Kids say: Not yet rated

This informative series deconstructs different machines used around the world to reveal how and why they are marvels of engineering. It offers some simplified explanations about how each one works and highlights what makes them unique. In some cases, it also discusses how the machine is serving a need in society. Throughout it all, viewers get to watch as engineers, pilots, sailors, and other key figures operate and maintain this machinery. Mega Machines won't appeal to everyone, but viewers of all ages who like building, engineering, and unique, larger-than-life vehicles will find it's a worthy watch.
