Growing up watching BNTSG I really expected a lot from this show. 1.5 episodes in I had to turn it off because I was so disappointed. The second episode in particular comes off as cruel and unnecessary. If you didn't want to cause offense by laughing at the "healer" to his face, why would you think going on international television and doing it would be OK? What is this teaching people?
Everyone knows there is all sorts of gimmicks out there...was it necessary to spend a third of the show mocking people? The whole premise seems much more about riling up people who are already "on their side", vs educating and teaching everyone about science and potentially influencing those who most need it.
Having a spokesperson who had the opportunity to "make science cool" I really thought they could have done so much more with this show. However, they chose to take an elitist, smug, and condescending tone that is going to further polarize an already divided country and absolutely not reach the audience which desperately needed to be reached.
