Horrible episode. It did not explain or showcase real truck driving at all. No mention of weigh stations, CBs, truck stops, etc. First 10 minutes was a Brad Paisley commercial. Next 10 was a body shop commercial. Next 10 was a Ford commercial, and the last 10 was a Mack commercial lol.

I spent 40+ years working with the industries portrayed in these shows and have recommended them to friends with small children to promote a learning experience with bonding time. They have some quality time and it gives children knowledge of what is in the world to aspire to. This program and books (DVD) like the "The Ascent of Man by Jacob Bronowski" can give children a head start in life. These are adult level programs and require an adult to provide explanations.

This is one of several programs that explore engineering and construction projects that push the envelope in some way. Taller buildings, deeper tunnels, bridges with longer and wider spans using novel materials or newly- or specially-developed construction techniques are at the core of these programs. Other that run in the same vein are "Extreme Engineering" and "Build It Bigger".

Since childhood I've loved to know how things work, what they do, how big/small they are, etc. Modern Marvels meets that ongoing need—mostly—though many times I long for a more in-depth treatment. I would prefer not so much musical noise, though.

I love shows like this and I usually rate things fairly high. This show is just poorly produced. Everything about it feels cheap. The worst part of this season is they reuse past segments and try to pass them off as new.

This program takes a look at a common item that most of us that are not in a maintenance field rarely think about. This is a top notch, class A MM due to content and announcers. re uses some footage I had seen before but almost none. I have seen every MM aired and this is in the top 10% (not including Engineering disasters which are my favorite).

Here is a show that lets you see things you may not even know exists. I love to learn new things and to see wonders that you may not have any reason to even know was created to make a job easier. It may inspire you to creat something new give it a try
