I started taking more adventur-y vacations after one in Cancun. But it's still enjoyable! Plus I've never been so tan.
Sara, I'm not going to lie, I'm kind of relieved that NOVA is like the one of our shows I don't feel like I need to be watching, but I'm really glad you are!
I've decided NOVA has the biggest peak-to-trough of any show on the air. Some episodes are fantastic. Some are so incredibly, incredibly awkward and boring, I can't imagine who the audience is (and I love science docs!).
my worst experience with a science program was one on the History channel. It was all about the rings on the planets in our solar system.
They first started talking about the rings of Saturn. But then said that there were rings around Uranus. And Jupiter. And Neptune. They mentioned no rings around Mars, but said that in the next segment they were going to discuss the rings around Earth.
I couldn't believe this! I hadn't heard about rings around EARTH. This was exciting news. I sat through the commercial break on the edge of my seat.
The rings around Earth? They were referring to satellits orbiting the planet and said our rings were man-made.
Fuck you History channel. And the prehistoric horses you rode in on. That is not what your average viewer was expecting and you should be ashamed for getting our hopes up at something monumental.
One post left! I just this second realized we need a new thread and a new name (but not from me; I'm the world's worst at titles).
It's The Universe. Ep is called Hunt for Ringed Planets in Season 4. I found it fascinating.
