Get that idiot off the screen!!!
16 August 2009 | by CherryBlossomBoySee all my reviews

This show was about... I forgot... Trains?... Yes! Trains! I had to make sure, because while I was trying to watch it I thought it was about a ridiculously ecstatic troll going under the name of Matt Bown.

Matt Bown hosts this potentially interesting show about all kinds of trains and manages to singlehandedly ruin every single moment of it with his screen presence. It's an enigma and I admit I've never seen anything like this except in parodies.

So, it's the train show and we get to see how the trains are designed, how the railroad infrastructure works and how railroad workers get on about their business. Then comes in this little neurotic creature and screams in the camera how "it's all awesome!!!". Speed train reaches top speed - "oh my god it's awesome". A crane loads the cargo onto the freight train - "oh my god it's awesome". A worker tightens a bolt on the rail - "oh my god he tightened the bolt, it's awesome". Then they let him operate a vehicle... and a normal viewer switches the channel.

Matt must have proverbially escaped from some asylum for overworked neurotic geeks. I just don't understand why he chose this show for his therapy and how the producers let him. Enigmatic. But not more enigmatic then the what is a contemporary train show doing on History Channel.
