American Inventor: Episode 1, Episode 2

Mini Review: This is American Idol but for people with crazy inventions. Which makes sense because it's produced by Simon Cowell. I like the inventions and the pitch part of the program but there is so much of the emotional aspect of the show that kind of annoys me. It's pretty good though. I'm interested to see where these invention go, and how many of these will end up on an infomercial.

Burst Angel: Episodes 3-12 (look up the title if you’re really interested)
I watched the first couple episodes the other week, and they were pretty good. Now that I’m a little farther in the story is beginning to pick up. The animation style is fun and the theme song is weirdly good.

Mythbusters: Helium Football
