I wonder when this will end
This series does cover important topics but it comes off a bit shallow and hyped. Granted, this is my perspective but I've come to expect more pithy content form Nova. Could be they are trying to attract a different demographic - one not accustomed to serious science or a younger crowd. Truthfully, I'm looking forward to the end of this gee wiz series. Then again it could be my local station is replacing the usual Nova with this.
