    Okay, so the theme music leaves alot to be desired. Outside of that this show is wonderful. Fun, entertaining, & educational. Every so often I will find a segment boring and change the channel--but lucky for me there is a couple of segments each show so I know that it boring segment will be over soon. Its great that they explore a wide range of things--from harleys to civil war cannons.



    My fav. "detectives" are Tukufu Zuberi and Gwen Wright. They are both knowledgeable and entertaining.Okay, so in truth I have a little crush on Tukufu Zuberi. I can't help it.moreless
