She Could Have Given Them the Hives!
19 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Truman Bradley educates us on the social structures of bees and termites, particularly as it relates to the workers, soldiers, and the queen. We are now introduced to a scientist who has been invited to a lab by a major expert on these very things. When he gets there a big thug throws him across a porch. The people living in and around the house are performing their jobs to perfection. There is even a new queen running things. We are never privy to how this is done. Most comedic is a man mowing a lawn with a traditional push mower. He zooms around in a near catatonic state; another woman is vacuuming endlessly. This is so obvious as to be laughable. They really reached this time.
