Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The cable TV documentary series Now See This! relied heavily upon amateur home-video footage to bring the viewer face to face with a number of exhilarating and dangerous experiences. Risky stunts, accidents, freaks of nature, and last-minute rescues were par for the course on the series. In the opening episode alone, a man was shown paragliding into the Statue of Liberty, and a professional storm chaser found himself directly in the path of a twister. Debuting April 14, 2003, Now See This! was a presentation of the Discovery Channel.
