[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I watched the first two episodes (they showed them back to back).

So far, I like it. Doesn't portray structural engineers as anything but

and made an allen wrench from a machine bolt.

See if he can "propogate" and "increase the shear strength" of the warden's

So far, thumbs up! Better than 99% of the crap out there.
