Deadliest Warrior Analyzes Zombies vs. Vampires

That's right.  After seeing a recent commercial advertising the upcoming 3rd season of The Deadliest Warrior on Spike TV, I checked the site to see some examples.  Scrolling down a bit I almost couldn't believe my eyes, but a quick click on the video link and viola - Zombies vs. Vampires.  While the video really doesn't really give a preview of the episode content, it is still an interesting idea.  I've been a big fan of the show since it premiered because of its analysis of various warrior cultures, the techniques they use, and (or course) an analysis ot their weapons.

What's would be unique about an episode pitting zombies against vampires is the weapons part.  The Deadliest Warrior typically had experts bring four weapons - long range, medium range, short range, and special weapons.  What I'd really like to know is how that's going to work with zombies and vampires.  What "weapons" will they analyze?

What's fun about this is that fantasy writers might be able to use some of this information in developing stories with these two classic monsters.  Okay, so it wouldn't be a complete source of information, but it could give some ideas that could add credibility to the story.

Then again, this could be just one big joke by Spike TV.  But I hope not.  Maybe the producers could add more like Werewolf vs Vampire and a couple of others, then have a Deadliest Monster Warrior marathon on Halloween.
