Best Show on TV...hands down!
31 December 2001 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

This is far and away the best show on TV today. Each show's format is the same: take 2 teams, give them an object to build, and let them loose in a junkyard. They are allowed to use anything they find in the junkyard, but they only have 10 hours to complete the build. Previous challenges have included: hovercrafts, canons, fireboats, and even steam powered cars! Given the fact that the teams have only 10 hours, and all the parts are built from scrap, it often leads to some very entertaining competitions on race day.

This show combines several elements that make the show entertaining to people of all demographics...While this program showcases competition and humour, it is truly an educational show deep at heart; however, it is so subtle and fun that you do not realize that you are learning while watching.

Whether you are 7 years old or are 70, trust me, you will love this show!
