Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

World’s most untalented presenters

While the content is interesting, I cannot get through a full episode with these presenters, especially the two women. They have zero ability and sound like they are reading (not speaking) from a teleprompter. They seem to be doing bad impressions of presenters. Have any of them ever watched David Attenborough, Bill Nye, Alice Roberts, Brian Cox, or Neil DeGrasse Tyson--or any of many of the very talented scientists who do amazing science education with real talent and flair? I have to reiterate that I have tried three times and I cannot get through an entire episode no matter how interesting the subject is to me. I’m sure these three are nice people, and I might tolerate the guy, but the women are sadly. just. pathetic. I’ll stick to the BBC, thank you--or the regular NOVA series.
