    If it's going to be anything like their other "Science of _____" shows, it'll probably just be like

    "The Transformers have self-repairing nanomolecular armor. This is something that scientists are working on now"

    "Some Transformers have modular components, able to continue operating if the main part of them is badly damaged. This is something that scientists are working on now"

    "Optimus Prime has an Ion cannon. Ions are something that exists"

    Can't wait to watch it. I snuck a little peak at it during commercial breaks for my wife's shows and I really liked the way they created those pieces with that printer! Very cool! Makes me want to watch it even more now!

    Ah.. so it's more of a look at the reality of how Transformers could exist and function etc. That's actually pretty damn cool. I'll have to track the show down now. I'm pretty sick of behind the scenes stuff because they have mostly been the same since The Matrix (green screen, guy in front of computer, look at big $$ camera).

    This kind of has a Mythbusters'ish angle to it.

    All I saw was a crew make molds, do casts, then weld a big armature together.

    Don't get me wrong, as someone who does less complex work like that seasonally it was interesting, from a technical standpoint, but little more than that.
