>History’s Full Metal Jousting (premiering Feb. 12) is one of those reality shows that conceptually click at some foolproof, primal level. Clasp sturdy fellows in armor, mount them on horses, hand them lances and let ’em go at it. There’s much grunting and clanking to thundering hoofbeats. Maybe next we can have a show on siege by catapult. []
