Extreme Engineering 3 Seasons 2005

Season 3
4.4 out of 5 stars (38) IMDb 7.4/10

Extreme Engineering is the story of large-scale, 21st century construction projects. Building a new bridge or skyscraper, a tanker or a fighter jet involves ambitious designs, vast amounts on money and fraught tempers. Engineers, builders and architects attempt to deliver on time and to budget as the story and dramatic action arise from the project itself - a dream awaiting realisation.

This is a program about construction. There isn't even the slightest mention of the engineering that went into the design of the structure. No hint of the materials selection, stresses on components, design tradeoffs, etc. You never even see an engineer on site being asked questions as the structure is built.

Got this show series for my 10 year old son as he enjoyed watching programs on big building projects. The projects selected in this series seemed good, but the dramatized commentator was way over the top on the one show I watched over his shoulder for a few minutes. I almost sent the product back, but my son said he could look past this negative aspect.

This is a quintessential guy program, large complex construction jobs with a lot of engineering know how going into the design and construction. The first season was more silly, conceptual stuff, like bridges across the Bering Straight, or a tunnel under the Atlantic Ocean. This season is about real life projects - stuff that is (was) actually being built. Much better.

Every few years, some feminist will come out with an article in the New York Times, or some similar venue, making the argument that men are unnecessary. Watching a few of these episodes of Extreme Engineering will disabuse any reasonable person of that idea. Hardly a women to be seen - just guys doing what they do best - designing and building our world.

The whole family watches this and we range in ages from 6 - 65. Makes our creative juices flow. Some of these structures we have seen, now there are others we want to visit. Some basic knowledge of the why and wheres make the visiting of sites so much more awesome. Oh, we are all great at trivia games :)

Although the catch phrases on these shows get tiresome ("...but, there is a problem" must be repeated at least ten times per show), they are good quality productions that I've learned a lot from regarding the concepts of big-project engineering.

We're still watching this series. It's a great education in short and engaging episodes that will keep you glued to your screen and well-informed. Human ingenuity at its absolute best is on display here. You will marvel at the detail and effort in each edition of the series.

If you like to know how some really BIG things are made, then this would be the series you would best take the time to view. It is cool to see how bridges and tunnels and buildings come together.

this is good reality tv. some episodes had more intrigue and some had more drama. the interesting puzzles that the engineers conquered were worth the time parked in front of the screen
