[TV] Deadliest Warrior: Season One

16 May 2010 12:16 PM, PDT | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Ah, Spike TV, the male programming response to Lifetime. All killing, sex, and low-brow humor all the time. If you remember back to when Spike TV first got its start, it had little more in terms of content strategy beyond buying up the rights to the entire James Bond catalogue and broadcasting them 24/7. It may have made the holders of Ian Fleming’s estate ecstatic, but after about a month the channel was in dire need of something new. Gradually the channel began to produce its own content and eventually it got to the point where its unique content was marginally watchable, if you were bored or drunk on a Saturday. Deadliest Warrior represents the current pinnacle of the channel’s programming. It’s that great? No, but it’s perfectly aimed at the testosterone-infused audience thanks to the use of weapons and the wholly ridiculous nature of its concept. »
