I sooo wanted to like this show!!! But I can't.
12 June 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This show is meant to highlight the good old American know-how and creativity by pitting truly brilliant engineers and people from other walks in life against each other to invent something.

Instead, I feel it demonstrates the issues we cause ourselves. It paints us as capable engineers whose efforts are instead wasted by whining and ego. I was excited to watch in the beginning of the show, then it quickly turned to shame.

I am frankly ashamed of the way our best and brightest react to being wrong, being challenged, or being under pressure. I saw the academic equivalent of what a fitness nut may see in an American special on morbid obesity. That's just pure shame.

There is an old saying: It's better to be silent and thought to be stupid, than to speak and remove all doubt.

What's the sad part? I was much happier and actually more "blissfully unaware" of the condition of America before... This was disturbing to watch.

PLEASE DON'T PUT THIS SHOW BACK ON THE AIR!
