You start out saying you know nothing about the show, then you ask if
they've advanced beyond adolescents, then you say you have your answer
about the show. Obviously, you know SOMETHING about the show, but wish
to remain ignorant about it while condemning it.
I actually HATE TV, but that's what TiVo is for!
Cramming 2 hours of what you REALLY want to watch into an hour or so
at bed time. When you doze off, it's easy to pick it up again later.
No BS, no commercials, what you want, when you want it. TiVo makes TV
Certain shows can actually have some value. I actually get a great
kick out from some of the problem solving trains of thought on
Mythbusters, as well as Carrie's butt. <G>

Some of the best shows are when they aren't all that successful. I
like the way they share what went wrong. Did you happen to see the

I also like when they occasionally share the "You guys are morons!"
It is a show on Discover channel.
It is fun, backyard science as imagined by two hollywood special effects
It ain't hard science. But it does addres many popular myths in a hollywood

Speaking of said Powermatic - did anybody catch the episode where they built
a mock-up of the Ark of the Covenant? First the builder is shown fondling
the wood in his truck. "Oooh, look at this beautiful wood!" In the next shot
he's pushing wood through the saw using his entire body weight and smoke is
billowing off the blade. All of the finished pieces were blackened.
Just imagine all the things that have been shoved through that saw. Steel,
plastics, meat and bone, and who knows what else. I would imagine that
blade is about as thrashed as it could be, and probably won't get changed
until it breaks. It just needs to make it through the material, doesn't need
to be pretty to get busted up.
