My kids and I watched it. Yes its titillating but my kids were fascinated by things but very slow and some other science experiments that, I think, may hopefully have made them think more positively about Science

"...Don’t miss the latest drama from the vessels of the Bering Sea as the Emmy nominated series Deadliest Catch returns to Discovery HD....."

Am I missing something? When has the Deadliest Catch ever been on Discovery HD Canada before this? As far as I know it has been on the regular Discovery Channel but never the HD channel. In any case it should look good.

It's a bit juvenile, but I've recorded and watched every episode. ;)
More than a little juvenile, but a great escape. It reminds me of all the dumb "experiments" we did as kid, but with the things we could get our hands on back then. Personally, I love the rockets.
