Enthralling documentary series
4 December 2014 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

Air Crash Investigation is a documentary series that takes an in- depth look at what happens in the accident, what happened after the accident, what the investigators to scrutinise the accident and how air safety improves after the accident so that they can prevent the same event from reoccurring.

It is a good series if you are interested in aviation or want an enthralling documentary. It is not only a good series for those reasons alone, it can also be a good way to develop the skill of going in- depth with a variety of things, like if you see a negative review on a series or movie that has a lot of positive reviews on IMDb, yet get more unhelpful responses than helpful responses, possible reasons include: gigantic fanbase (like the Japanese animation fanbase with series Cowboy Bebop in the United States) or people that cannot take a negative review of predominantly positive reviews or vice versa (like people seeing a positive review of anything Barney the Dinosaur will go off in a raging fit).

If you are a person who has a fear of flying, avoid this television series at all costs!
