They show stuff in super, super, super slow motion so as to ‘discover the science behind everyday things’. That’s absolute nonsense. It’s about as scientific as a creationist’s biologist book. Not that any of that matters at all. It’s still absolutely awesome.
I mean, who doesn’t like seeing stuff happen at 500 frames per second?
It certainly beats the holy hell out of last year’s crapfest, Smash Lab. Which, now that I look, apparently actually did come back for a second season. I had no idea. Huh.
