I’m only curious about how disappointing it will be

I just saw a teaser trailer for the new Discovery Channel show “Curiosity”. Get this: the first episode is about God creating the universe. Half of the synopsis talks about experimental things while the second seems just theoretical and philosophical. I recommend you read it yourself and see if you’re interested. After all, it’s worth it just to see the pilot and here Stephen Hawking or the amazing Morgan Freeman (if only they had Neil deGrasse Tyson or Michio Kaku as well). I like these sort of shows that bridge the public and scientific community, as well as some of the hosts who do the same like Adam Savage from Mythbusters. However, I’m reminded of how Savage has said on his Twitter that he’d love to do a 911 conspiracy theory debunking episode but was denied because of its controversial aspect. Sadly I believe that this will happen with Curiosity as well, and all we will hear from the pilot is an agnostic “let’s all be right” message.

From the clean, polished, animated all-white teaser and apparent high-quality production value, it looks as if this won’t last a season just for it’s budget.
