    I just saw a promo for a new GAME SHOW called SPYMASTER on TLC.

    Based on the commercial it appears this show will let "regular" people train (including, it appears, using firearms) and compete to be on a "SWAT team" -- it looks like it has some POTENTIAL to be an interesting show.

    I think the first show will air March 30.

    Anyone else see this commerical or have any further info on this new tactical game show?

    :D :what: :D

    Is it going to be a game show, or more like a "Survivor" reality show?

    It takes a long time to become proficient with that stuff IMHO.

    Everyone knows that as soon as you buy something with an HK label you are an expert shot.

    Good point...

    It may be more of a REALITY SHOW than a game show.

    Is that TLC as in "The Learning Channel"?

    I sure do miss Combat Missions.

    Sounds like it might be fun ... wonder if it will be as good as the USA Network's Combat Missions which while it had a bit more silly drama then I'd like, sure looked like a lot of fun :)

    I found this info on the new Spymaster show from the TLC (The Learning Channel) website:

    "Spymaster
    Making the Grade

    Ordinary men and women across the U.S. find out if they have what it takes to become a secret agent. In one brutal weekend they are they are subjected to a series of mental and physical challenges that tests their courage, stamina, wits and character."

    :what: :D :what:

    Also, I found this photo on the site promoting the show -- what type of handgun is in this photo:

    :p :D :p

    Looks like a P99 ... I'm just glad the model is showing proper trigger dicipline :)

    Neat idea. Hope it plays well.

    I think we'll get a glimpse of just how hard this stuff really is, hopefully the guys-off-the-street will get some contrast and time with the 'real deal' as it were.

    It will show two things:

    - That with just a little bit of basic survival knowlege, just about anyone can learn to defend themselves and act pro-actively to avoid and subdue average street thugs.

    - That to really be an Ultimate Badass(TM) takes a lot of time, dedication, and skill.

    If it's like other "reality" shows, they'll be eating bugs by the end of the first day. :barf:

    If they're supposed to be 'secret' agents why are they showing them on TV?

    So what happened with this show? I've never even heard of it, and I couldn't find anything on the TLC website.

    Nothing on television is as idiotic as these so-called 'reality shows'. All of 'em.
