History can be examined in many ways and that can be the difference between boring and captivating. The Carradines host one of the most interesting, entertaining, and educational shows on television. Each episode examines a different aspect of Western life and the technology shaped it. Details in the past that might have seemed trivial before become vivid in the anecdotal stories, re-enactments, and technological demonstrations.
One soon begins to wish this crew had taught them history . From bandits, to wars, to cowboys, trains, and all that lies in between, these hosts make it come alive.
This is truly an innovative show with great value beyond its entertainment draw. One can only hope The History Channel recognizes "Wild West Tech." as the under-appreciated gem that it is.
