One of the better thought out shows out there, 11 April 2004
Author: ( from Australia

An absolutely brilliant series. This is one of those unforgettable shows which not only used over 1000 sounds in one show but had the most brilliantly characterised actors such as Beakman (Paul Zaloom) and the enthusiasm put into it just makes science more interesting by far.

The only problem was the fact that it stopped running and that Liza was replaced by Josie. Liza just had that amazing spark like Beakman and Lester, however she was replaced soon by Josie who had little to no talent. It always seems the good shows out there are the first taken off and replaced by absolute junk.

But anyway, brilliant show. They deserve every ounce of credit they get.
