Overrated commercial for fortune telling
30 June 2011 | by rgcustomerSee all my reviews

That my review is negative should be no surprise. This series is less about science and more about wide-eyed speculation about what might happen if everything goes unusually perfectly, with typically low amounts of time given to discussing the possible negative effects before they happen. Apparently we don't want to be a party pooper.

This is exactly the kind of almost magical thinking about engineering that got us into the trouble we have today (fuel scarcity, pollution, destruction of environmental resources, cities that alienate people, etc.) These folks (as a category) have a lot to answer for, and they want to be trusted with artificial life, nanoparticles, and other creations? No. It's time to slow way down, and ensure that we actually know what we're doing, before we screw it up.

Given that, I was very bored by the middle of the second episode. You can only watch these people brag about the unknown future for so long. I did finish the miniseries, and thought each episode was slightly better than the one before it, but I cannot recommend it overall.
