You'll Love Mike, 18 July 2006
Author: Robert W. Anderson (bayareabob@mac.com) from United States

I've been watching this show since its inception and have never been disappointed. Mike the Rowe the narrator and star of the show was a great choice for this or any show of this type. He's articulate, has a good voice for this narration and is very personable. He seems to really enjoy people, he interacts well with everyone he runs across. And manages pull out lots of interesting facts from average people who with out Mike's easy style might otherwise not be so at ease on camera. I've always enjoyed seeing how things work, and this show covers jobs and processes not usually covered on TV, or any other medium. Thanks Mike!
