I caught this show this weekend. I forget what channel it's on [wait for it... searching... ], or I just found out it's on truTV (what used to be Court TV, right?). They take (so far the episodes I've seen are only this one; there could be other cartoons later) clips from the Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote cartoons and try to duplicate the Acme products schemes WEC tries to use to catch/kill RR. It's pretty good, and they've been fairly successful in matching the contraptions. Check it out!

But how are they at continuing to run off the edge of a cliff until they look down?

Man vs Food is much better. Wednesday nights at 10 on the Travel Channel I believe.

They should do Man vs Silverhawks, where someone makes a moronic costume and flies into space without a mask.

Wait, I've heard this in a George Carlin routine...we crucify one rich white middle class banker (Political party dropped) on halftime of Monday night football to pay off the national debt...

George Carlin cared enough about Silverhawks to use them in a routine?

Man vs GIJoe: a guy runs into the middle of a raging firefight dressed in a bright red football jersey to test whether or not he'll get shot.

Depends on who's shooting/gets shot first: Big Lob or Bazooka. :thumbsup:

You've all ruined my thread! Ruined, I tells ya! :mad: :shakeyerfistharderboy:

Really, on the program, they build the contraptions Wile E. uses (dropping an anvil from a balloon, putting a grenade in a mini propeller plane, rocket rollerskates, etc.), to see if they will work in "real life." It's facinating.

Now, back to your Man vs. [insert cartoon here] tomfoolery... :rolleyes:

My cable provider doesn't offer Trutv, so I be out of luck.
