    What will they use as the subject? Buster isn't human enough. They've done a skeleton inside ballistic gel before. That could work. Or ... volunteers? :eek:

    I love my wife! She said "It can't be the girl. She wouldn't be tall enough or strong enough to cut someone in half!

    Wow, you have really given this some serious thought! I love it!

    I was disappointed he didn't reference Highlander! Again, my wife is awesome! She said "DiNozzo (from NCIS) would have referenced Highlander!"

    I really enjoyed it! Had to do a quick search of any Real Life Superheroes in the Atlanta area. Anyone else? I was pleasantly surprised to learn of a humanitarian out there, in costume, handing out food/water to the homeless. You, go! Crimson Fist!! :)
    There may be others, but none like this guy who can chop people in half with Samurai moves. WOW!

    I agree, though, that Alexis is definitely not the type to be merely following her boyfriend to college and taking the same classes... not sure why they've tried to goofy her up as she's getting older - and glad they resolved it, at the end.

    I don't think he can angle for a role on Highlander. ;)

    Well, Game of Thrones talks about castles all the time, so it was only fair...

    They could buy a skeleton & put the gel stuff around it. Didn't they(Mythbusters) do a very good mock up of a skull for a bullet experiment? IIRC, Adam did a lot of work on skin density. Also they could use a pig.
    I'm assuming they start at the shoulder & not the top of the head.

    Samurai swords are for slicing. There is no way on God's green earth you are going to get one to split someone down the middle. A Chinese Dao Sword or Scottish Claymore perhaps. (Think Braveheart) These things are made for cleaving and chopping.

    I actually paused the show and ranted for 60 seconds to my wife about this. Lucky for me she's understanding.

    Final note. When the Zombie Apocalypse comes you want a broadsword for cutting their heads clean off. Stay away from the samurai swords. :)

    I love superhero stuff, but this was one of the poorest episodes of Castle ever, IMO.
