Great show, Alda makes it perfect
13 December 2000 | by (Evansville, Indiana) – See all my reviews

This is a great addition to PBS' great schedule. Very interesting stories on science related matter, such as robots, space, high altitude sickness, brain waves, memory, dreams, and so on. You learn a lot of stuff from the show, and I always like that. Some shows might teach you and not be entertaining, but with Alan Alda, that's not possible. In this show, he's smart, witty, and very friendly. The topics discussed are most always exciting and relevant to what we deal with in our everyday lives, and the show's writing is very smart.
