Yup. The title explains it all. It’s actually kind of fun if you know what you’re getting into–battling canines. The cast is pretty good, but I always wonder why they sign up for projects like this. Dennis Haysburt has had such solid projects on television these days. What was it about the script for Battle Dogs that made him say, “Yeah sure, I’ll do that.” A better question: what was it about the description of Battle Dogs that made ME say, “Yeah sure, I’ll watch that.”
I don’t know, but maybe I should have been a bit more selective.
