The deadliest warrior has always been an up and down show for me but this episode made me realize why I haven't touched any of the new episodes. This episode was not only racist, but also biased and badly compared. Ming Warriors (14 century) vs. the Musketeer (17th century). Not only are they 300 years apart, the Chinese had much better/reliable weapon for their time. What bothered me most about the episode were the two comparisons that the musketeers had won. The first test was on RANGE but somehow a musket had won. It takes a minute to reload the thing and it isn't even good for 80 yards even with a SUPPORT BEAM!!. The third test was even worse. A flintlock like pistol that misfires 2/3 of the time beats the 3 shot genius of a invention made by the Chinese because they were testing for ARMOR PIERCING?? The musketeers were known to be light and mobile, so how would they be efficient wearing IRON armor? And obviously the Musketeer won in the end because the computer whiz was not very bright.
The ending was brilliant. French guy goes "Why won't you Chinese people go back to where you came from and start building walls. You're good at it aren't you?" REALLY????
