Educational
13 December 2012 | by ebiros2See all my reviews

I was wondering how some of the things featured in this series was made. Then I found this series, and learned how they're actually made. Showing how things are made on video is ideal way to learn how it's done. The show keeps it short and sweet - just perfect for us laymen to get the information we need.

I can think of at least a dozen episodes of exact items I wanted to learn how they're made, like drill bits, sugar, salt, ham, soy sauce, tofu, rum, needles, gears, magnets, bike chains, injection molds, batteries, and coffee. There's no other series that you can pick up so much information in one place, and the producer did an excellent job of compiling, and presenting the information in an entertaining way. Some episodes gave great overview for the kind of manufacturing that needs to be setup for a new business, which the information would have been difficult to obtain otherwise.

I rate this one of the best educational series on television along with Anthony Boudain's "No Reservations". I'm eternally grateful to the producers of this show for producing such an informative show.
