I didn't care too much. The whole concept of throwing knives and slingshots in a show called Top Shot is ridiculous.

If they're gonna have the format that they appear to, Kelly's days are numbered. He flat sucks with a pistol. I don't think his advantage in rifles is going to be enough to overcome those three or four guys that are excellent with pistols and good to really good with rifles. It might really work out that they find the best overall shot left.

Yeah, I saw Peter in the preview for next week before the match between he and Denny was over. Bad form.

Though I was happy Peter won. Denny basically lost the last three team challenges for the red team. If he had won over Peter I would have been ticked - I'm pulling for Peter, zombie apocalypse prepper that he is, to win.

Two episodes left. I'm wondering what they'll be like - will they eliminate all but the last two next week?

I hope Kelly lasts long enough to knock Denny out of his spot. The Red team isn't a team at all.
I like the way the Blue team makes fun of Denny too. That guy SHOULD call himself out for elimination challenge if he's screwed the pooch for the team multiple times.
With that said though, I wish Kelly would stop moping around.

Well, you kinda got your wish. As of last night, Denny is gone, though it was Peter who beat him in the elimination challenge.

Nice job by Peter. He is my sleeper since there are still some fine shooters left and only 2 episodes to go.

Keep your eyes on Blake and JJ for the next episode. It looked like a speed shoot with pistols. If this is the case, these guys will dominate. Hard.

I'm a former Marine so I wanted to like Adam and the other Marine Corps veterans on the show, but I agree with your assessment.

Was watching the most recent episode and while I'm not a huge fan of the show it was interesting. They got to the part where Denny and the other guy (Pete?) were about to shoot slingshots at the glass for the elimination thing and they cut to commercial. Then during the break they show an ad for the next episode where it clearly shows Denny gone!?!?!?!? It pissed me off pretty bad and I wound up turning it off. I guess all I really need to watch of this show are the ads.

What are commercials? I either DVR or watch online. I don't slow down for the commercials.

So far most of what he has had to say involves funny shit they have been doing in the house during down time, and general comments about the other cast members.

He is bound by a Non Disclosure agreement he takes very seriously (maybe he won and they wont give him the money if he lets info slip??)

Anyway, I will give a recap. The way he keeps talking about it I really think he may have won.

Same here... My wife just came down-stairs with a frowny face when she found out :cry: I liked the last challange, but the range for the rifle shots seemed kinda short.

I have really enjoyed watching this with my 17-year old daughter...we were really on the edge of our seats with tonight's episode. I was disappointed that Kelly got sent home, but glad to see Adam go. We have been rooting for Peter (he's from PA, too, and seems very down-to-earth) so we're happy that he made it to the final episode. So, it's down to Peter, Iain, JJ, and Chris... That challenge with the burning fuse was tough. I would have liked to see them end it a different way than just a single shot on a conventional target.

I have a feeling that the challange was harder then even the producers expected and the single round shoot off was one of those "What now George?" moments.

Agreed. I doubt they expected that 5 of the 7 guys would miss completely the first time.

Can't wait for the final episode. I don''t watch much TV - the last show I watched consistently was "Firefly." I really have enjoyed this, though, despite the reality-show drama bs.

Good lord that means it will get canceled after one season.

Oh, wait its not on Fox.

Whew, that was a close one.
