I was very disappointed with this compilation made by Discovery Channel. This looks like it was put together with a camcorder. The visual quality is worse than VHS !

You'll find better on YouTube because all they did was put together some clips with commentary and music. Give this a pass.

Series of documentaries that suffer from the usual Discovery Channel problems: much rapid edit shots and pointlessly overwrought music score. Material like this is best put into the hands of directors and editors who understand how to use restraint in their work. The final two documentaries, dealing with building collapses and explosions, at least work somewhat well, but the others drag the collection down. In particular, one sequence focusing on a magic trick gone wrong seems to go on forever and in fact seems to be little more than what the "magician" in question would have deserved. Another documentary in the group is filled with short rapid fire video clips, many of which amount to "pay attention to me" stunts that backfire. In the end, the negatives outweigh any positives, and the entire collection provides for a pretty compelling argument not to watch the Discovery Channel.
