Duct Tape Saga

I recently watched this show. Think its definitely great. Although while watching the first episode of season one the kids made a duct tape parachute and it was busted because the chute wouldn't stay open. However, I believe it could be confirmed if there was a way to control the chute. If they some how made it so that buster could control the maneuvers of the chute it would stay open long enough to have a safe landing. I wish I could some how get this review to Adam Savage. So he could look further into this. All in all a good show and definitely more kid related.

Great, educational show!

I have 2 girls (10 and 8) who love this show! We are fairly conservative with language in our house. I think I may have heard some milder words used like "crap" or "oh my god." There are explosions, but neither kid gets scared by it. As a parent, I really recommend it!
