I've really taken an interest lately in the Discovery Channel's program, "How it's Made." Once upon a time I had an interest in learning both stained glass windows as a craft and glass blowing. Watched recent programs on both and decided it was way too much work and looked difficult. I love this channel and watch it daily. Do you also enjoy, "How it's Made"? What have you learned that you would like to share.

You are so lucky....until Cable is available in my area, we don't get all those wonderful channels....but I can assure you, when I visit my son, it's way up there on my things to watch! I do also like HGTV with a lot of the home/room make-over ideas. Cheers!

It's become one of my new, favorite tv shows. Fascinating. Maybe one day you will get cable again. Thanks for responding.

I love the Mythbusters and really loved seeing them do a guest appearance on CSI this season.

I love the Discovery Channel and that show too! You're right as far as I'm concerned. I took a class once in making stained glass and it was very hard. Now I know why it is so expensive! LOL

Oh no. That sounds to much like me. I am always asking my wife what happened in the shows that we watch because I am always falling to sleep during them.

I would have liked to have seen the glass blowing one. Is that on during the day or the evening? Have not seen how it's made on the Discover Channel, but something like it on the food channel. How different food are made.

The glass blowing was amazing. There was even a place for the glass blower to rest her chin as she did her job. It's on here atleast twice a day but both times are in the evening. You can probably pull up their website to see the local listing in your area. Thanks for responding.

Yes I love that show. I have learned a lot from watching it, I had no idea how many of those things are made. Great educational show.

We have watched "how its made" several time it is very interesting. See all the work that goes in to something that looks so simple! Give you a greater appreciation for things really.
