Build it Bigger

Guys, new show premiering next Tuesday (a week from today) at 10PM on the Discovery Channel (amazing channel) called Build It Bigger with Danny Forster. It looks like a very interesting show and it is about stuff we all like, ok maybe not in Boston, but still about huge building projects which are mainly skyscrapers and towers.
Here is a little review about it:

Build It Bigger

From the skyscrapers of Dubai to the amusement parks of Minnesota, Danny Forster travels the world to break down the most astounding, complex engineering feats to date.

In Build It Bigger, airing Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT starting on July 10, architect Danny Forster takes you inside some of the most head-scratching builds in the world. Join Danny as he meets the men and women tackling the unique challenges of constructing the tallest buildings, the most effective military tanks, the largest luxury cruise ships, and the most extreme thrill rides.

How do you build a 3,113-foot-long wooden roller coaster in winter temperatures of minus 40 degrees? Or get your workers safely to and from a worksite on a skyscraper that's 1,614 feet above street level? Or dig a water tunnel ? along the San Andreas Fault and 1,000 feet below the earth's surface ? without it collapsing on itself ... or flooding? Our intrepid host answers these puzzles and more.

Don't miss the big stories behind these even bigger engineering marvels.
So ya it is gonna be a sick show, check it out, and for those who watch it, we can talk about it in this thread! Also do the poll after you've watched it.

Here is the link to the web page about the show and whatnot

just a heads up.

The episode titled "boot camp" has the host going through Boston construction sites. I only caught the tail end of the episode though, so i don't know if it was in Boston for the whole hour.
