SURVIVING DISASTER – MALL ATTACK

This episode has our hero battling a Kenya-style terrorist attack on a suburban mall.  The LA Times billed it as an “action packed tutorial designed to look like a CNN reporter embedded in Bagdad with the war going on around him – the latest high octane entertainment to hit Spike, the testosterone fuelled cable network”.

I never thought I would get to say this about one of my films : in this episode, learn how to survive a bomb blast and random machine gun fire, make a makeshift silencer for a sniper rifle and take out a terrorist, use a tampon to stop the bleeding of a wounded compadre, then escape to the safety of a SWAT team in a freight elevator while under a spray of bullets.
