Utterly Canadian Look at Science
8 June 2003 | by (New Orleans, Louisiana, USA) – See all my reviews

I have just discovered this show, and although I feel that I'm too old for it, looking at it from a child's point of view, it is probably very entertaining. Perhaps the show's greatest gimmick now that it is in reruns (2003) is that one of the show's young stars is Elisha Cuthbert, who has become a household name through her fame on the Fox's 24. Over all, even though it can be a little over the top at times, if I were still twelve years old (ahh...how those days have come and gone) I definitely would watch this program. It's a mix of the gross-out experiments that your stuffy science teacher never taught you combined with a (slightly) educational element. I still believe that for older viewers (particularly aficionados of 24) the real fun of watching the show is seeing a young Cuthbert talking about everything from zoo animals and explosives to stage make-up and animatronic creatures.
