I watched the pilot episode tonight. I was surprised at how well most of them did. Eric Estrada had the advantage I think. After playing Ponch on CHiPS, it was easier for him to get into the mindset. Some of the others I'm not so sure would have made it if they hadn't had a lot of help.I don't think I'm going to watch the series, but I thought of him when I saw the ads on TV. Here are some questions for our Knight-Protector. How far are these guys going to go? What situations would you absolutely not put them in if you were in charge? What do you think they could handle?
When I saw the ad for the show with the little dude working on martial arts, giving the knee to a practice bag, all I could think was that I would kick his butt. He's got no range at all. He'd be smacked a dozen times before he got close enough to do anything. He can't use those knees, either, since he can't get any higher than your thigh. I guess if it was me, I would teach him Tai Chi and not waste my time with anything else. His only hope would be to use his opponent's momentum and his own leverage to bring the guy down.
