    The truly terrible, Lock 'N Load, a six-parter debuting tonight on Showtime, is possibly the worst-taste reality series since "The Littlest Groom"--and it took some serious doing on the part of Showtime to manage that.

    We get some slightly bent soccer moms and dads debriefed by an impossibly cheery, cheesy, chummy game-show host. Showtime must have thought there would be great humor and irony in the mundane exchanges recorded here. But it miscalculated. Badly.

    I am a professional consultant who currently does not own a gun. After watching Lock & Load I went target shooting and found I really shooting & am good at it. I noww want to take gun owner safety class & purchase my own firearm. Bad guys will always find a way of obtaining a gun through illegal means..... Bad guys do not like going into homes where people have guns. They are on a power trip looking for vulnerable people. Full Review »

    Pretty balanced view of "gun nuts" in America. Some poor gun handling and some very funny anecdotes. Very funny when Josh convinces one of his customers to tase his buddy. Full Review »
