Bad Universe is Good TV

Just watched Phil “Bad Astronomy” Plait’s new Discovery Channel Show Bad Universe.  Great stuff!  He’s an enthusiastic and engaging host.  We’ll be watching the whole series.  Minor quibble: Phil uses his signature phrase “Holy Haleakala!” about six times too many during the hour.  Maybe it’s just me.  Overall, though, a thoroughly entertaining show.  Check it out!

    Phil live tweeted during the show “Sorry about all the Holy Haleakalas. I didn’t think they’d use *all* of them. :) #BadUniverse”

    It’s not just you — Jenn at Blag Hag had the same complaint. Phil did apologize: “Sorry about all the Holy Haleakalas. I didn’t think they’d use *all* of them. :)”

    Yep, that drove me nuts, too. But he apologized for it on Twitter: http://twitter.com/BadAstronomer/status/22490819981

    P.S. You might want to consider switching to reCAPTCHA. The one below is fine, but it doesn’t help the efforts to digitize old books.
