Another Popular Investigative Show

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.

I like Myth Busters
by: VMW

I enjoy watching Myth Busters. Even though I'd agree that Bill Nye was a more informative show and much better suited for kids. Watching Myth Busters is just fun and intriguing watching some of the crazier stuff they do.

Good way to learn science

Being a young adult, This show and article help me to remember those school days where I watch lots of kids programs, science fiction etc. It might be turn into another great disney production

I think I agree with Barry. I would recommend Bill Nye more. The Myth busters are alright but sometimes I don't think they explain things properly
