One of my favorite documentaries!! Doesn't make you a fan of GM. Ford or Toyota for that matter.

GMs bailout should have required that they mass produce an affordable plug in car. They've already done the R&D and have proved that it can be done.

Darnit. Would be nice to see it on the 'regular' Discovery channel. I've got my cable, but I don't bother with anything beyond the basic channel package.

I'll definitely have to check that out tonight. Hopefully none of my family will be watching anything else in the living room, cuz the upstairs tv doesn't get that channel.

I've seen it a bunch of times already, but I'll it watch again tonight because it's so good. Thanks for letting us know it's on.

Hey Zyzzyx, watch the movie here http://www.youtube.com/user/alldayga.../9/34KcMQvFpEE

it's better than not watching it at all

Definitely was a good documentary. My mom watched it with me and she liked it too. It was funny how we both thought the same thing that if GM had kept these cars going maybe they wouldn't have had the problems that they did over the past year.

I know right!

"The Science Channel" is the same way.

OK I just finished watching it. I love it

I want to purchase it on DVD if all possible?

So much information to ponder I can't even sleep
