  • American Inventor gets down to business and weeds out the humorous and zeroes in on real innovations. ABC's judges want more. They want "passion" and enthusiasm and this triggers some heartwarming but also heartbreaking backstories as well. To win the one

    This episode of American Inventor is pivotal. Will the ABC reality show finally be about inventing or will it only be America's "funniest" invention-like vignettes? This episode superficially examines what have been chosen as the nations 50 best inventions. But the tv show takes a turn. A sharp turn to being a show that wants to be a tear-jerker as well as a show about inventions. Maybe this will satisfy the fans of Extreme Makeover Home Edition, but will it satisfy the millions of viewers who want a competition show about inventions and the process of inventing? Only the ratings will tell. Maybe next season American Inventor will make adjustments and the format will actually be about inventors, Eureka moments and the exciting journey of real inventing. Let's hope so.
