I liked it a lot. How long is this running for?

I am excited to see how this show progresses. Good starter episode. As an former Chemical Engineer, turned IT manager - I've had my fun with exothermic and endothermic reactions with mixed results. The union of chemistry and technology is quintessential this episode! I can feel some meh responses coming, but the potential is there, for a killer show... the microwave segment should win a few over!

We have 13 episodes in our inaugural season -- look for new ones every Thursday. Glad you enjoyed the show!

Ah great stuff, thanks for that :) Good job on it!

Looking forward to more of this.
Interesting that it's produced by High Noon and Discover.
My only hope is that we get more "Macguyver" and less "Dumbass thing we filmed on our cellphones".
Eitherway, it's a good mix of edutainment.

I'm not a huge fan of chemistry, but I find this show to be interesting. I think it has a lot of potential. Keep up the good work.

Great show, huge potential. I'm glad how lately Revision3's new shows have been about technology/science. I'm also glad how this show is sort of a DIY series since Systm was cancelled.

Also, is the show produced in the Rev3 studios? The location where Joe was making the elephant toothpaste looked like the back of the Tekzilla set.

Is it just me or is the large xvid way out of sync? :( Tried downloading it from the RSS feed 3 times.

Pretty cool show, I can't wait to blow stuff up myself.
BTW, can someone rotate his body ~30 degrees to the left? Thought he looked kinda awkward facing diagonal to the camera.

Solid first show. And Jonah Ray > Jonah Hill. Great to see him on Revision3.

I really liked the show and thought it was awesome how they showed experiments that people have done. My only problem is with the ones you can do yourself like the elephant toothpaste, I wasn't sure which concentrate of hydrogen peroxide to use. They should out up a list of "ingredients" before starting with the correct names and amounts.

This is just great! Right after watching it, I showed it to some kids... Thanks to this. I look forward to more chemistry stuff from Joe Genius! :-)

I liked the show too and think it could be fun.
One thought, though (weird how those two words are only missing a "t"...no that's not the one thought) don't do the "here's a list of ingredients and we will pan down them slowly." This is the internet, so just post them and say "Pause the player here for the ingredients" and move on.
I always zone out on cooking shows when I know I won't cook it, but they post the ingredients for me to read anyway (for the other people).

I agree, Please can we have less lo- Quality youtube style videos of Idiots doing incredibly dumb dangerous stuff. The pop-Science stuff was very good but the Idiot youtube bits makes the show as stupid as those in the Videos!!
