So far on American Eats they have covered snack foods and food pioneers and have gone from the beginning to current.

Another oldie but goodie that used to run on TLC I believe, or maybe THC actually was "Connections" In this show the host spent 30 minutes detailing the connections to an end product from other inventions throughout time. Sometimes he could connect how say a transistor was made possible because of an invention 500 years ago.It was a domino effect circumstance, each invention and discovery worked on top of another. Another Great show.

I was just a little to young to have any memories of those shows. I used to watch them with my Dad. I do love PPS. Frount Line and Nova are excellent. I do not watch much of anything else other than sports and Girls Gone Wild. {JOKE}

The show was good as it gave the details of the very beginning of CO2 developments and how the Coca Cola became the most popular soft drink up until modern times.

I would have enjoyed another hour of the show giving details of regional development of smallar soda pop companies and their products, IMO.

All in all it was a good show. smile.gif

I, too, enjoyed the show - thanks for the heads up! However, I thought a more apt title would have been "The History of Coke and Pepsi" rather than the history of soda, as this seemed to be their primary focus. Oh Well!

Seemed pretty good...I put it on Tivo...after the Giants baseball game was over, I watched about 15 min. of the History Channel, and then had to go to sleep. It was past 10 pm, and my alarm is set for 5:30 am...Ill finish the show today.

I'm sure someone would have stepped in to fill the vacancy and then the show would be mostly about them.
