Quoted:
Just watched this episode last night out of sheer boredom. In their usual idiocy, they said that the Zulu "Samburu" war club (made out of wood) was superior to the iron ball-and-chain of William Wallace's time. I'll grant them the win of the Zulu war axe over the war hammer due to its greater rangr, but c'mon - the whole show was so retarded as usual. Shields made of COWHIDE? Really?

I felt sorry for the two guys representing the Zulu interests. They had a great warrior tradition, but this was a non-contest.

Oh BTW - did I mention that William Wallace died in 1305, while the Zulu conflict with the British was in 1878?  The Zulu warrior was compared against the technology of people FIVE-HUNDRED AND SEVENTY years prior and still got their clocks cleaned.


Tis silly lad, think nothin of it

Cowhide shields and short spears don't fare well against mail and claymores.  Or flails, for that matter.

William Wallace > Spetsnaz

They fare even less well against Martini-Henrys.

Well, I mean, look at the guy.  Color film is very new in his land.  He had to artificially colorize his own portrait for his avatar.

I watched the Taliban vs. IRA episode recently.  That show is dildos.

I think this season they have Al Capone as an 'ultimate warrior'

Didn't the zulu use largely stone age weapons?  This brings back tp mind that thread about "Why the Zebra was never domesticated"

"Deadliest Warrior" is nothing more than a "Mighty Mouse vs. Superman"  scenario...over and over and over again. Seems kinda silly to me.

they need to do a chuck Norris vs Mr.T episode

They're supposed to put Aztec Jaguar warriors against African tribesman of some sort this season. I would love to see the damage one of those obsidian sword club things can do to something.

I want to see that "special operations" guy with the Sims gun fight William Wallace.


That would be kick ass.

People take this shit way too seriously. It's on Spike, it's entertainment, nothing more.

Saw a show where they used it on a side of beef! It nearly cut it in half!

Regardless of technical inferiority the Zulu had balls.

The only time I watched the show in its entirety was when a childhood buddy of mine was on it (the Knight episode).  The rest just make me go
