Video: "Chemistry Has Never Been So Fun"
Previous generations have had friendly people like Isaac Asimov and Bill Nye to make the sciences more friendly to everyone. In recent years there's been all that CSI-style TV science that supposedly makes kids want to become crime scene investigators. Now we have Breaking Bad, the NSFW (warning!) cable drama that is extremely disturbing and violent and whose main character Walter is a high school chemistry teacher turned meth magician:
As a recent Forbes blog post claiming the show is the best thing on TV notes, "Science is used for all sorts of fun things... Chemistry has never been so fun. Aside from all the science-based action sequences, there’s even a few of Walter’s high school lectures that contain just enough science goodies to be really fascinating." Too bad you can't show many clips to your chemistry class without getting in trouble.
