Going Deep with David Rees
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Going Deep with Davis Rees is fun but contains some occasional iffy language ("crap," "kickass"), as well as some sexual innuendo that will go over the heads of younger viewers. Knives, lighters, and other potentially dangerous objects are used during demonstrations. Hard liquor is sometimes shown, and logos for Apple as well as Arctic Glacier products are visible. Still, it's an entertaining and educational show for viewers of all ages.
What's the story?
GOING DEEP WITH DAVID REES shows how seemingly simple things are more complex than we think they are. This how-to series stars humorist David Rees, who is committed to showing us how to do things we already do -- but better. In his quest to learn everything from how to make clear ice cubes to how to tie one's shoes, Rees meets with scientists and other experts to learn more. Funny graphics and Rees' unique brand of commentary make this entertaining.
Is it any good?
The series offers a fun opportunity to learn about the science that goes into doing the different things we do every day. It also highlights the reasons why some things work better than others and offers instructions on how to do things better in ways that can be tried safely at home.
There's a lot to be learned here, but what makes the show entertaining is Rees himself, whose humor ranges from dry and deadpan to quick-talking and wacky. The genuinely funny outtakes will make you chuckle, too. Science and engineering fans will enjoy the show, and viewers of all ages will find something to like.
