DamnedIfIKnow. I know this might sound trite (and certainly shows my vintage) but I thought "MacGyver" did that rather well. "Numbers" makes a decent attempt today. 

"Junkyard Wars" wasn't awful; sort of a reality TV version of MacGyver. Or perhaps it was what reality TV might do today with "MAKE" magazine. "MythBusters" is not terrible.

But I'm a left-brain techy (IT professional for thirty years) so I'm hardly qualified on the creativity side.
