When I think History Channel I think Modern Marvels. In a strange way it is very addictive. You learn so much you just want more and more. You could watch a marathon of this and not notice that hours have passed by. It covers everything from entertainment to architectural achievements to politics. It is so explanatory and at the same times it gives you a time line of whatever the show is displaying. What makes this show so great is that it could cover any topic including ones I'm not interested in and make me interested. This show at times has compelled me to research further to extensively learn about something for myself. A great show that does not base its episodes on speculation but on facts and examines and investigates them as well. I couldn't ever imagine this being taken off the air.
