DEAN OF INVENTION is like a field trip to the future. The inventions seen here may one day seem commonplace, but today they seem just short of magic. Kamen and Colan are excellent companions as they explain how these things work and why they are important -- they make the seemingly impossible come across as well within the grasp of modern scientists. It's fascinating and fun, and might even inspire a few young viewers to become inventors.

Did we miss something on diversity?
