Title: History Channel Full Metal Jousting
Post by: The Rabbi on June 27, 2011, 06:55:16 PM
  www.pilgrimfilms.tv/casting/jousting/  I was contacted by the casting producer of pilgrim films today and after having checked out the info thought it might be worth passing on. For those of you who are interested I wish you all the best of luck and hope this proves to be benificial to you.

Well as for me I liked it.   I like that there is a nice sized purse on the line too.  Really makes it worth it for the men!

It was very entertaining.  It did not all center on 1 person as in the Nat Geo Version.

Toki and I loved it. Finally a sport I can dig my teeth into and it makes pro football look like pansies for pennies of what those thugs make.

Go team Black!

It just annoys me no end however when promoters in things like this ( or any other venue for that matter ) Diss where they came from. In this case, Ren Faires.
IMO, you should never disrespect where you came from and always remember your roots. Same general thoughts that Charlie from Knights of Mayhem talked smack about. And they are good friends, go figure.

I do pride myself on keeping an open mind. And thus I have watched the first two episodes. I was thoroughly pleased to see it handled in such a professional and respectful way. I plan on watching the rest as well.

*Side Note*
The Pensacola Faire I was at this weekend had advertised that they had two of the cast from this show this weekend. Being I was working it, I had no time to see where they were or if they were performing or just appearing, there was definitely some jousting going on all weekend. Today I saw an ambulance parked near the jousting field and later commented on that. I was told on of the Knights had a lance splinter and go into his leg. Regardless of who it was, I ask for some good thoughts to go to the injured Knight.

I like this show because they're keeping the drama in the back ground and concentrating on the jousting!
