Storyline

In the series 'Catch It, Keep It' three skilled engineers/builders must work together to win a valuable prize. The catch, in order to win their prize, the team must construct something that will save it from complete annihilation by our Engineer of Destruction. The contestants have just 48 hours to invent, plan and construct their prize saving device. If they can build something that will save it in time, they each win the prize. If they fail, their prize will be destroyed in front of their eyes.

Great science fun!!
8 February 2010 | by stopcallingmeshirleySee all my reviews

This show takes a prize (plasma TV, motor scooter, year's supply of omaha steaks, etc), applies a destruction mechanism (steamroller and boiling water flattening and cooking steaks, junk car launched at 40 mph towards TV), then gives three handymen/engineer types 48 hours to conceive of and build a defense of the prize. At the 48 hour mark, the destruction mechanism is enabled. If the prize comes through cleanly, the 3 contestants win the prize. If they fail, we all get to watch in awe as a $2,000 television is completely destroyed.

Oh, and while the contestants build their solution, the show's own engineer designs and builds his own solution (which typically varies widely from what the contestants have come up with). We also get to watch his protection design tested out.

This show is not just fun for the science / puzzle-minded adult, but I'd also recommend it for kids 10+. It is a great introduction to physics for youngsters.

I've seen every episode, and I'm waiting for the next season. PLEASE BRING US ANOTHER SEASON!
