    Interesting show for sure, but the acting, especially the screen fights, sucked for the most part. And all the fake Indian war whooping reminded me of really old western movies where the Indians are all going "Whoop! Whoop! Whoop!" the whole time they are attacking the wagon train or the settlers or whatever. I'm sure they knew other things to say besides whoop whoop. It's like canned laughter on a sitcom; you can just tell it's fake.

    You guys are missing the history of the Indians with their "whooping." I heard or read somewhere that one of the Plains Indians fought in the War Between the States. He returned to the plains with the idea of the rebel yell, but not wanting to exactly copy that cry, they came up with "Whoop" as in "whoop their tails."

    I bet the documentaries don't tell that story...
