May 12, 2009: Live Action Car Wars?

For years, I've watched the various forms of demolition derby, and wondered why no one put guns or rockets on the vehicles? Playing Car Wars was great, but watching real live cars blow each other up would have been better.

And now Discovery Channel is taking a step in the right direction, with their new mini-series Weaponizers. Two teams modify vehicles to deal with an obstacle course, followed by a head-to-head duel.

The previews make the pyrotechnics look more "flash" than "bang," but those guns look serious, and who doesn't love a nice explosion. The first episode aired last night; hopefully the series gets enough interest to expand the three episodes into a regular series.
