  1. Watched Forged in Fire on the History Channel this morning since I had nothing better to do, show is a rather interesting concept but a lot more fun to watch then other shows like it (similar concepts like Chopped and what not). Plus one of the episodes had Ilya from Man at Arms: Reforged on it (was interesting to watch him work by himself).

      XD, I watched a few eps of that for the same reason as well.

      I like how the challenges are set up to see if the smiths got the chops to continue by challenging them to make a blade out of random metal, put a handle on it, and see if it holds up. The last challenge they face is by far the best because the weapons they're asked to make are pretty neat (Ilya's was a shield with a spike, he won with his awesome rendition of it). I hope netflix gets a hold of the first season so I can marathon it because they only had three episodes from the current season on this morning.

      I saw a few eps of this and thought it was cool. I really miss Top Shot, especially when they got away from the stupid drama and got back to shooting. I'm also disappointed Full Metal Jousting never caught on after season 1. I'll have to try to catch up on this show, hopefully it doesn't get cancelled.

      Now that sounds pretty cool. Netflix needs to get some new series like this. I haven't seen a good show that deals with metal work since Junkyard Wars. Another show netflix still doesn't have that I'd watch the hell out of. I've still only seen one episode of Top Shot, but I never seem to find it on tv or playing reruns on any channel. x_x
