Topshots on the history channel

Anyone watched it yet? I have seen the previews but haven't seen an episode. Is it worth watching, or is it another one of those reality tv shows where people compete and bitch and complain about each other?

I watched it Sunday evening and thought it was just ok. I'll give it another couple weeks and decide if I want to keep watching it or not. The host aggravates the hell out of me, so probably not.

It is very much survivor with guns. I have not decided yet if it is worth watching it needs a few more weeks.

Well that is disappointing. Why do they have to turn it into a survivor bitch fest? It is supposed to be a competition. This is the number one reason I hate reality tv.

I got caught up on the episodes yesterday, and I must say I'm looking forward to the next one. Not so much for the shooting but for the drama. I'm pulling for the kid Kelly who IMO was thrown under the bus. As for Adam, I hope he gets his soon. He makes all former marines look bad.

I think you're the only person in America still watching that show.

It's ghay! and I watch it. I hate reality tv and i watch it. The drama amongst the dudes is pathetic. The kid will win because he is the most coachable. He improves on everything it's pretty amazing.

The contests are the reason I watch. The tests are absolutely genius.

I watch it and think its pretty good. The kid Kelly is probably the best. He's knocking them all off one by one.

Been watching it since the beginning... there are some whiners that make the show annoying. The kid Kelly was doing quite well. Hoping JJ wins

They cut like half the people in two shows, apparently Kelly couldn't cut it.

Video and audio both heavily edited. Notice after almost every shot they cut away from the shooter to the target and rarely show an angle of shooter and target together. It's all scripted bullshit.

Watched the finale on Sunday it was pretty good I thought had some nice shooting games. Do you really think it was edited, I didn't but who knows these days.

I don't think it's scripted at all. Just edited so we can see the slo-mo stuff.

Finale was great. Loved the blue-red shooting and then the final competition was great.

Was hoping Kelly would have won, but his downfall was going first on that competition. Everyone saw what he did and asked what they could do better.
