Storyline

This program is made by the Discovery Network, and the show's 'full-name' has the suffix phrase of "The Questions of Our Life", after curiosity. The show tries to answer mysteries and certain queries within diverse fields like the human mind, history, archaeology, medicine, anthropology, nature, biology, space and history. While the show was being planned, Discovery's game-plan was to air twelve one-hour episodes each season for five years. However, when "Curiosity..." did premiere in August of 2011, it began a weekly broadcast schedule that ran the full first season, which ended with the 13th episode on November, 20, 2011. Similarly, the second season also followed the weekly format, between October 7, 2012 and January 27, 2013. Since then, there has only been one episode broadcast under the umbrella title of "Curiosity: The Questions of Our Life". This was the episode named "Stonehenge", which was shown on July 20, 2014.

For the uninformed

I have been an involuntary witness to the decline of Discovery Channel's level for the last five years. The network used to offer a wide range of educational programs and would often enlighten the viewer. Now, in order to attract a wider audience, they decided to cut knowledge into fine slices, get rid of half and spread the other sliced half all throughout an episode. What you get is repetitiveness and a strange effect that makes the viewer (who was around before the meltdown) feel like a total jackass for being spoonfed individual facts that -together- make up one scientific theory (merely skimmed on the surface by lack of depth). So, Curiosity is NOT what you're looking for if you know anything about any subject they were able to come up with. The drugs episode had me convinced: nothing new there. The one about the universe ... well... resort to Stephen Hawking's Into the Universe (2010) if you feel like being taught something genuine and worth knowing. Curiosity is for those who are new to Discovery Channel's new attitude towards science and television in general. If you know nothing, consider this Class 101 and the teacher knows almost as much as you do.

The only thing that is amusing, is that different celebrities host different episodes. Listening to Morgan Freeman's voice was quite soothing. So that's why I gave this 5/10 instead of 4/10.
