My son(5)asked so many questions about how many different things were manufactured that this was a great alternative to show him how things come to be. While the segments in the episodes just touch the surface of the manufacturing processes, it is the right amount of time to keep my son fully engaged. He is thrilled to see how guitars, pianos, cheese, lawn mowers, windows and else are manufactured. Great entertaining and learning item.

I really like these kind of "how do they do that" shows. I don't have cable so I have to buy the sets when they come out on DVD. As a fan of Brian Unger from watching his "How the States got their Shapes" series, I figured I would like this series too.

Season One (disc one) was great - seven episodes. Each episode is broken up into three parts. Given that the shows are around 45 minutes in length, that makes for each piece about 15 minutes in length. It surprised me how much information that they could cover in 15 minutes. I think my favorite was the episode that showed how custom bowling balls were made - I learned something new watching that.

Season Two (disc two), I have to say this set of 12 episodes wasn't on the same level as those of the first season. Well, a few were but the rest not so much. I can't really put my finger on why that was. The only thing different is that many of the episodes only featured two topics instead of the three the first season cover each episode. The shows are still 45 minutes long, so that means each segment is around 22 minutes long. Maybe it's just me. Later into the season they have a few episodes with three topics.

Over all, I think this is a great series. And I think I've learned a few things from watching it. I would recommend it to anyone with a curiosity to learn how-do-they-do that. Keep in mind though, there is a lot of humor in these episodes (or at least an attempt at humor), as the host can get a bit silly at times. I like his humor, but I could imagine there might be some people who don't.

My family loves this show. You can't go wrong with Some Assembly Required. The narrator is entertaining, and gives you enough of a show without losing the focus of the show itself. We love to learn how things are made, and this series is perfect for that.
