Blast into Summer

Monday, May 29th starts at 7P ET

By: Staff

Join us as we pay tribute to those U.S. servicemen and women who gave their lives defending our freedom.

Had it not been for their service, we may not have ever known the great gift of liberty bestowed upon us all.

On Monday, May 26th starting at 7P ET, we are showing the entire first season of the new hit show Hollwood Weapons, and new episodes of American Marksman.

Check out the line-up below.

*All times in ET

Hollywood Weapons

Episode 1 - Pilot: Terry’s Criminal Mind - 7P
A murderer tries to kill his final victim as the car they are in slowly sinks to the bottom of a lake. The only way to save the victim is to rescue her as the car continues to sink. We test fire multiple handguns underwater to see if you can actually penetrate a car windshield and save the victim.

Episode 2 - Shark Go Boom - 7:30P
In this iconic scene, Chief Brody hangs on to his sinking boat as a giant shark approaches him with a scuba tank lodged in its mouth. We construct a giant shark on a motorized platform to test if you can hit, and explode, the tank with an M1 Garand rifle while perched in a precarious position.

Episode 3 - The Good, The Bad and Terry - 8P
In this classic western, Clint Eastwood – aka “Blondie” – saves Eli Wallach from the hangman’s noose three separate times by shooting and severing the rope that he hangs from. We recreate each scene and test the reality of these shots with the weapons that were used.

Episode 4 - Dying Hard - 8:30P
John McLain (Bruce Willis) finds himself dangling from the side of a building. The only way to save himself is to shoot through the glass window and break through to safety. Using the same Beretta 92 handgun, we reconstruct the office glass and see if our host can break through.

American Marksman

Regionals - 9P
A revolutionary new shooting competition attracts amateur shooters from across the country. All vying for a chance to qualify for the National Championship at CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park in Alabama.

Finals - 9:30P
37 of the top amateur shooters in the country have gathered at the CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park in Alabama to compete for the American Marksman Championship.

Hollywood Weapons

Episode 5 - Schapbo - 10P
John Rambo’s ability to decimate enemies all by himself has created some of the most incredible weapon stunts in Hollywood history. We test the reality surrounding these iconic scenes from this blockbuster franchise.

Episode 6 - Terry and The Minigun - 10:30P
Can you really fire a GE Minigun handheld with ammunition held in a backpack (also seen on Captain America: Winter Soldier). Additionally, for one of our larger tests – can you actually chop down a jungle forest with a minigun? Actor Bill Duke – who co-starred with Arnold Schwarzenegger for the film and who’s character performed this weapon stunt – joins us to find out. But first, we have to build a jungle.

Episode 7 - Scoreless - 11P
Using a unique method to crack a safe, Nick Wells (Robert De Niro) uses a blowtorch to cut through a safe, fill it with water, and blow the door off using a small explosive device. We test this, along with the effects of a 20mm antitank rifle on a safe from the movie Thuderbolt and Lightfoot.

Episode 8 - Terry vs. Gorn - 12A
Captain James T Kirk’s battle with the Gorn alien is the most popular episode from the original series. He defeats the Gorn by creating gunpowder from the base elements found on the planet. We partner with the Star Trek museum in New York – home of the fully reconstructed Enterprise bridge – as we test the reality of making gunpowder by hand without actually blowing yourself up.
