The show is about a group of Inventors ( a Think Tank ) that have to compete in challenges coming up with solutions to a problem.

I watched it last season and it's a couple of guys who take an old patent that is interesting and try to make the invention and then they try and improve upon it. One show had a kids tricycle with lawnmower blades on the back as the patent they chose. They made it and found that it was impossible for a little kid to pedal due to the forces involved. They improved upon the idea by adding the blades to a mountain bike which allows lower gears to leverage the forces needed to turn the blades while cutting grass.

I saw the commercial the other night but couldn't remember the air date. It looked like it had potential.

I did not know the show was going to be repeats.

I watched it last night, it was lawn mower/bicycle. Seemed pretty weak.

Good premise, but executed horribly

The freakish hosts, the editing for the stupid, the retarded dialog, and the inane repetition makes me think that their target audience was apparently 5 year-olds, coma bound patients, people who have no arms or legs and cannot change the channel, and mongoloids.

My only hope is that the dude with the drug problem, probably a type of 'roids/meth/coke addiction, is that he got enough cash to buy some Crest Strips and is able to whiten his grotesquely yellow teeth.

As for the English guy, I dearly hope he came down from Canada into America one weekend to visit the World's Largest Ball of Twine and he was picked up in an INS raid as an illegal alien was deported and is barred from re-entry back into America. If maybe he was charged with crimes against America and got sent off to Guantanamo Bay for some "re-education" and maybe we don't hear nothing from him for maybe 20-30 years if you know what I mean...wink, wink, well then I wouldn't lose any sleep at night. Please don't call me a monster for putting into words what every single person who has ever seen this show has thought.

Also. That pudgy, bald headed guy who smells vaguely of grease, Old Spice, and milk who apparently got time off from doing oil changes at Jiffy Lube to be a "TV Star" makes your typical fat Guatemalan porn actor with a lobotomy look talented.

I have watched EVERY single episode. Why, you might ask? Because I had the wish that the fat guy would punch the English guy or better yet the drug guy for some vague "homo-erotic crime" committed in his shop. Since this has NOT happened to date, I can only hope this show is renewed.

Thank you.
