A really interesting show
9 July 2014 | by ian959See all my reviews

I recently managed to catch a couple of episodes of 'World's Toughest Fixes' whilst traveling overseas and I found them really amazingly interesting. This is the sort of thing that I wish I saw more often on TV - it might actually get me back to watching TV!

The presentation is a nice balance between educating and entertaining and provides a fascinating insight into how some things that we probably never ever think about are actually fixed when they go wrong. It has a nice blend of human interest involved too, revealing some of the characters behind the jobs.

I caught 3 episodes of the show - plus the repeats that pad out the National Geographic Channel programming from day to day - and even when watching the repeats there was still something I missed the first time round.

I wish there was more TV like this around.
