Greatest Show Ever!
30 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Anyone whoever has a chance to watch this show should! It is very entertaining. You need no scientific or engineering knowledge whatsoever...They cover every single topic: From movies and sex, to ships and storm, to terrorism and the military. Every topic is entertaining. You can watch the shows for FREE on the History Channel website. Any topic that has ever interested will be described in detail...the history and the future of the topics are covered. Some of the best episodes are the Engineering Disaster episodes. These episodes talk all about things that fail from the 1900's on. Watch this show...you will learn...and you will be entertained...
