  • Modern Marvels continues to pump out gallons of information, but the topics need refining.

    NNow in its eleventh season, Modern Marvels is still going strong, but everything isn't right in paradise. As with any long-running series, Modern Marvels is simply beginning to run out of topics. Technology encompasses a simply massive range of topics, but it is still finite. There’s a lot for MM to still cover, but as time goes by the topics of the show will begin to grow more esoteric and overall quality will wane.

    While MM continues to satisfy its vast fan base, it is definitely past its prime. Even though the show still has years of topics to cover before it runs out of mainstream subjects, the series is generally less interesting than it used to be. This is more a result of the episodes' focus than anything else; MM is foraying more and more into areas already well covered by other documentaries (many of which are also aired on The History Channel). This trend is taking the series down more than lack of subjects, but there's good news: the 'disease' is treatable with an infusion of fresh ideas.
