Retro Wash

Rummage around in your garage. You'll likely find remnants of gadgets past - a typewriter, analog TV, LPs, film cameras and brick-sized mobile phones. These products served us well and we remember each one with nostalgic fondness. We'll take a trip down memory lane to examine how these oldies-but-goodies worked and find out how more advanced tech superseded them. At the Palm Corporation in Sunnyvale, California, we'll follow the evolution of hand-held tech. At the Houston Chronicle, we'll learn how the print edition of a major American newspaper coexists with its online edition.

Car Wash

Americans hit the car wash 2 million times a day--at a cost of $25 billion dollars a year. From tunnel systems to in-bay automatics, we'll go beyond the suds to see how car washes are built to clean. We'll get wet inside the largest car wash in the U.S.--a seven acre mega facility complete with a dog wash, chapel, and barber shop. We'll head to a car wash manufacturer where electric eyes are trained, auto conveyers are built, and mega vacuums suck up bowling balls. We'll learn some tips on how to clean our cars at home. Watch as we plaster a $160,000 Porsche with tar, glue, egg, bird droppings, and a bucket full of sludge... and then challenge a detailer to get it off. Cleaning radioactive waste from a train? No problem, if you go to the Energy Solutions rail car wash. Then, it's off to see how car manufacturers design and build vehicles to survive the car wash.

Dogfights

Jev Vs Jet

In the skies above North Korea, a new kind of air war is raging at 500mph...jet vs. jet dogfighting for the first time in history. American pilots bravely pit their F-86 Sabres against Communist MiG-15s. They will re-define air combat in pursuit of a previously unknown glory...the title of "Jet Ace." Their missions are fraught with peril. The new jet aircraft fly at nearly twice the speed of the piston-driven fighters of WWII. At edge of the speed of sound, life or death is decided in fractions of a second and tactics have to evolve quickly to meet the break-neck pace of jet combat. On May 20, 1950, Capt. James Jaraba rushes headlong into combat despite a malfunctioning jet. He claims his fifth and sixth victories in the resulting dogfight, becoming the first American ace of the jet age.

Alaskan Fishing

The Alaska Ocean is the largest factory-fishing boat in the US fleet. The crew's mission: hunt down, catch and process 300 tons of Alaskan Pollock each day on the unforgiving waters of the Bering Sea. We travel with them on the last voyage of a long and grueling season. The crew reveals the inner workings of one of the most sophisticated and complex vessels afloat. It is half fishing boat, half floating factory, processing and flash freezing Alaskan Pollock as fast as its crew can catch it. To meet their seasonal quota of Pollock, the crew must overcome obstacles of weather, mechanical dangers aboard the sea-tossed ship and the wiliness of the fish themselves. Captain Scott Symonds takes us inside the amazing ultra-modern world of high stakes commercial fishing where a wrong decision on his part can cost not just the season's catch, but also the lives of his crew.

Storm Chasers

Twister Twilight Zone

Reed is so excited to use his new probe cannon that he has trouble perfecting his aim when he's confronted with a series of tornadoes. While he does succeed in getting a probe into a tornado, the tornado carries the probe too far and the team is unable to retrieve it. While Tim is away, the TWISTEX team weathers some strange atmospheric occurrences in South Dakota and gets pinned between two violent twisters but get out safely. Sean and Josh Wurman agree that TIV2 may continue operating, but only if it maintains a 75-mile distance from VORTEX2, which leads to frustration when both teams target the same storms with VORTEX2 actually switching storms to Sean's after taking one storm, forcing Sean's team to back off when they had a good chance at an intercept.
