Editorial Reviews

Join explosive experts Dr. Braden Lusk and Dr. Paul Worsey for a backstage pass to the worlds biggest and toughest demolition jobs. From urban skyscrapers and massive steel bridges to giant stadiums and towering cranes, you'll meet the highly skilled blasters who can bring down any structure with pinpoint accuracy. Using special cameras and high-speed camera technology, our experts will give you a unique, behind-the-scenes look at how demolition specialists take down engineering giants with the push of a button. THE DETONATORS takes you inside the explosive-packed world of professional demolition engineers as they use all their skills to fire off the perfect blast.

Episodes: LIVERPOOL: Visit the blast sites of two steel structures: one, a pair of bridge towers in Corpus Christi, Texas; the second, two harbor cranes in Liverpool, England. Will both of the blasts go off without a hitch? CORAL GABLES: FL: Dr. Lusk takes us to the heart of Coral Gables, Florida - home to the historic Ponce de Leon Towers. But as he'll see, not all blasts go off according to plan. GLASGOW: Dr. Lusk and Dr. Worsey show us how demolition blasters bring down urban buildings with unprecedented accuracy in Glasgow, Scotland and Birmingham, Alabama. BERMUDA: Dr. Lusk and Dr. Worsey take us behind-the-scenes at the blasts of two structures that just can't be brought down with a wrecking ball. FOXBURG, PA: The explosive experts show us how blasters use cutting-edge technologies to take down structures in tight spaces. LOUISVILLE, KY: Dr. Worsey focuses on the demolition of a giant office building in Louisville, Kentucky. FORT WILLIAM, SCOTLAND: Dr. Braden and Dr. Worsey examine two steel paper mills that are about to get blasted, but with two totally different methods. NEWCASTLE: The explosive experts look at exactly how blasters take down huge concrete buildings. BISMARCK, ND: Dr. Worsey reveals the tricks of the trade at the blast of a 2,500-foot-long steel bridge in Bismarck, North Dakota. WEIRTON, WV: Dr. Lusk ventures deep into industrial coal country for a dizzying detonation obstacle course. Four big structures need to come down in two days - record time! TORONTO, ON: Standard detonating methods pose big problems when two massive smokestacks are about to be blasted. Experts topple a 643-foot smokestack surrounded nearly on all sides by obstacles. CHARLOTTE, NC: The explosive experts encounter two big problem blasts on a crippled skyscraper in Lagos, Nigeria and a colossal coliseum in Charlotte, North Carolina.

If you like to watch things blow up or not, this is a great series. The art and science of implosion are shown in great detail by folks in the field and professorial experts. What I really liked is that they showed an attempt that was NOT successful; you hardly see a reality show be that real. I watched one episode and could not stop watching! Subsequently I purchased a copy for my dad for Father's Day. Why get a Dad a tie when he can watch things explode, right?

My husband is an engineer so naturally likes this show. To me, it is over my head as they are formulating how to destruct old buildings and structures. This is a great show for him. Perhaps the time slot was bad or the show had a really narrow audience since it was cancelled after a few episodes.
