If the one reviewer here who rated this a 10 can't see the difference between actual science, and the veneer used to drag the audience through impossible hyperbole, then he/she/it is an imbecile (or a paid troll.)
Every episode is filled with sketchy evidence of some unique object or occurrence, then built to a crescendo, followed by "Just kidding". The asswipes responsible for this crap should be on the bread line someplace, and the garbage they have already produced belongs on the Comedy Channel.
I fear that Discovery is headed down the same path as so many other once-educational channels - pandering to the lowest common denominator in search of ratings (and they found it in Mr.IGaveItA10ToOffsetTheLowScores.)
