Storyline

A maverick group of fighters compete for top honors in the most dangerous competition in history. Far from the contrivances of the Renaissance Fair, this is authentic, full-contact jousting, with two competitors on horses charging towards each other at 30 miles an hour. Gone is the traditional armor, replaced by state-of-the-art protective gear. Each week's episode features full-contact trials and preparations that will ultimately determine the champion-king of the joust. Written by History Channel

Excellent
23 July 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This is full on competitive jousting with proper medieval chivalric rules. Donning Tony Stark-esque Iron Man suits, the competitors spend the first part of the show going through training exercises and familiarising themselves with the intricate techniques required for accurate jousting. This competition certainly pulls no punches and the 8 run competition at the end is exhilarating to watch, as their mighty horses thunder down the course and lances are lowered.

Points are scored for a hit on the scoring plate located on the right shoulder, a broken lance and the satisfying unseating.

It is truly authentic and great to watch.
