    I really like the show.

    They did an awesome job of illuminating the very nuts and bolts of operations - the way they slowed down super-fast machinations and showed exploded views of equipment and such.

    The only quirk I had with it, which has improved dramatically over time, was the voice-over writing. It used to be almost quaint and amateurish.

    Fun and educational, what's not to like about the show.
