About the show

Anyone who has seen "The Wizard of Oz" knows that an oncoming tornado is nothing to trifle with, but "extreme filmmaker" Sean Casey takes viewers right into the heart of Tornado Alley and inside the storms themselves to capture valuable research data and unprecedented footage.

Opening Pursuits

In the beginning of the show, the science team, led by Joshua Wurman, and the TIV team, led by IMAX filmmaker Sean Casey, are displayed and new technologies are explained. Sean explains how he has tried to gain an IMAX shot from inside a tornado for the past eight years. As the chase season starts, the TIV attempts to intercept a supercell near Hereford, Texas, before hearing that an EF2 rated tornado has hit Tulia, Texas. The TIV then tries to intercept a tornado at night (without filming) and succeeds near Stafford, Kansas.

A Dangerous Ride

The Storm Chasing team is chasing again after a slow period in the eight-week tornado season. The team is chasing in the Texas Panhandle where a monster supercell threatens the TIV team as they try to intercept the cell. The team misses and chases into Kansas, where a supercell explodes producing multiple tornadoes near Protection, Kansas. Once again, however, the team fails to intercept the storm.

Tornado Aftermath

As the teams try to chase a supercell near La Crosse, Kansas, they hear that an EF5 tornado has struck the town of Greensburg, Kansas (the first tornado in eight years to be given this rating). Before this happened the team chased a cluster of storms in South Dakota. At the same time, Howie Bluestine manages to intercept a cell near Woodward, Oklahoma. Sean and Josh hear about the Greensburg tornado while in Hays, Kansas after a long and costly chase day.

Direct Hit

In the final weeks of the season, Sean is desperate to get the shot he is trying to achieve. A tornado forms earlier than expected and nearly touches down near Woodward, Oklahoma. In the middle of the episode, the TIV breaks down and the team loses two valuable days chasing. On the last day of the season, all the teams are on the verge of defeat when a cell erupts near Nickerson, Kansas. The TIV manages a valuable intercept and gives Joshua Wurman vital data.

Tornado Intercept Tank

In the second season, Sean and Josh unveil new scientific equipment to try to get the perfect shot. Sean unleashes TIV 2. Josh unleashes DOW 6 and two new vehicles, Probe 1 and Probe 2. The members of Tornadovideos.net are joining the chase, although not working with Sean and Josh. As TIV 2, the DOW and all the probes are finished, Reed Timmer Joel Taylor and Chris Chittick . from Tornadovideos.net get chasing into Tornado Alley Texas and immediately get pounded by a hail storm. The TIV finally gets moving, and manages only 50 miles before the back axle of the TIV gets split. A supercell appears on radar and nearly gets intercepted by Josh Wurman and his probes while the TIV gets fixed.

When Parts Fly

The TIV's axle is still in two pieces but soon, the whole team is back in action. Reed and Joel (along with Reed's girlfriend Jene Young) intercept a supercell near Lamesa, Texas. The team (Tornadvideos.net) nearly get struck by lightning and nearly catch a violent tornado. The TIV, while chasing in Texas, near Amarillo, loses two of its ten tires. A stone gets caught in the brakes and TIV 2 is out of action again.

Mutiny on the Plains

As the season continues, Reed meets up with Sean and Josh while chasing in Kansas. Josh tries to wait and get good data, but Sean is not happy with Josh's decisions. Sean takes TIV 2 for a spin as he (and Reed) try to intercept in Arkansas. Despite this, Sean cannot catch the Arkansas cells. Reed had driven throughout the night to intercept a supercell late in the day. Josh confronts Sean the next day after the break-up the night before. They revisit Greensburg, Kansas, after getting destroyed by the EF-5 last year.

Nightmare on Dow Street

Six problems with TIV 2 makes Sean abandon it. He decides to go back with the original TIV and it makes a heroic return. Reed chases just 20 miles away from a deadly tornado in England, Arkansas while Stuttgart, Arkansas gets destroyed as an EF-3 rips through. The science team and the TIV are trying to intercept the storm in Stuttgart. While chasing, Josh gets a disturbing call as a line of supercells forms just 50 miles from their overnight position. The science team is in Stuttgart when the tornado forms and the team is now being chased. The TIV intercepts the tornado, just after the DOW (Doppler on Wheels) crosses the path of the twister.

Road Hazards

The DOW team is in crisis as the radar refuses to work. Justin Walker, the lead forecaster in the team, scoops the team up. Meanwhile, the scout team, led by Danny Cheresnick and Aaron Rupert, struggle to escape a ditch before a tornado forms and bears down on them. Josh tries to fix the DOW and only figures out what it is, too late in the day for any chasing.
