  • The Idea behind the show is solid, the host(s) ruined this series success

    1.0
    Personally I was excited about the idea's behind each episode. But the hosts and hostess, forgive my bluntness, are complete idiots and annoying as can be. These people they called engineers and scientists.. That's a joke. my niece in high school would have done a better job and it would have been more entertaining. Episode one for example, each of the teams ideas were implemented horribly, was there even any math done before attempting to construct the models? There was no real thought process involved in the hypothesizing and the physics of the experiments were complete fail. When crashing the cars, not even close to reproducing the realistic results.moreless
  • Negative score possible?

    1.0
    This might be Discovery's worst show ever...The only thing this show has going for it is the strongest community support that I have ever seen for its removal from the television. Its amazing...people unite around this show....to get rid of it. That should be a very strong message to Discovery that their average viewer is smart enough to know that this show has more in common with the Jerry Bruckheimer crowd then it does with the Einstein crowd.



    After having attempted to watch a few times I am left with only 2 requests. Allow me to vote negative on the "Your score" scale, and for the mercy of humanity take this show off the air!moreless
  • OMG!! who change the channel? oh wait... this is Discovery Channel!

    1.7
    I can't stand this show, its amazing how Discovery can produce this! The show is flat, the ideas that the teams develop are so bad and I'm sorry "retarded"... no one of the solutions to the problems that they deal are able for the real world, so you just waste 60 minutes of you life watching people ensamble ridiculos junk.



    What I can say about the hosts on the show... well they are sloooww, they don't show emotions, no jokes, it feels like they just going with the script and that is all.



    MythBusters should be the only show of the kind that Discovery need, the perfect mix of science and fun.moreless
  • Solid science/engineering show along the same vein as Mythbusters. Just avoid the first season, which had many, many problems. From what I've watched of season two, the show is only getting better.moreless

    7.5
    Despite a terrible first season, which I was only able to suffer through 3 episodes of, I think this show is a solid science/engineering show.



    It's similar to Mythbusters, but they do things on a much grander scale and on a much larger budget. Because of this, they get bigger/more explosions, but less of the practical (cost, time) engineering side. However, it's still quite enjoyable because of the interesting challenges they take on.



    I think the second season is a great improvement over the first, so don't judge the show too quickly (or just avoid the first season). It took Mythbusters a few season to really perfect their show as well. The new team members, new narrator, and fewer scripted lines on Season 2 are what makes me give it a solid 7.5. It would be higher if they explained their design decisions and methodology more.moreless
  • I like the show alot because it shows us how de world can be a better place, with thinks we have made already.

    9.6
    I like the show alot because it shows us how de world can be a better place, with thinks we have made already. Also I think Mythbuster is a whole different show and this show just shows us what's out there to make our lives better and saver. I don't know why all you people don't like this. Maybe it's too healty for the world. This is my view off this show like it or don't like it. I believe that this show has great potential to be a great show for everyone in a better and cleaner world to watch.moreless
