Did anyone catch Smash Lab last night? Yesterday was supposed to be the sneak preview. Was it any good?

Like I posted in the thread about Inventor Nation, I can not believe that there are not more Inventors commenting about his show.

MythBusters Re-Invented themselves as Smash Lab which is all about Inventing.

They Invent things to Scientifically Prove or Disprove if something works or doesn't work or how & why it works or doesn't work.

The Episode I liked was the one where they took a mobile home & covered it with Carbon Fiber Material to see if it could stand up & hold together to Hurricane Force Winds.

The only thing I did not like is the fact that they put a Plywood Shell over the mobile home before they put the Carbon Fiber Material on the mobile home.

It would have been a more Scientific Test if they just made a Small Wooden Structure Identical to a mobile home & then put the Carbon Fiber Material over that Structure to see if it would hold together.

The other thing I did not like was the fact that there was NO open areas or weak points on the mobile home & that they used so much glue to holding on the Carbon Fiber Material that it made a Rock Hard Shell over the Mobile home.
