A Very Popular Show
11 August 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

"Popular Mechanics for Kids" was one of my favorite shows when I was younger. I watched it every Saturday morning at 7:30 for over a year.

I liked Tyler the host the best. He was funny, clever, and HOT! My favorite "Popular Mechanics for Kids" episode is the episode about Roller Coasters since I love to ride them. This showed me how they ran. I also liked the episode about ghosts. The part of that episode when they were hunting for ghosts actually scared me. Overall I really enjoyed this show. I sometimes still watch it on "Discovery Kids" when I get a chance too. I was sad to see it leave Saturday mornings since it helped me in Science class. I give this show 9/10 stars.
