Did You Know?


Hodgins claims that ice is only one third as dense as lead. Water ice has a density of slightly less than one gram per cubic centimeter, while lead has a density of 11.34 grams per cubic centimeter, making ice actually less than one eleventh as dense as lead. As a scientist, Hodgins would be aware of this. See more »

User Reviews

Some religious interest group must have gotten control of the writers!
15 December 2013 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

At what point did this show run off the rails and get taken over by the religious nuts?

There are so few shows that show a rational point of view, and almost none with a strong, likable atheist.

The religious nuts have EVERY other show out there, why do they have to shovel their crap into one of the very few shows that was rational?

Shame on the writers for doing this. Shame on whoever allowed this to happen.

Very disappointing and discouraging.

What makes superstitious people feel that anyone who is reasonable has to be like a Vulcan... all brains, no emotion or warmth? Then they use that show how flawed reason must be as compared to the feeling "faith" based idiocy they want to advocate. This show probably drove them nuts because it had a strong advocate of reason who made all the superstitious/religious people in the show look silly (as will happen when they are faced with reason and facts)... so they applied some kind of pressure or something and the writers were replaced or caved to pressure and they destroyed the core of the show with this fluff. So sad.
