I was a bit stuck for a tv program to watch one evening and was generally channel hopping when I came across 'Forged in Fire', a program where metalsmiths of various smithing disciplines compete to forge the best historical weapon. It's not something I would normally have watched but I found it both compelling and interesting and these days, I rarely miss an episode.

So I was wondering what tv programs you watch (or films that you have watched) that you found surprisingly enjoyable.

"I love the phrase "forge the best historical weapons." Sounds like something Albert Spangler would have done..."

I am certain that they knew about the double meaning, because that is exactly what they are doing - making copies good enough to be museum-quality fakes, if they were the sort of people who would do that.
