Very entertaining way to learn
3 October 2015 | by tripper511See all my reviews

I love watching shows on the Discovery and Science channel. Shows like Brain Games and The Universe. Adam Ruins Everything is incredibly entertaining and informative. It questions irrational social norms while breaking the 4th wall and adding very edgy comedy. As of this review (10-3-2015) only one episode has premiered and it was great! It pointed out how many activities and "good deeds" we perform as a society are really just manipulations from advertisers from our past and have no rational basis. After watching the first episode I already have a different outlook on our culture and what I thought was the proper way to live life. It reminded me of the book "The De-Textbook" which is a great book if you enjoy learning the history behind why we do what we do in an entertaining way.

If you like this show I suggest you check out some of his web shorts on College Humor on YouTube.

I really hope this show takes off.
