    Order your delivery pizza early, instruct the wife to wear frumpy, loose fitting non-arousal intended clothing and threaten the children with corporal punishment if they make any sound louder than a muted hissing of passing gas... TOP SHOT IS ON TONIGHT!

    Unless you've been living in a cave even more remote than the one that houses Osama Bin Laden you know that the long awaited transition from team competition to individual accomplishment starts with this episode.

    The tension and anticipation couldn't be greater if your daughter walked into the room with an EPT pregnancy test and announced her need to talk to you. The time has come to see which or our 'experts' can rise to the occasion and perform with guns and weapons alien to their normal comfort level

    Will Denny surge to the lead with the help of a previously unannounced mounted horse competition and if so will he excuse his miserable performance because the horse was not the same color he normally rides?

    Will the lone female competitor's performance be diminished by intestinal cramps or will she, in a PMS rage slaughter the other competitors and entire production crew?

    Tune in and see it live, (on tape).

    Part of tonight's competition involves knife throwing. Based on previous weeks performances many television critics and reviewers have expressed their disbelief that the contestants would actually be allowed to hold sharp objects but apparently contract obligations necessitated this obviously dangerous and risky endeavor. It is reported that additional ambulances and medical personnel were on hand for this segment.

    It should be noted that much like the trick shot episode where the consensus of opinion seems to be that the shots are really not that difficult, (there was at least one dissenter as I recall. :whistling:), knife throwing is not difficult. Every major black powder competition has both knife and tomahawk throwing as part of the event. The secret is nothing more than walking off your distance from the throwing board to the point at which you will throw. Your normal throwing distance produces one complete revolution, doubling the distance produces two revolutions. Velocity and strength of throw is not an advantage and usually results in decreased accuracy. For you newbs out there, it is impossible to double charge a knife or tomahawk.

    So, settle back, reach up and pull those safety belts tight one more time... BOOGITY, BOOGITY, BOOGITY... LEYS WATCH TOP SHOT BOYS!

    (I wonder if there's anything else on instead?)

    I'm watching "Good Guys Wear Black". Chuck is kicking some major butt. Then I'll watch the best cop show ever, Barney Miller.

    It's going to be a sucky episode from the looks of the previews. Knifes and sling shots.

    Just as a combat troop knows his family needs him he understands his fellow troopers need him more; in this case Tara understood her family needed her more than her team.

    From the perspective of one who no longer has parents I agree with her decision and personally would not begrudge her a spot on season two... if it lasts that long.

    I saw that poll, and most wanted Peter to go? What was up with that? Denny performed terribly at pretty much everything, he should have gone home 2 episodes ago (the .45Colt shooting gallery).

    "Well, if I was smart, I would have fired some live ammo before I came".

    LOL WUT ?

    But last week's promo was deceiving... I thought that the team to individual competition started this week (apparently Jack did too, see his OP).

    Oh well... they weed out 3 next week, leaving 4 for the last episode. So 1-per week until the last 2 weeks, and they weed out 6 in 2 weeks. Weird way to do things.

    It popped up on the screen just before the elimination challenge.

    Just before the challenge. I went back and looked

    "Who should go home?
    64% Voted for Pete
    36% Voted for Denny

    Unbelievable.

    But that just means the shows a success because most the people watching it are idiots. The poll proves it.

    ALSO, Did you notice Denny practiced with a slingshot before the show started. He picks up a slingshot for practice but not a gun. Jeez.

    So do I.. I was actually surprised they didn't send him to be eliminated.


    I agree... it's good to be there for the team, but in the end, this is a game, not combat, and she needed to be home. If there's a 2nd season, I definitely think she should be given a shot.

    Just wondering where the poll was, so that people could vote? I don’t remember anything that said where too go too vote. Most of the time I record the show and watch latter. Just so I don’t have too listen too the commercials. So it could be very possible that I missed where too go too vote.

    Yeah, I missed the "go here to vote" notice, but did see the poll pop up.

    Denny might be a "great guy", but not having shot live ammo in 10 years? Shame on the casting producers for even selecting this guy. It's obvious to me that they picked "characters" over actual shooters. Okay, they did get *some* real shooters, but that should have been the focus, not the drama.
