My 11-year-old boys were glued to the screen -- me too! It's cut in a dramatic suspenseful way, and although the manipulation of the audience is pretty obvious, it's still supercharged and fun. The science and logisitcs of tornado-chasing were very interesting. Highly recommended.
I loved this series on season one but when season 2 aired, found a flaw that showed it is staged. The TIV intercercepted it's first tornado and in the drivers windo you can clearly see a white truck going past them while in the tornado. In the next frame the crew are in the same position and no truck was present. Very troubling that again Hollywood has to ruin a series I thought was truthful!
The same old type of stuff as on other shows: frustrations (in trying to film the interior of a tornado), personality conflicts, the Imax videographer is a nut case.
See it once, you've seen all the other reality shows. Boring!
