This show gives unusual facts. An example is the man who stole Einstein's brain actually happened. The attempt to research to create a gorilla army was found after WWII. There are many interesting and strange things in history and science. It is about time that they are brought to the attention of the general public. The presentation of the material is done in a fun and amusing way. The creator and actors in the series never take themselves too serious and yet all the information in the programs I've watched has checked out. The actor from Fringe gives it an added dimension even though he has such a very small part. I really enjoy the programs and highly recommend then to others. The show is worth watching.
