    This show is realy great, It has my fav qualities, it's a documentary, it tells stories about people and very interesting. This documentary shows that Our body can be very amazing, we may not run faster than a cheetah,dive like a whale, but we have our brain. Like they say, Brains are way better than Brawns, this is why our ancestors survive all of these years. Our Brain is really incredible, After watching Brain power, I was really amazed at the human brain.



    If you think humans are lame well you better watch this show, you can really learn a lot from it.moreless
  • A very fascinating show about all the cool "tricks" the human body can do that you never knew.

    Let's face it, for some of us, sitting through science class wasn't exactly the most exciting part of our day. But even for the non-enthusiasts, this show creates a newfound appreciation for the human body. The show compiles a list of the most intriguing facts and discards all of the "boring" facts that you would otherwise expect on a Discovery Channel show. Each show focuses on a specific aspect of the human body, giving you great depth and, at the same time, giving you a broad overview of the human body as a whole over the course of the season. This show is great for both the layman and the science junkie. It covers details that aren't too basic, yet the show breaks down the concepts in a very easy to understand form.moreless

    I'm not one to like documentaries, but this series is amazing! I love learning about what the human body is capable of, and I espeically love the graphics. The graphics are so precise and show exactly what the body undergoes during the marvels shown on the series. It's so interesting and keeps me captivated and I just love it!!! Finally a series that shows some of the feats the human body is capable of when they're needed. Because most of us just live day by day going through the motions, we don't realize what it is our bodies are actually doing. This is such a cool series and I can't wait to see the future episodes!!! :D (...I sound like a nerd, I know, but w/e. Idc. This stuff is really cool.)moreless
