Discovery Premieres Heavy Equipment Reality Game “Machines of Glory” This Weekend
Coming from the “what will they think of next?” department is a new competition program from Discovery Channel revolving around heavy equipment called Machines of Glory. The three-episode series, airing consecutively on Sunday, December 30th at 4PM, features three teams of professional machine operators using their machines and vehicles in a variety of challenges to make it to the end, claiming the $12,000 prize. Over the three episodes, challenges will be seen such as using backhoes to annihilate piñatas, maneuvering a maze with a backhoe, operating an excavator as precisely as possible and destroying automobiles with dozers. In a genre where there is a lot of sameness, one thing that can safely be said about this program is that it is different and unique. If big machines and implements of destruction are your thing, you might want to tune in. We have a preview below, where the competing crews use a telehandler to launch barrels into stacked objects, Angry Birds style.
