Storyline

With the help of his assistants Josie and Lester the Rat, he uses various methods like animation, interviews with famous dead people of science and simple experiments to illustrate scientific principles.

What a hoot!
30 September 2006 | by mydeskclockSee all my reviews

This show was a scream- funny, smart and just plain fun. I was a teacher in my 40's when I discovered it, and never missed a show. I learned things I didn't know, and still use in classes. The pace frenetic. The three characters worked together like fingers. Beakman was frantic and a riot, Lester the Rat was the best sidekick ever seen on television, and of the women- all great, but Josie was my favorite! The show explained science in ways that anyone could understand, and left you wanting to know more. I'm 50 now, and just discovered it's on re-runs- I hope it outlives me. What fool pulled the plug on it? I hope whoever decided to is bagging groceries.
