Enjoy The Science, but the cast is horrible
13 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

I really like the concept of the show and the projects they work on. How could you not like the host Kal Penn. I would give this show a 9 or a 10 if it wasn't for some of the contestants.

Gui - I hate to be mean and I absolutely hate bullies, but if all nerds acted like Gui, no wonder bullies beat up nerds. He is extremely arrogant and so far has shown nothing to back it up. He is a supposed brainiac without a brain. I was amazed how he played the dictator in his group when trying to shoot the projectile out of the air, and when their attempts failed miserably, he actually pushed the blame off on someone else. A horrible leader! Dan - OMG are you kidding me. Where did the show find this guy. This guy belongs on the Jersey shore because his IQ seems to be about on par with Snooki's. How can you claim to be "Frat Boy" and not be able to get along with ANYONE!! Dan made the show uncomfortable at times for my family to watch because of his childish attitude. He is one step above an Ape on the evolutionary chart. Give me a break, not only will WET not hire you, but I don't think any job where you actually interact with people would suit you. Maybe a mortician. Anyone who resorts to screaming and violence clearly has mental issues. Get Counceling! Lastly, did you actually go outside to to Pout because you had a hard time getting your way. GROW UP you big baby! Other than those two cast members the show is great. I look forward to later episodes when surely Dan and Gui will be voted off. Dan will surely get voted off the next time his team loses and if Gui ever tries to lead a group then it will be his last because it surely will fail.

Go Kal Penn!
