History Channel's marksmanship reality competition returns for its third season with "Top Shot: The Gauntlet." In a somewhat polarizing second season, many viewers were either delighted by or disappointed by the inclusion of additional non-shooting gamesmanship from surprising sources and the emergence of the show's most controversial contestant yet. Purists may want to see this show geared toward the best and most talented candidate winning, but that's not necessarily the way of contemporary reality programming. There is nothing particularly unique about the format of the show which mirrors countless other elimination contests across the television landscape. It seems to be inescapable!

With the subject matter being guns and recreational shooting, however, the show really caters to a widespread sport that you don't see embraced very often in traditional programming. Thus, lovers of target practice and marksmanship have a show that they can call their own. It's not an exclusive club, however, those that love reality competitions but have never been to a shooting range can also have a bit of fun. The show has the expected reality quirks that you either embrace or loathe. There's quick cut editing for dramatic affect, enthusiastic but obvious commentary from the host ("It's a hit" Survivor alum Colby Donaldson might exclaim despite the fact that we've just watched the impact), and eliminations that are based just as much on politics and game-playing as opposed to outright talent (due to team competitions).

That being said, "The Gauntlet" seems a little more straight-forward than the previous season--a return to basics, if you will.

Loved it, recommend it. Its the best Season out of the three and worth buying.

This show is very enjoyable for my kids and I to watch on the xbox. The competition aspects are the best I've seen from any reality show. The challenges are very well done and look like a lot of fun. I think that buying the whole season is the only way to go and it's good to see that they have priced it reasonably.

The contestants were polarizing to say the least. Dustin stood out from the rest of the pack from the very start: he was humble, unassuming, and had no "credentials" to tout. He was a breath of fresh air compared to the usual "toot my own horn" and "I'll whip everyone else's ass" characters on the show. I was thrilled to see him win so decisively.
I could have seen much, much more of Amanda! She is hot! Especially with her shooting stance in the prologue. I was sorry fro see her go so quickly.
Jake Zweig; what can I say? To say he has a "chip on his shoulder" is an understatement. The guy discredited the Navy Seals with his behavior. If not the real McCoy, that is as close to a personality disorder as I have ever seen. Sad thing is that they tend to worsen with age and therapy is usually ineffective. Kind of scary to think of him on the set with loaded weapons and a stinky temper like he has. Could have been catastrophic. In spite of all his bravado and chest-beating, he ran like a crying baby out the door when faced with having to compete in the elimination shoot after ranking dead last in the last competition he was in. Some might say Jake expected to be handed the Top Shot trophy and title; in my opinion, he expected to be crowned as king of the other competitors just because he is Jake. Felt like he was entitled to it. Good riddance to this sad commentary on the Navy Seals!

I'm gettting this DVD as soon as it comes out. It's worth seeing every episode again in my humble opinion. There is a little unsportsmanlike drama with one of the competitors, but by and large, the contestants are very likeable and skilled. The competitions themselves are something shooters and non-shooters alike will find fun, and many of the stories and conversations off of the range are also interesting, with the exception of the one character already mentioned. My guess is that you'll tire of him quickly as well, but fortunately, the standup behavior of the rest of the competitors more than makes up for him.

And for me personally, my favorite competitor won in an exciting finale, so that makes this DVD a must for me. I'm hoping that the DVD itself will have added bonus features that will make it even better than the episodes alone, but even if not, they were good enough to get 5 stars from me. I'll try to report back with an update on the DVD as to if it has any bonus features, and if so, what they're like.

A combo of marksmen competition and reality show. Although I find the format of Season 5 - The All Stars much better than the first four seasons, these seasons are still great to watch for the variety of weapons they have to master and compete with. Starting with 16 marksmen, it gets whittled down to a final 'Top Shot' by the end.

From primitive weapons, to modern weapons, there is probably something you haven't seen or used yourself. The competitions themselves are innovative as well; some really turn the competitors on their heads.

The 'House' drama aspect of the first four seasons is my only complaint about he show, but minor to me, since I watch for the competitions and weapons.

If you like watching men and women shoot difficult targets, as well as some trick shots, and like seeing many different types of weapons, then I think you'll like these seasons.
