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

Wasted my time... Very disappointing and overrated.
10 January 2012 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Apart from one or two episodes this documentary is very very poor. It seems to be targeted at the American audience as it kind of implies that America is "The World". Regardless of this it has very few factual information and is mostly fictional.

The Titanic episode is one of the most disappointing. It supposedly uses real testimonies but they don't support it with actual evidence like pictures of the actual structures or of the records themselves, so you kinda get that feeling that most of it is made up. The aliens episode is just a bad Sci-fi movie while the cavemen double-episode is basically a bad reality show.

In the end... The only real good episode is the first one but if you compare it to "Through the Wormhole" its not nearly as good... We'll I guess the one about America is kinda decent too and the one about sex as a few interesting facts but they still feel like they were made for dummies.
