At any rate, it is a good starter for anyone who has not seen the show, or who hasn't seen it in a long time and remembers it! I would definitely recommend it for kids and adults, whether they like science or not. I never really liked science, but this show just made it so fun! The show is very cleverly written and the acting is great. It was obviously made by talented and intelligent people with a sense of humor, sometimes weird, but always funny! What more can I say? Everyone should watch this show!
AND the previews of other videos are all OLD movies.
BUT, at least we have Beakman on DVD. Only an hour, but what an hour it is. Beakman along with lab rat Lester, and sidekick Jose do numerous scientific experiments. Explaning how to do them (safely) and why things do what they do. Each experiment is a "chapter" so you can go to a specific experiment easily.
I'm dissapointed that this was not a new collection made just for DVD. AND .. I suspect that, while it is also available in your local video store, it will not sell very well ... WHY? .. because it will be hard to find unless you are specifially looking for it .. and even then you may need to ask an employee (of course you can buy it here on AMAZON instead)
What I'm REALLY waiting for is complete seasons .. but if they are "testing the waters" with this DVD and it doesn't sell well, they will likely not release anything further :-(
SUGGESTION: It's cheap enough .. why not buy an extra copy and donate it to your local public library?
