I expect more from the History Channel
17 December 2013 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This show turns history into shows like "Best Police Chases" or "When Animals Attack".

There are more useless CG and intros than the actual content. Remove all the CG of flying through networks, the mindless summary of the show after EVERY commercial break, I would be surprised if there are 10 minutes of actual content in any episode.

They interview renowned scientists and only get the sound bite of the most basic concept. If they had interviewed Albert Einstein, their question would be "so, physics... pretty cool huh?"

To see a proper example of the same concept of this show, watch Connections, a show by James Burke. It was done in 1978 but far better than this show.
