Welcome to the Toy Department

Time for one last look at an upcoming midseason show before 2007! If you count the AH-64 Apache Longbow or Dragon Skin body armor among things that are cool, you should check out Discovery's "FutureWeapons." Unlike sister show "MythBusters," the testosterone-fueld eye candy here isn't tenuously wrapped in a "Mr. Wizard"-like science lesson.

Nah, all baldheaded host and former Navy SEAL Richard "Mack" Machowicz does is excitedly explain what advanced weaponry is about to be detonated, fired, blasted, ignited, exploded or imploded. Then cut to the detonation, firing, blast, ignition, explosion or implosion. It's really that simple and fun.
