This series is awesome. It explains the complex systems that make American life work. Things like our food system, transportation system, power and manufacturing. Not just by telling. But showing them in their entirety, in action, doing their everyday work.
Why oh why did they only made 4 episodes?
Yul Kwon is an intelligent and thoroughly engaging host. And there are so many rocks left unturned. Things like our water system, health care system, Wall Street system and (one particularly dear to my heart as a tax attorney), tax system. These are just a few. The concept is fantastic. The opportunities are endless. Somebody, please get this guy back in production.
