    For those of you who like nature and science what shows do you like watching?

    I myself enjoy watching shows like Big Cat Diaries, Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman, Monsters Inside Me, Monster Bugs Wars, How It's Made, Wonders of the Universe, etc...

    Just curious if other nerds like myself are out there.

    Ancient Aliens on History icon_redface.gif

    On a more fascinating note used to watch a short series on Animal Planet called Eaten Alive (always been fascinated with parasitology).

    I couldn't watch that show. The guy with the crazy hair made me want to throw things while shouting "CORRELATION IS NOT CAUSATION!".

    I do enjoy the BBC/A&E Planet Earth series, and its follow-ups. Just watched The Planets, which was a terrific review not only of the planets themselves but also of the triumphs and failures of the US and Soviet space programs and the people who composed them.

    Through the Wormhole, Ancient Aliens, and pretty much anything by Michio Kaku or Stephen Hawking. The late Carl Segan was also a brilliant speaker in his documentaries. I also watch shitloads of lectures about astrophysics, astrobiology, space exploration, commercial space travel, and various advanced propulsion techniques (antigravity, antimatter, plasma thrust, etc.)

    Acutally I shoulda been an astronaut. icon_lol.gif

    Eric Von Danigen is a brilliant mind with archeology, but he's still an idiot when it comes to other things.

    Though the Wormhole, narrated by Morgan Freeman

    You can watch it in parts on Youtube, one of the most fascinating things I have ever scene and almost makes me wish I focused on Physics and Not Biochem.
