Seasons 1&2 vs Season 3
20 February 2008 | by delta-52See all my reviews

When I first heard about this show coming, I was quite excited to see what was it actually going to be about. My expectations were met all the way! Every episode presents few of the 'future weapons' - technical specifications and downrange tests - hosted by Mack, an ex-Navy SEAL. Every episode, every new weapon had a unique freshness and originality to it that made the show extremely watchable and exciting... which brings me to Season 3. When taking a look back onto previous seasons, I cannot shake this feeling that Season 3 was recorded under coercion, without inspiration and, probably, hoping to win watchers on show's previous glory. The weapons that were presented lacked the originality of Season 1&2, there was nothing special about them and it seemed like the producers worked hard to find anything 'future' just as to fill the show's runtime (results = less originality). Thumbs down for Season 3 - it could be better!
