    Aw, darn. I missed it. I would have cruised through the guide to see if there were episodes about anything that interested me. I like this sort of thing. Will check it out on Netflix. I like to go on the site and find stuff to put in my 'list' because I hate typing on the on-screen keyboard thingy. Then, when I go on my Roku3, I have stuff loaded. BTW, the Tivo Netflix app is still screwed up and slow. Last time I got too lazy to pull out the Roku and TV remotes, and went on the Tivo Netflix app, it freaked out my Tivo when I was done - Tivo restarted, then lost internet connection, and it sucked having to fix everything before I went to bed.

    I think I've seen a few episodes in the past but none of them stuck in my dismal memory bank.

    We've been watching this with our 5yo. I'm learning a lot and I forgot how much I loved this show.

    I visited Holland House Candles last week. Their episode hasn't aired in awhile.

    Not me. I've watched entire episodes but generally only watch segments that interest me.

    The show that really made my sleepy were the Visions shows formerly on HDNet (e.g. Visions of England). The scenery was always nice but the music and pacing was too soothing, for the lack of a better word. Often, I'd get very sleepy and start falling asleep. I'd always how the editors would stay awake doing their job w/that show.

    How It's Made has reached Gilligan's Island and Star Trek TOS status for me... I think I've seen every episode at least 3 times :D

    I do, absolutely. In fact, I use it specifically for this purpose when I have middle of the night insomnia. In my case, my brain is going in all sorts of different directions and it can't calm down enough to get sleepy. I think the linear nature of the narration and lack of plot in the show allows my brain to focus just on one thing or zone out and it can more easily transition to be sleepy. I'll be sleepy after the episode is over and then I'll attempt to replay it in my head when I get back to bed. That usually does the trick.

    I really find the nature of the show interesting. I'm fascinated about how things are made. So it's not that I find it boring or anything. But there is something about the format of the show which makes it easy to fall asleep to.

    His pronunciation of robot ("row-butt") is distracting.

    Hint: It's a Canadian production.
