  • Deeply informative

    9.5
    This show takes mundane things that we usually don't think twice about and goes in depth with them explaining how complicated these seemingly simple things really are. It tackles things as complicated as wind turbines and things as simple as vacuum cleaners. It explains how the evolved, how they work, how they are used, and how they are being further developed. This show will change your outlook on technology and make you think about simpler things more. My only complaint is that it seems like they have been running out of episode ideas lately and are barrel scraping (Ex. Bread, stink, frying, glass,

    This is definitely an interesting show and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in science and technologies that influence the modern world.moreless

  • Hot & Spicy

    I love spicy food and the only "remedy" you stated was to use milk and dairy products to relieve the capsaicin heat. Well, believe it or not, I have found exactly what binds with the capsaicin better than anything else: the JUICE from a cantalope. You can use the fruit, but it works best if you chew it a long time to get down to just the juice - when you do, the capsaicin binds with it and the heat leaves your mouth like it hadn't been there at all!!moreless

    I have always loved Modern Marvels and have made a very valid attempt to see very episode. I find that Modern Marvels both teaches and entertains. While other shows are obviously educational and can be used to put students to sleep better than a boring lecture, Modern Marvels actually interests me. I love learning about various things and learning about their pasts and their applications. Whether you want to learn everything that there is to learn about wood, or about the largest machines, Modern Marvels is the show to watch. With well over 400 episodes, I believe that Modern Marvels has earned its keep.moreless
