This is more of what the History Channel should do
I'm a big fan of the Gunny. R. Lee Ermey is a funny guy and I was so happy to see him on the History Channel again. I still miss Mail Call, so Lock and Load was a great opportunity to enjoy Gunny blowing stuff up again.
The show is very informative and really interesting. Some episodes like the one on Rockets showed some very old technology and provided some really great historical information. There's a lot of history in weaponry going back centuries and this show really displayed a lot of that. Everything from ancient devices to tomorrow's latest technology. I learned a lot watching this series and was thoroughly entertained. I only wish there were more.
This is what the History Channel needs more of. I don't mean to complain, but it just seems most of their new programming isn't historical at all. I mean where is the history in Pawn Stars and Ax Men? I just don't get it. The WWII in HD was great and I'm really looking forward to America: The Story of Us. In between, though, they need more shows like this.
