Great Show

I think this show was great and had many interesting ideas. I would say it is probably better suited for older teenagers and adults, rather than younger children, unless your child is quite mature for their age. A show that can potentially spark innovative ideas in young people is always a good thing in my opinion. I hope one day we will actually see the technology featured on the show. I am very sad that it was cancelled after one season.
