Summary: Very disappointed in your recent ads, touting Shark Week as "the most wonderful week of the year." Do you realize there are 6 people on the N.C. coast who would disagree? It's the most insensitive thing I've ever seen on television. Shame on you, Dis
Review: Will never watch Shark Week again due to the callous insensitivity shown by this network.

Summary: Outstanding Channel
Review: I guess, the rest of America will perhaps argue that the Discovery Channel is better than it\'s ever been. No more monotone, repetitious documentaries like 15 years ago. Everyone I recognize loves the Discovery channel now. They\'re still educating people, but now in a joy and amusing way. Go read a history or research publications if you want boring and monotonous.

Review: You just got to love Discovery, i know i do! The site is like a lifesaver for me, cause my TV only shows Discovery in russian (understand only like two words). So i just go to their site and enjoy watching my favourite shows like Mythbusters and Storm Chasers. Just look at the site. It\'s awesome. No doubt, 5stars.

Summary: zige
Review: Cody McCasland bukanlah anak biasa. Ketika ia hanya 15 bulan, kondisi langka yang disebut sakral adalah Agenesis mengambil kaki. Tapi itu tidak berhenti Cody.
Beberapa bulan kemudian dia mendapat kaki palsu pertama dan sejak itu ia dapat bergerak hampir seperti anak-anak lain.
Ðe tidak bisa hanya berjalan, tetapi berlari, berenang, bermain sepak bola, golf, karate, hoki es dll Dia benar-benar inspirasi.

Dua hal dapat dipelajari dari foto-foto ini. Tidak ada yang mustahil, tekad dengan pandangan yang jelas diperlukan untuk mencapai target.
