Here's a linky-poo for you. I guess some of you will have seen this series, but it was new to me. I think it might appeal to some of you.

It's like, what if Monty Python were schoolteachers.

I love the hall of ancient technology, especially the calculators and the simple programming at the beginning of the show.

Watching this show makes me finally understand why math has eluded me all these years. [Razz]

The big question is: Do you prefer season one or two? For those who haven't watched it, the format was changed for season two, with half hour "Tomorrow's World" style episodes.

Personally I favour the second season, as although it doesn't have the exceptionally funny moments that season one does, it is consistently funnier.

That's awesome...I just watched the Maths one, and shall be sure to inflict sick amusement upon some prof. friends of mine. [Wink]

Thanks Max! One of my cats attacked the screen of my Mac just before the kittens were ordered to "Stop fighting now".

Not too hot, or we'd have to change it to 2.08 [Smile]

My cat reacted similarly.
