Great job! I had a blast watching the special! I enjoy Modern Marvels
format and I thought they did a great job here as well. Sure, it would
be great to have the time to inlay much more detail, but still, the show
was interesting and as David pointed out, I was impressed with their
attention to giving credit to Tesla for his inventive spirit and how
that spirit changed our world. I think they really drove that aspect
home to the crowds enjoying the show.
The bicycle analogy was too cool! Got a real kick out of that. Really
enjoyed Sam's glass shattering demo as well.
Kudo's to all of you involved!
There are probably some on the TCML that missed it. Will they be running
the special again soon?
