Storyline

HowStuffWorks is about the stuff that makes the world go 'round. It's truly incredible to see the ingenious lengths people go to in order to extract rubber and iron, corn and wheat, and water and salt from the earth. Equally amazing is the number of different and varied products that can be derived from something so fundamental. Follow the incredible journey of these goods from the ground to your dinner table, car, closet, medicine cabinet and places you may have never imagined. Written by Anonymous

So horrible...
24 April 2013 | by (US) – See all my reviews

The first season of this show was decent, as a kind of knock off of 'How It's Made', but the second season dropped horribly in quality when they went from the production and history of various commodities to holidays and weather.

I wanted to bang my head into a wall with all the dubious, often specious or blatantly wrong conclusions about how something was pivotal in creating or guiding the outcome of something else entirely. Many things declared as fact were merely speculation or apocryphal, with no consensus among experts. And basically every Christmas connection was silly or so tenuous as to be ridiculous and one wonders why it was included at all.

Watch the show up to the episode 'Steel' and then stop. Even if the five final episodes might have some interesting kernels of truth it is not worth sorting them from the chaff.
