My best addiction
22 October 2007 | by (Kansas, United States) – See all my reviews

I absolutely love this series and will be eternally grateful to Netflix for introducing it to me, unfortunately Netflix doesn't have all of the seasons available. I've hunted down copies for my personal collection and will not rest until I've gotten all of the Rough Science there is to be had. I'm so attached to - and attracted to ;) - the scientists and very much envy them in their participation. My favorite season so far has been the NZ Gold Rush episodes - though it's hard to choose favorites. This is a show that inspires creativity and curiosity and manages to teach you a thing or two at the same time. It definitely deserved more prime time positioning, though I'm fearful that too much attention for fear of it being spoiled by outside influences.
