Good Show
12 February 2003 | by (Iowa) – See all my reviews

I like watching Mail Call whenever it's on. R. Lee does an excellent job of answering probably every question you'd want to know about military technology, past and present. And when he answers a question, he's out there with the people who actually do the job, and sometimes even gives demonstrations himself. R. Lee's delivery style on this show always manages to bring a smile to my face, even though my mom didn't think much of it.
