I really enjoy this series. The one thing that is missing is an episode, Battlefield Cell, which should be episode 5.

I bought the episode about the plane crash test, but I suspect my complaints will play out across the board for the series.

While this program was obviously not edited for a commercial-free viewing experience, I suspect that watching the broadcast would be just as infuriating.
1. The narrative of the episode follows this idea that various factors are conspiring to cause the experiment to not successfully take place, even though we all full-well know that it's going to happen. There's this constant theme of "unless something miraculous happens, we're going to have to cancel the whole thing." It's regulatory, technological, personnel, equipment, etc., etc., etc. This happens over and over and over. I understand that there are countless challenges to the project, but the way these are presented kind of drives you mad since you know that experimental crash ultimately DID happen and was more-or-less successful. Obviously, if it hadn't happened, why would they be making a television program about a project that never came to fruition?
2. Because this was originally a commercial-break riddled broadcast, there is recap after recap after recap every time the program comes back from the breaks. I'd say that at least 40% of the program content is recapping what they just went though, so it's a massive waste of time.

Discovery needs to re-edit this to make it watchable, and they would be doing everyone a favor if they got rid of the "pending failure" narrative.

I was a cultural anthropologist and found this particular video extremely good. My 9 year old grandson was full of questions about the rise of humans. One thing this video gives and does so well is show how long the period of time is between each phase. For the first time he began to understand that specific people don't suddenly change but that species adapt to their environment. He is still struggling with concept that early humans were just as intelligent as today's populations. We could no more survive in their environment than they could survive in ours. We are not more progressive just more complex.

The show is an hour long, but most of the time is spent explaining how the project got started and all the difficulties the crew went through in terms of getting the project to work. To make matters worse, the editors displayed these difficulties in a suspenseful manner, as if to convince us, the viewers, that we do not know how the episode is going to end. Finally, the crash scene and the results take only about 10 minutes to show and explain, which take away from the significance of the experiment.

I loved this documentary that took four years to produce. It's very suspenseful in how the plane crash was planned and how the production team had to overcome so many obstacles. It was a great research experiment by several PhDs to determine what are the safest seats in an airplane and how to make planes safer.
