We’ve just started watching a lot of the Discovery Channel‘s MythBusters. It’s really entertaining (much better than certain home re-decorating and make-over shows), and surprisingly educational.

It’s not so much that it goes into the details of the science, but it sure promotes the spirit of science by questioning beliefs and putting them to the test. CSI has been thought to promote science, and MythBusters doesn’t an even better job. (Of course, CSI is on network TV and is a lot more popular.)

In short, if you get the Discovery Channel (and I bet most of you do), go ahead and watch an episode and see what you think. If you have a PVR, even better, you can record a whole pile of episodes. Enjoy.
