Machines! is a detailed, entertaining and "wow-fact" series on how machines work. By using photo-real computer animation, we are able to go where no camera can fit, or even survive. Entertaining, engaging, and easy-to-understand commentary untangles complex design and engineering for all ages, while having some fun along the way.

Keep em comin'
Keep shows like this coming. I don't watch TV, so video on-demand is my only option. Sci Ch on iTunes sadly lacks many of the titles on the actual Channel.
Good show to watch on Discovery Science Channel
After I Watched the very first episode of Machines! I was amazed by how they used photo-real computer animation and explain every detail how the machine works like for example the pin setter machine and they use computer animation and show you the real machine with a good camera view to see how it works in real time. So if you want to know how our machines work this show is so cool you'll be amazed and how every machine is explained and how it works and I recommend this to anyone.
