    Forged In Fire

    It gives me flashbacks of Project Runway moving from Bravo to Lifetime. Plus - and I really hate that they do this - they've needlessly lengthened the episodes from 60 minutes to 63 minutes, so it doesn't end until 3 minutes after the hour. And what inevitably happens is that I'm DVRing the show while watching a different channel, then at the hour I change back to History to watch the show after FiF. What do I see? Wil declaring someone the winner, and I think "Do I really want to watch this episode now?"

    A couple of people have made (semi)musical instruments on the show in the past. And of course Barbara's husband (Mike?) could have made a whole orchestra.

    Season 4 Discussion

    Yes, the laid back attitude was very strange especially since the victim was loosely based on mathematician Alan Turing, who at this same time period (mid '50s) was convicted of soliciting a male prostitute and sentenced to chemical castration. Other than that, this was a perfect episode for Leonard to help Geordie, but I don't think he'd be much help over the course of a season. He runs like Peewee Hermann. BTW, I assume that the reason PBS ran the first 2 episodes together was because they bookend Sydney's exit story.

    That's why I said Billings "comes off" as an asshole as I don't know him personally and you never know what the edit is. I guess with a bot as lethal as Tombstone (normally), it's easy to play the villain. I did notice the hug after the fight, that impressed me.

    I agree to both sentiments. I thought the redesign of Sawblaze was poor, it put too much weight in the back and the imbalance really showed once it was in the battlebox. I dislike that type of bot in general, the designers may think they're lethal but they seldom have a chance to utilize their main weapon in an actual fight. While I don't care for hammer bots, I thought Blacksmith was in control for the whole of that fight, and landed a surprising number of blows. I would have awarded it the win over Sawblaze. I was convinced that Tombstone would make it to the final buzzer and the judges would award Billings the win just because it's Tombstone. Alternately I feared that Rotator would stop working and be counted out while Tombstone was sitting there on fire. "I requested this matchup." Does everyone get that privilege? Billings continues to come off as an asshole. It was thrilling to watch Tombstone burn up.

    Isn't it more like 6ish hours? They usually split the stage 1 runs into 2 episodes, and then the stage 2-3-4 runs make up the last ep.

    They described the spinner part of her bot as an "egg beater", so I assume the whisk was about that.

    Well, now I don't have to worry about mixing up Barry and Brady. There are now 3 men and all 3 women remaining. I wonder if this is going to end up being the shortest season ever. Almost everyone seems to be living on the edge.

    Lest we forget this comment: Jill, you have a big empty backyard now. Go ahead and plant some zucchini. Ask Jana for help if need be. Go ahead, I dare you.

    I have a hard time matching that picture with a recipe for stuffed zucchini.

    I was unable to find a list of safety items although I have seen them listed in the past. At a minimum, they get the gps phone, a basic medical kit, and an air horn or bear spray.

    Yeah, they got 4 out of 6 in the Supporting Actress category. I'm trying to remember what original work Michael McKean did last year in BCS.

    Were they allowed gill nets this season? Last year in Mongolia they were not.
