    Crap, I missed it when I was switching to the Hopper from my other DVR. Better go d/l it somewhere.

    Hard to tell with the way these shows are edited, but it seemed he missed his first sniper shot and she landed her first as he was about to take his second.

    The targeting systems they used on the boat (and I guess in other missions) would have been frustrating as Dean Cain pointed out - it seemed the weapons shot blanks while simultaneously releasing a laser pulse :confused: to trigger the explosive target. So if you were slightly off, you had no indication if you were off to the left, right, below, or above. I wonder if the official MILES system has this drawback as well.

    Some behind the scenes pics from Eve on her site:

    The "Team Torres" hair and makeup team pose cracks me up. :)

    Women rule! I never saw either one of them before, but they kicked butt!

    I was surprised too that Todd Palin lost in the shoot out.

    Good show, and they really gave away a lot of money for a summer replacement show. I wonder if they can write it off twice since it's an expense and a charitable donation? ;)

    Both Eve and Picabo have been awesome shooters all season. Todd was strong except with a handgun, so I wasn't surprised to see him get beaten in the shootout.

    I hope Grady can get another show of his own.

    Maybe one where he just reads the phone book without his shirt on. :eek: :eek: ;)

    I had never heard of Eva Torres, but man was I impressed by her. Same for Picabo, though I had heard if her. Didn't expect that final 3. I really liked some of the operatives too.

    :(

    This country sucks, you know? We send guys off to war, and once they come home (assuming they even make it home), we don't give a rat's ass about their quality of life afterwards. :mad:

    But I guess it's all of a piece with the general suckitude of how we treat all our citizens who have any kind of mental illness.

    People said stupid **** on Facebook, too.

    One of our fellow Americans is dead, leaving behind a wife and two kids and presumably other friends and family who will miss him. And he was killed at a charity event while trying to help other people. I don't care about politics at times like this. It's sad - full stop.

    What a shock. Surviving all that danger in Afghanistan and being killed on a gun range. I suspect one of the rarer places to be killed by an intentional gunshot is a gun range.

    The Gun Range my son and I go to has safety measures up the wazoo, but I guess there's no stopping "crazy" no matter how many precautions you take.

    The latest stories I've read made it sound like it was just the 3 of them on the range at the time.
