    Kudos Jonny and Dan. That really was a stacked field.

    Man, what the heck is that bottle made of?

    Got to see my dream since Season 1, of Dan taking on the course with a Super Assassin!

    Holy shit, you really are an Asian redneck! :eek::D

    Nice run, 91bravo. Also, condolences that you had to go against Dan Keffeler, LOL!

    The 2nd part of tonight's episode reinforces my opinion that the longer blades/swords provide a distinct advantage on the courses as they currently stand.

    On Dead Run, the reach definitely helps on the first obstacle, where you have to stay in the circle while the targets rotate outside. With ballbuster, it's easier to remain in the same position whereas shorter blades require the wielder to stretch for balls on the far side.

    In Flight Line, you have zero margin for error with a shorter blade on that U-shaped tube. The longer blades with a significantly longer cutting edge definitely have a big advantage.

    Props to the guy wielding the messer, as he definitely has good eye-hand coordination and skill, but those swords have definitely helped many of the wielders overcome contestants who potentially had the physical advantage.

    Great job Jonny and Dan!

    Now I want a Behemoth Chopper even more!
    That Super Assassin was badass and did an amazing job so now it’s time for the KOD Piece wreak havoc on that show.

    Nice run indeed. Nothing to scoff at. Wasn't expecting him to be the first one up. Nice job Johnny.

    Surely wish that I was younger and stronger and smarter and had a nice blade to go on that field of battle. But, if I was smarter, I'd already know you guys are gonna stomp my butt. Nice run...

    Watching the broadcast here on the West. Well done Jonny, good job mate :thumbsup: You showed up and competed your arse off plus Nathan & Jo got double the plugs which they didn’t get when Jeannie had her turn.

    Now I’m waiting for Dr. Dan’s turn :)

    Dr. Dan got cheated! They hexed him by anointing him the "winner" before Dead Run! The other Dan made at least the same number of penalties if not more! I wasn't exactly counting but it just seemed to me that way! I am extremely biased! Bill Goldberg mistook the duck for a turkey??? :confused:

    Dr. Dan had 11 penalties the other Dan had 10. IIRC, the other Dan won by 5 seconds. (or was it 6?)

    It seems to me that they make some runs a bit easier. That turkey was a lot easier to cut that dolgurn rope which no one got through.

    Very cool finally getting to see @91bravo ‘s run last night! He definitely represented better than I! :) I was also happy that Jo and Nathan got the props they deserve since they cut it out of mine.

    Try YouTube in a few days. I found Mecha's episode on there the other night. It was posted in a funky format to get around the copyright, but it was easily viewable.
