Storyline

This program is made by the Discovery Network, and the show's 'full-name' has the suffix phrase of "The Questions of Our Life", after curiosity. The show tries to answer mysteries and certain queries within diverse fields like the human mind, history, archaeology, medicine, anthropology, nature, biology, space and history. While the show was being planned, Discovery's game-plan was to air twelve one-hour episodes each season for five years. However, when "Curiosity..." did premiere in August of 2011, it began a weekly broadcast schedule that ran the full first season, which ended with the 13th episode on November, 20, 2011. Similarly, the second season also followed the weekly format, between October 7, 2012 and January 27, 2013. Since then, there has only been one episode broadcast under the umbrella title of "Curiosity: The Questions of Our Life". This was the episode named "Stonehenge", which was shown on July 20, 2014. Two websites have emerged since the series debut, both of ... Written by mycroftmy

Painfully bad!
10 November 2012 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

If you are looking for a documentary or anything to improve your knowledge - stay away from this show. After the first episode (which was narrated by Stephen Hawking) it seemed as if it wasn't THAT bad, even tough the information was spread rather thinly (as someone mentioned here before), but going into episode two you're going to be overwhelmed with crazy assumptions that bare no connection to reality at all. Rule of thumb: a show that is presented by a person who seems to wander aimlessly through a mysterious room while the camera changes its angle every half second usually is just as bad as those sequences tend to look.

If you like Trash TV, just go right ahead - but please: don't believe anything you hear here without checking the facts.
