i have been watching the show and i must say i am overall very disappointed with it. First of all i will say what i do like about it,and that is the 4 strongmen taking part and traveling the world. Brian Shaw, Eddie Hall, Nick Best and Robert Oberst are 4 of the world's strongest men, good friends and supportive of each other, their Banter and camaraderie are what keep the show going. Now what could have been done. The History channel consulted HOPC for information forthe series, this gave them the opportunity to get the actual facts right and deliver some accuracy to the show,after all it the HISTORY channel so you would expect them to seek authentic historical facts.It became apparent to David and Diane that their motives were not so pure and dialogue ceased. Anyway the show is a mix of reality TV, entertainment and myth and legend. There are so many inaccuracies i have stopped counting.If you take it as a fun show with some great strongman stunts it is OK.The problem is the majority of people watching it will believe everything presented as historical fact is true,this makes a mockery of those who are trying to promote history accurately.At least HOPC is not in the credits as that would damage our credibility for sure. I will continue watching it because i like the guys but will continue to cringe at the blatant disregard for facts.
Could you please give some examples of the inaccuracies please? I saw there were some annoyed people at the York plate pinch grip challenge. Only 7 had done it and plenty of others said that was not true.
