I’m a huge fan of the Science Channel but it’s hard to be excited about their new geek program called “Catch It, Keep It”. The object is for the contestants to prevent something of value like a Les Paul guitar or vintage Harley from being destroyed. If they can Macgyver a solution in 2 days, they keep the item and if they don’t, it’s destroyed. The underlying message is that if you can afford it, you can destroy it. Not very Jubbling.
How about a different kind of test of problem solving where contestants compete and the object is the same but it’s WITH an item of little or no value. If they are successful, they get the guitar or motorcycle and if they are not successful, they get caned by the hosts’ or maybe branded with the show’s logo. That would be entertainment.
