Honestly, I wanted to like it.
8 May 2017 | by wxpierceSee all my reviews

Wow, you know I probably agree with most of the ideas they "want" to send, but this show is just really obnoxious.

They visit a "alternative" healer to simply mock him, and it's so mean spirited it's sad. It's not "science!" ha, it's ridiculous! Yet the only science I've seen on the show to this point was a very dramatic lighting of a Bunsen burner to boil some water with food coloring.

I really question how they would ever get a person to sign off on the rights to use that footage in such a slanderous/mocking fashion.

One guy on the panel actually has really good points to make about ultrasound, and other real world facts but he's basically shut down because "science!"

Then an Aziz Ansari wannabe lectures "white people" about cultural appropriation in what I think was supposed to be a stand-up routine. They call back some shots from the alternative-healers office with shots of his Buddha's......... I'm sorry are white people not allowed to be Buddhist? I know a good many- I guess I should tell them to stick to white people religions.

And is this a show for kids? Or just kids who grew up with Nye?
