behind the scenes @ deadliest warrior

hi all!

i know, i know.  this place is becoming deadliest warrior central.  deal with it!

i meant to do this like, way long ago but havent had a chance to.  so remember the yakuza vs mafia episode of ‘deadliest warrior?  remember the tasty angry asian guy demonstrating the yakuza’s weapons and tactics?  his name is zero kazama, and he’s totally in love with me.  i know this because he came by and checked out my review of the episode and thankfully left a comment, which made stalking him waaaay easier.  i ended up @ his blog and found that he had a LOT to say about the outcome of that episode.  he brought up some great points that id never really considered, some of which i will share with u.

he als has some great stills of the assaults that poor Joe Torso must deal with on a weekly basis.  im gonna throw one in here just because.

-first good point:  have u ever actually looked at the numbers they put up after having declared a winner of each battle?  yeah, me neither.  two things ppl are quick to trust in this world without question:  doctors and computers.  i always assumed that the numbers wld make sense but, at least in this episode, they dont.  example:  they have the bat killing MORE people than the yakuza’s pistol (wtf?) and only two less than the grenade (??!).  yeah.  unlikely.

-second good point:  for some reason they dont use the same test settings for each comparable instrument.  why not?  wldnt u get more accurate results that way?

-third good point:  they never account for defensive moves or counter attacks.  like sure, an ice pick can kill u if u sit still and wait for it to be slid into ur spine, but what if u move out of the way?  tiny bit more difficult.

and so on and so forth.  zero REALLY picks apart like, every aspect of the show; its a very interesting read.  if u like the show and are interested in this nerd shit, go check it out!!

also, a fun fact!  the shaolin monk that will be plucking the freakin eyeballs out of his enemy in tonight’s episode (shaolin monk vs maori, tonite at 10 on spike tv!!)?  that’s zero’s roommate.

if ever there was a house that you SHOULD NOT ATTEMPT TO ROB under any circumstances, theirs is it.

  1. I’ve said the same thing about different tests for similar weapons. Like last night, they tested the Monk staff on pottery, but the Maori staff against a meatless spine. I was like, how is this the same thing? Dude broke up some dishes and this guy is breaking a spine?

    I figure it’s all for extra effect. They knew damn well that Maori staff weapon would destroy some pottery and that cutting the spine would be cooler….I still have no idea why they had the Monk staff break some dishes.

    Now, we know wassup with the fucker with the Mafias numbers….we’ve discussed that one.

  2. hey! im actually not zero’s roommate, his roommate was a monk in the re-creation and stats, but i was over at their place yesterday. =P

    we’re probably going to have a breakdown of last nights episode on spike.com coming out friday or sat. so look for it! =)
