A great show
21 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really like this show. Right now I am recording every episode. They are showing some new shows and some of the old shows on the History Channel. I have not decided which host I like better. Keith Carradine did the old shows (12 in all, I think) and his brother David now does the hosting. I think he took over after the 12th show in 2004. Each show is on a specific subject about the old west and has titles like "Outlaw Tech", "Execution Tech", "Revenge Tech", "Brothel Tech" and "Freakshow Tech". They have "actors" doing little re-enactments and some are kind of bloody. I especially like the guests who give little insights and are dressed in full cowboy fare. The show is very informative and funny. The show is not only about cowboys in the old west but about many things like gold mining, trains, disasters, prostitution, and freak shows. The last show about freak shows showed how some freaks were "real" and some were out and out cons. One part on that show had me in stitches. They had a freak sideshow and in the back had a "Man Eating Chicken". Well guess what? After you paid your 2 bits to see it you went through a curtain and saw a man sitting at a table eating chicken. Get it? HA ha ha ha. The spectators wanted to beat the con artists up but they talked the spectators into telling their friends and getting them to come see the Man Eating Chicken. They were thrilled to feel like a part of the con. Another show about executions showed a man being hanged who was dropped too far and it snapped his head completely off. Ouch. Catch this when you can. It's great.
