Look Around You…

They just don’t make TV shows like they used to. I was tipped off to an *amazing* show recently… Look Around You! It’s science communication done right: dry, slow, and completely and utterly ridiculous.

Pure genius. Pure calcium. I wish I’d seen this in school.

    I remember watching that show during late night sessions at Uni computer labs. Utter gold, Especially the ‘Sulpher’ episode.

    • I imagine that overtiredness (as I am now), intoxication and/or extreme boredom would make it even better. The complete deadpan is just brilliant.

    Lol, it’s so amazingly ridiculous!

    You must be stuck in a cave somewhere to show crap like this! Do you have a “mean streak” by any chance? lol

    Oh, hope that you will show, possibly interview, some of the people that you meet on your travels.

    Stay Safe,

    A program that I got my kids to look at was “Science Court” for younger kids but enjoyable for all

  6. MB, no, nothing like that! I just appreciate absurd humour.

    Henk, thanks for the tip off, I’ll check it out!
