why we stopped watching this show
15 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, let me say that I think revisionist historians and their ilk are some of the worst criminals on the face of the earth. Anyone who contributes to anything related to revising historically known facts are contributors to those who would lie about history. It is bad because it causes all sorts of problems that we won't get into here.

These guys need an archaeological historian in a major way. we stopped watching after the samurai vs spartan thing because there is a reason for the progression from bronze to iron to steel in history. when you find something new that is better, one stops using the older inferior thing............simply, when bronze weapons are used against the finest steel weapons ever produced, the bronze weapons snap like twigs .......we know, we tried it.

The other suspicious thing about that particular travesty was the "Japanese" far as we could find, he was born in England and lives and works in Canada.........we found no evidence that he has any martial arts training or that he has any education in the history or sciences of ancient weaponry.......oh wait, he did study dancing in Japan.........not my idea of an expert suited to the task ..........we didn't actually care for his "technique" with the katana especially's a sword, not a club or a baseball bat............and the most glaring error in the chosen weaponry had to be......naginata instead of the YARI, an amazing spear used by the samurai right up to the Edo period...........the naginata being more the weapon of priests, women, very under trained troops shanghaied from farms and oh yes, Kabuki dancers.

The naginata was not very popular with the samurai and the YARI would have been a more realistic choice but we can only guess why they didn't want to try a carbon steel straight blade with edges like razor blades, made with the same steel as a katana against an (LOL) animal hide shield with a bronze covering (like a hot knife through butter, perhaps?)

All in all, we can't begin to tell you how many, from a historical standpoint, gross errors and mistakes these guys have made but we can tell you to PLEASE don't use any thing they say in school.......if you do, speaking for those that may grade you, you will fail.

These are just a few of the reasons we no longer watch this foolish cartoon of a show...........we won't even get into how foolish the ninja/viking thing was as well, among other oblique fantasies these people have foisted upon us.
