority of the contestants seem like good people. There's a few jerks every
season who I don't want to win and as long as they don't I'm good with the outcome. This season, as long as Jake doesn't win everything's peachy
for me. It'd be nice to see Big Mike take him out in an elimination challenge though.
If you've never watched Top Shot, you should check it out. Basically, they get a bunch of marksman from different background, with different
proficiencies and divide them up into two teams. Each week there's a team challenge with different weapons and maybe some physical challenges as
well. Whichever team loses the challenge has to vote for two people who will face each other in an elimination challenge. Whoever loses the
elimination challenge gets sent home. The weapons aren't always guns. You'll see bows, slingshots, tomahawks, throwing knives, blowguns and
It's awesome because for the most part the show is entirely about skill. There's nothing subjective about it. Cooking, singing and fashion contests
have a lot of opinion and personal taste involved. With Top Shot it comes down to whether or not someone can hit a target. It's also great to see a
show where the contestants are almost always supportive of each other, even if they're one different teams. Sometimes, you can see people from
opposing sides practicing for a challenge with each other. Eliminations usually end with brotherly hugs and handshakes. When a contestant loses,
they're never angry.
The first two seasons are on Netflix instant and the third season is running on the History channel, though the season is nearing the end.
