Excellent Edutainment!
23 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show was brilliant! It worked on so many levels. It was hip and entertaining in its own right, and very educational. I suspect if anyone bothered to measure the retention of material learned from this show vs traditional classroom methods, this show would blow the classroom results away. It had decent subject depth per episode and enough repetition to ensure the point got across, yet did not lag and loose the viewer. I enjoyed watching with my kids very much. It was orders of magnitude better than similar shows from the past.

The only thing better than the show was the music video at the end. They were worthy of Weird Al.

A pox on the Disney Corporation for leeching and hoarding this. You losers could not come up with this on your own if your life depended on it. Stick to your Chicken Littles, you mediocre has beens.

The Bill Nye the Science Guy dial cranks up to eleven. 11/10 MadKaugh
