Aww shucks, I thought I'd found a new entertaining and informative show. I loved Episode 1, and was just about to buy the season . . .
and then Adam says in the closing segment that it's a fact that genetically modified food is just as safe as conventional food. Excuse me? That argument has not been settled yet. Unless you're just doing surface skimming of the paid studies that the corporations are promoting. Definitely no facts have been settled.
You lost my trust in the validity of your research with that little closing segment Adam, and ruined the show for me. So close!!
Reaction of the show and of the comment above
I loved this little segment when it was on college humor. And now that its a show is very cool to me. But what!!! modified food is not healthy for you at all. Regardless of arguments that haven’t been settled yet, its not. So yeah it a bummer and im at the same crossroads that the lady above me is at. Though everything has something you don’t like, and is that enough to make not want to buy it?
Great Show, but...
I have been waiting for a show like this to come out for a while. Humorous, educational, and refreshing. Putting some realistic perspective on things we assume to be truth, is something the world needs and should be excited to hear. But, I agree with the above reviews. If your show is about facts, then don’t throw something vague and unproved in the end. How can I trust other facts if I question the integrity of the show. We are a little to close in our timeline to understand the unknown effects genetic modification will have on our bodies, economy, and government. Waite for it.
