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.

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!!

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!
