Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (1):

This educational reality show/docuseries highlights the process by which high-tech vehicles are designed, built, and tested. Because most of them are intended for military use, the Howes offer limited (but clear) explanations about each vehicle's design. They also give a lot of insight into what these vehicles can help the military accomplish -- and how they can keep soldiers and other military personnel safe while they're being operated.

Some of the Howes' explanations are a little dry, but these moments are offset by the testing portion of the show, which usually includes detonating explosives and exposing both vehicles and crash dummies to a variety of war-like simulations. There's definitely some drama, too, especially when team members begin to crack under the pressure of meeting tight deadlines. Overall, Howe & Howe Tech probably won't appeal to everyone, but viewers who are into robotics and/or high-tech inventing will definitely find something worthwhile here.
