Discovery Channel “Tornado Rampage 2011”

5 June 2011

This show is on Discovery Channel right now. I watched it right up to the point that I knew that the show had no credibility.

A woman was being interviewed about a tornado striking her business. She says “and that’s when the building exploded”. The sound track went silent for about a quarter second, and then there was the sound of an explosion, from a bomb or something.

OK, that’s just not credible. Building do fly apart in tornadoes and other wind events, but they don’t EXPLODE. That’s the same sort of phony editing that has every lightening strike having a same-time loud thunder sound, whether the strike is across the street or on the horizon.

Tornadoes are impressive and frightening enough. Why do producers have to add bullcrap into the mix?
