Discovery has announced that its series Storm Chasers will not be renewed. I’ve been asked for my opinion. Tim Samaras, one of the stars, talks about the show and its cancellation on his Facebook page here.
I thought the show had its good points and its bad points. The good was that it increased interest in severe weather and, hopefully, by showing their power made people respect them and more likely to find shelter when a tornado approached.
On the downside, the show had far too much manufactured “controversy” and made at least some people think tornadoes were easy to see and chase. The latter was dangerous.
I enjoyed watching an occasional episode and wish everyone involved well.
