Jurassic Fight Club!

July 29, 2008

–God, I am psyched!–Jurassic Fight Club debuts on the History Channel Tuesday night at 9:00, at least in my area.  Using scratches found on dino fossilized remains, paleontologists and other experts hypothesize on what fights might have lead up to evidence of those injuries, and reconstruct the fights with computer technology.  There will be consideration of dino tactics, techniques, and even psychology.  As usual, we’ll have to listen to windbags pontificate, but that comes with the territory.

This ain’t gonna be Barney the Dinosaur stuff, although Barney could probably kill most species by inducing sickening nausea. The first episode is reported to include cannibalism, dead young ones, and blood.–Alright, I’m in!!!–While the show probably won’t live up to its hype, Jurassic Fight Club might be fun, at least for a time…’cause in the first Ultimate Fights, there wasn’t any “tapping out!”  I’ll update when I’ve actually seen the show…

I was disappointed in the show; most of what you wanted and expected to see occurred in the last five minutes in terms of the actual dino fighting scenes.  As Dr. McCoy once commented to Mr. Spock in Star Trek (The Original Series), “A little less talk, and a little more action…that’s what we need around here, Mr. Spock!”    😉
