  • Not my ideal type of show

    Reminds me of being in school, science or history class. Not good memories, creepy teachers. Maybe 25% of episodes don't irritate me, boyfriend loves the show...
  • Music

    The music is so loud sometimes it is like trying to listen to the narrator shouting in a night club. Also the rhythm and beat can be so annoying. It is such a good program spoiled by mad music
  • how do you make what it's made of ?

    We are watching How It's Made and couldn't find how to suggest a show. We were watching how to make a flashlight for SCUBA divers. When we saw the plastic pellets it is made of we both asked why the pellets have a hole in the middle so my question ... How do they make plastic pellets?

  • background music

    We really like your program, but your background music can get very annoying a lot of the time. Sometimes, we have to turn off the program because it is so annoying. You need to find different music for the background or just eliminate the music altogether. Thank you for your consideration.
  • Doghouse

    How are basketballs tennis balls, softballs, cricket balls, volleyballs, pool balls and soccer balls made?

    I also would like to see how playpens and doghouses are constructed.

    One last request is you should show how Asian durians are grown.

    Having been a maker of custom nylon panties for men and women, I would be intrigued to see how they are made in a factory.
