Did anyone else watch this?

Its a new series on Discovery with Adam Savage. They've only shown one episode so far, but (with permission) built a suit of Iron Man armor out of 3D printed titanium (so it should have been Titanium Man armor!) and ran some tests on it. 

Obviously, it didn't have any tech in it, but they did make it fly. And Adam had a professional wear the suit for the flying.

It was very cool. The show is Mythbusters without the mythbusting and the other hosts. Adam Savage just can't keep away from doing what he does, which makes us all happier.

Of course, the "real" armor is made of super polymers, and has no iron in it...

(Brings back to mind my one complaint about the first movie: the public first sees the armor in red and gold--so why would anyone call him "Iron Man"?)

I watched it, it was quite interesting! The flight thing
made me think more of The Rocketeer than Iron Man, but
it`s cool that it`s a Brit pioneering it!
