More gross than educational
12 December 2000 | by (Toronto,Ontario) – See all my reviews

This program gives kids a bird's eye view into how things like computers and machines work and how things are made. It is colorful, fast paced and appears to have a higher budget than many Canadian-produced TV shows do. The two teenage hosts go all over North America to visit factories and research centers for their reports. Some of them are quite interesting though a bit complex for young kids to understand. The show however seems to have a fixation on the grungier side of things. One segment for example showed how manure is manufactured into fertilizer and actually showed a cow defecating (definitely not a pretty sight!) The show also features a man (Charlie Powell) in between the news segments, doing home made science experiments. In one show, he demonstrated to kids how to make homemade boogers! (now that's educational!)
