Content familiar - Narration ridiculously stilted
27 February 2010 | by (Arlington, VA) – See all my reviews

We've seen a proliferation of manufacturing "behind-the-scenes" programs in the past few years. They often cover the same products and processes, varying the focus and/or duration when covering different steps. I could swear some shows reuse footage, but I don't know.

When it comes to content, "Factory Made" falls into this same pattern. They cover some new ground, yet also re-hash products covered in other series. One welcome item that they have introduced in their production is the addition of occasional informational graphics. Used sparingly, but effectively, they provide extra information without really interrupting the exposition of the process.

The problem with this show is the stilted narration. Sentences are often stopped midstream in an annoying rhythm, not corresponding with expected hesitation points or durations. For example, "This is the kind ---- of sentence ---------that - might be heard." The narrator, Zach Fine, has done much better narration for "How It's Made," so one wonders how the narration ended up in this format.

All things considered, this show does not do enough to differentiate itself positively in a rapidly populating genre.
