I've seen the whole series too, and I agree, very good. The lady Ruth in the series is excellent the two guys are good, one is a bit bookish for the job at hand I thought, but still a great show. It was very good, I learned a lot as well, like the animal kill off, they slaughtered tens of thousands of pigs, sheep and cows because it takes a lot more to produce a pound of beef than a pound of cereal, or example. Milk was kept up, but many other animal, even the dogs that used to work the sheep farms were also deemed a luxury.
Lots of inventive ways the tried to do thing, but it was funny seeing the two professor types in the one episode trying to recreate a tool called a mole plow that would dig an underground channel to drain a wet field so they could use it for crops, when I saw what they were building I KNEW that it would NOT work Pretty obvious these guys were anthropologists not physicist or engineers I'll bet the farmers around the area would have figured it out. Still it's a good watch, lots to learn and it is entertaining for sure.
