This series tries to weave together series of events that claim to connect things together. These rediculous episodes are a disappointing platform to show off the writer's creativity a-la "Mr. Peabody's Improbable History Lesson".

From the cover art (and having just seen "How It's Made" for the first time) I was expecting something that shows the inner-workings of a technology, which it does not.

I would suggest if someone wants to see technology associated with the everyday stuff around us, the watch "How It's Made" instead. Maybe someday someone will produce a series that really does show us how stuff works.

I was sure happy to have this as my grandson is getting older and it is hard to find things he wants for Christmas or birthdays. This was on his list and he seemed pleased. So thank you, Carolyn
