This show is okay at most points, but tries to be too dramatic when describing how the entire world is basically filled with these disasters just waiting to happen everyday. It's understandable that there are certain dangers in everyday life, but to make claims that all homes and buildings in the US are at risk to the same type of sinkholes found commonly in Kentucky and Florida is just outrageous. These are the types of claims that this show frequently makes at the end of every "engineering" disaster. The quotation marks are placed there because there are some disasters that are just natural disasters and really have absolutely nothing to do with any fault through engineering, such as the mudslide episode.
As other reviewers have mentioned, the audio was out of sync by several seconds in episode 3 although I didn't notice it in any other episodes. One final irritation from this show was also in episode 3, where one of the disasters covered was about an aircraft...
Great show, but as of 4/28/2015, 2 of the 3 episodes have a problem with the video matching up with the audio (about a 1 second lag on the audio). Enough to be an annoyance, but not enough to make me stop watching. Problem appeared on both Chrome and Roku 2 XS.
Edit (5/10/2015): This problem appears to have been resolved. Also, in episode 2, the location of Indianapolis was correctly moved from Ohio to Indiana on the on-screen map.
love this show, but the audio in episodes gets unwatchably out of sync a few minutes into it.
