"Bought this for my 8 year old son for Christmas. He loves the show and loved the DVD. Great purchase and very reasonably priced through Amazon."
Pursuing the Killers of the Plains

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Meteorologists have long wanted information about conditions inside tornadoes--they believe that a more thorough understanding of tornadoes would lead to longer warning times and saved lives.

This first (2007) season of the Discovery Channel's "Storm Chasers" tracks a brave team of scientists and an IMAX film maker as they traverse Texas, Kansas, and other locations in Tornado Alley in search of twisters. The scientists use radar to estimate where to plant their probes that obtain tornado data, and the series shows how much guesswork and frustration is inherent in storm chasing, as when the team missed the devastating Greensburg, Kansas storm.

However, the chasers do also have their moments of success in their pursuit of tornadoes, and the series would be of interest to any weather enthusiast."
Tornado Lover Paradise!

"This is the, unfortunately short, first season of the Discovery Channel series. It follows one of the most prominent meteorolgists while he chases tornadoes across Tornado Alley with the D.O.W. and his convoy. D.O.W = Doppler on Wheels. THe best part is the T.I.V owned by a long time IMAX film maker hopeing to finish his documentary. T.I.V = Tornado Intercept Vehicle. Sean and his two college buddies are trying to drive the T.I.V directly into the path of a tornado and get hit so Sean can get the final shot he needs for his documentary.

As you can imagine tempers fly along with parts of the T.I.V. There is even footage of the damage the day after the Greensburg tornado that wiped out the town. Once you fall in love with this very short first season you must purchase the second, much larger, season to feed your tornado chasing fix. This is a great, energetic series, and I wouldn't stop watching if I wanted to. Except when there was a marathon and I had to go to work. :("
