...damn man. People are rough on their shows...

I'd expect firearms, but they won't get noticed in detail by the masses. Only the survivalist types that pop wood over the show will dig into that.

The thing is, it doesn't matter at this point if it's good. It's got a guaranteed minimum audience. As long as it's not amateurishly terrible, it will get ratings big enough to justify its existence.

Nah. Probably just means South Korea is a safe zone. Or the Hyundai plant in Alabama.

Too bad they're going towards DC.

I think it just means that Hyundai gave them a hefty chunk of money in exchange for some product placement.
