Good to see the bracing at night, great shot

This angle is VERY impressive indeed

And podium is rising well

That night shot is just jaw dropping. I have to agree with CULWULLA the cross bracing with the lighting looks amazing. Imagine what it will look like when SWFC is all complete.

The Discovery program was very good yesterday. The host is a character, and his fear of heights and interactions with the workers were very entertaining. The educational aspect was also well done. It's worth going out of your way to see.

That's funny. It is EXACTLY because of those reasons that I HATE the shows he hosts for Discovery. That guy ruined Extreme Engineering for me and he make Build it Bigger unwatchable too.

I saw it, the show was interesting. But they really could have hired a better host for the show. He is not the best man for the job. I wish they hired the host of "Dirty Jobs" for this Build-it-bigger program. Another thing; he kept calling SWFC the next WTB. I wonder where he got his information.

Considering that he graduated from Harvard with a degree in architecture, I'm pretty sure he's more qualified for the job than the guy from Dirty Jobs.

And yeah, it's strange that they kept saying it's the world's tallest.
