New York City production company 1stAveMachine will be making their first foray into television with the new show ThingamaBob on H2, featuring “longtime 1stAve collaborator and director Bob Partington as he turns three historically linked items into amazing contraptions.”
You can think of the show as something of H2′s answer to the popularity of programs like Discovery Channel’s MythBusters. If the above trailer is any indication, it should be full of explosions and lots of fun gadgets. We’re not sure how much the historical link between the items will factor in, but it should keep things interesting, and the program seems pretty entertaining regardless. Keep an eye out for the show this weekend: it debuts Saturday, January 18th, at 10 PM on H2.
