Another Popular Investigative Show
It sounds like the person writing the article hasn't actually watched the show. Lots of factual information but little description. The show does a good job of explaining scientific concepts and then applying them, without the show seeming dull or preachy. As with any Disney production, it's fairly good at appealing to a wide variety of ages. I can recall watching episodes of the show in high school, even, and enjoying it. It's great for there to be such a neat show on air getting people -- not just kids, excited about science!
As for Mythbusters, it's got a lot of flair, but they don't always explain the concepts behiind stuff. More explosions and shiny things and a bit less Science. Although I enjoy watching it, it bothers me when they say, after *one* test/experiment, that something has been "completely 100% disproven". That's not science.Barry's Response
- Thanks Ace: I have watched a few Bill Nye episodes with my kids and have enjoyed it quite well. Not MythBusters, though. Not yet. I did not write the article. Bottom line, I can only recommend Bill Nye so far, and that I do.Search
