I've seen all of those except Fight Science. You used to be able to watch Fight Quest streaming on Netflix. I think Deadlist Warrior is available though.

Of them all, the one I never carred for was Deadliest Warrior. It sounds cool, but I found it to be kind of a silly show. I mean they had episodes that basically amounted to Pirate vs. Ninja. The problem is they try too hard to strip it of the fun cheese factor with the veneer of "real science" when it really just boils down to, "Nooo, Vlad the Impaler could easily beat up Genghis Khan."

Cool, Chad ... Thanks for weighing in. I agree with your assessment of Deadliest Warrior ... It is a cool idea, but the execution might have been better, but I still enjoyed it ...
