Time Commanders

I'm rather taken with this show. So much so, I've just sent off an e-mail to see if I can get on it.

Last night's show was fabulous - unlike last week where they actually had a plan and a clue - these guys were absolutely awful. They gave up a fantastic tactical position - where they had the high ground and a natural amphitheatre of trees to prevent their forces being outflanked and surrounded - and lead their troops onto a wide plain to go toe-to-toe with a force that outnumbered them SIX TO ONE.

Naturally, they got absolutely carved to pieces. It was great viewing to see the command structure break down, and the two Generals increasingly flap about as their forces were steadily and remorselessly massacred. It was particularly amusing when the Roman Archers started slaughtering their own men, and the Lieutenant in charge of the infantry went ape. Some of the best TV I've seen all year.


Speaking of Friendly Fire,... Becoming a bit of a habit, isn't it, George?
