The decline of "Genius"?
12 July 2018 | by rsvp321See all my reviews

Season 1 Einstein, was a 9.

Season 2 Picasso, was an 8.

National Geographic has revealed that next season will be about Mary Shelley. Talented and recognised, but hardly a "genius"!

If a female was to be picked to appease current political movements, I can easily think of a dozen true "geniuses" that could have been portrayed, and Shelley wouldn't be on that list.
