Terrible editing
21 January 2019 | by k-performanceSee all my reviews

This show is really good, makes science interesting and really well explained. Things are broken down into simpler terms, really great, I wish science was like this at school.

BUT the editing is awful. There are many times watching this you can't hear him because music or sound effects have been made far too loud - this let's it down for me, but the content of the show brilliant.
