Massive Engines is a science documentary TV series from the Discovery Network hosted by British actor, Chris Barrie. Big engines and super sized manmade machines take the spotlight in this series, with Barrie starting the season by taking a look at some massive hole digging machines. The host heads to Caterpillar Inc. to see how the company's engineers make a machine that's the size of a two-story building.

Other supercharged machines that appear on the show include racing cars, airliners and even rocket powered bicycles. By mid-season, Barrie heads to Detroit, MI, to take a look at the combustible engine, where he learns from science engineers that the idea for the machine came from looking at antique cannons in action. By the end of the season, the show focuses on massive engines of the future, gazing at fictional designs for flying airships that also float on water and super-fast commuter trains.

A member of a rich British aristocratic family, Lara Croft is a "tomb raider" who enjoys collecting ancient artifacts from ruins of temples, cities, etc. worldwide, and doesn't mind going through death-defying dangers to get them. She is skilled in hand-to-hand combat, weapons training, and foreign languages - and does them all in tight outfits. Well, the planets of the solar system are going into planetary alignment (Which occurs every 5,000 years), and a secret society called the Illuminati is seeking an ancient talisman that gives its possessor the ability to control time. However, they need a certain clock/key to help them in their search, and they have to find the talisman in one week or wait until the next planetary alignment to find it again. Lara happens to find that key hidden in a wall of her mansion. The Illuminati steal it, and Lara gets an old letter from her deceased father telling her about the society's agenda (Her father was also the one who hid the key). Now, she must retrieve the key and find and destroy the talisman before the Illuminati can get their hands on it.
