Good idea Baltic Dog.  Lets use the Fire Hydrant thread for this purpose.

We just missed a show on Monday at 12am (PST) and one other over the weekend.

Here is the link to the TV schedule :
http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/tv-schedule

Although I do not have the cable service level to see this anymore, I see Video on Demand (VOD) until February 10.   Does that mean they will not eve have the show on VOD again?

Fight Club: No Limits
Available on VOD until February 10
Brad Pitt may have made it famous, but NGC shows you what life is really like in the subculture of competitive fighting. No judges, no trophies and no referees. It's not just a sport but a rite of passage, a personal challenge each man must face.

I've watched this a few times, and I have to say that the one guy on it that is talking about how stuff like the Dog Brothers causes people to be more violent really makes me mad. How does he not understand that competitions of physical strength have been a part of masculine development since recorded history. Good show either way though.

Just watched it again, I have it on my DVR, and Dr. Michael Addis is the one I was talking about.  It just really irritates me. Almost as much as the martial artists that want to say that the Dog Brothers are just brawlers with sticks, that can't correctly use the techniques of the style but refuse to step up at a gathering and prove it. I mean I've never fought at one of The Gatherings of the Pack, mainly for lack of transportation, but even I understand that if my back was against the wall I'd rather have even someone that got thoroughly destroyed in their one and only fight at a gathering than just about anyone else with me. Anyway, I'm starting to get off topic so I'll stop there. It is a really great documentary though and I recommend it to anyone that wants to get a bit of a better understanding of the Dog Brothers but is unable/unwilling to get to a gathering. I especially enjoyed that they didn't really "center" it around any one person. It was nice seeing the different people that show up to fight.

I too greatly like the variety of people who come to the Dog Brothers experience.

Dr. Michael Addis adds a touch of welcome controversy.  A show of smiley people exchanging buddy remarks brings out the yawn in all of us. 

I'd like to see some people picketing outside of a Gathering.
