Car of the Future coming to NOVA

This seems like it ought to be good. I listen to Car Talk and I watch NOVA, why shouldn't the two of them be great together?

Next on NOVA: "Car of the Future"

Tuesday, April 22 at 8 p.m.

Tom Magliozzi has a problem. The wacky co-host of NPR's Car Talk needs to replace his beloved 1952 MG roadster. But in today's car market, where should he turn? Is new technology about to transform the way we drive? Tom and his brother Ray hit the road in NOVA's "Car of the Future" for a lighthearted but shrewd take on America's four-wheeled future. Join them as they mix their trademark slapstick with serious nuts-and-bolts analysis of what it will take to make our autos more energy-efficient.

I don't even have to plan ahead as all new episodes of NOVA are recorded and waiting for me on the DVR by default.
