The parts with Phil and at the Cigarette plant were great. I knew it would be narrated in layman terms, have simplified mechanical info and that was fine.

What bothered me was the stereo typical snide remarks from the narrator. The "toys of kings and drug smugglers" and "at $700,000 you may have to rob a bank but at least you can out run the cops" quotes were just the obvious ones. There were many other subtle references as well. Over all it showed well but presented from a typical outsiders point of view.

and they showed 700's while talking about 1075/1350's.
The videos were Cig videos from their youtube channel, all of the running boats were 3-4 years old but I am not sure about the boat Phil was running.

Who was the guy that was shown at the Cig factory?

I know, I was laughing about that too...talking about 1350's and you could see 700sci on the side of the blower oh yeah and 1350's are turbo motors

I'm pretty sure the boat Phil was running was the 42x he had at the Fort Lauderdale boat show last year with 700's and NXT's.

Overall interesting, good watch...but too short!

I can't believe no one commented on the fact it was followed up by Breitling watches!

That show always leaves a little to be desired. If you're a fan on "Modern Marvels" then this show pales in conparison. Brief look at an over view of products is really all the show is. I always find myself asking "well where do they get those parts?" or "how's the build process for that part?" it's frustrating.

Nonetheless, Philly looked good, represented Cig well and it was great seeing cig on the silver screen.
