Nova Science Now

I watched Nova Science Now yesterday on PBS and found it to be very well done. The episode covered a variety of interesting topics including mirror neurons, which is pretty cutting edge. Nova was one of my favourite shows when I was a child but I thought it started to lose focus in recent years. I think they tried to gather a broader audience by diluting the science. I'm glad they've revitalized this venerable franchise.

I disagree. NOVA Science Now is a simple-minded, sound-bite, dumbed-down science for dummies who want to stay that way. No skepticism, no controversy, no complexity, no data, no doubt, no challenge. If you couldn’t care less about science and never will, NOVA Science Now is for you.
