In addition to horror movies... and animated movies... and having an opinion about people who say stupid things... I enjoy watching educational shows, and learning.
With that in mind, I present my Top Five Educational Shows From My Youth!
Some of the jobs explored were: worm dung farmer, removing gum from sidewalks, owl vomit collector, cleaning animals skulls, and blood worm digger.
Each show had a sense of humor, while making the audience appreciate the people who work hard in the "dirty jobs" so we can live like civilized people.
This show helped to inspire my passion for the supernatural and the unusual. There's a new version hosted by Zachary Quinto that started in 2018.
It was great seeing how they'd design experiments to test urban legends, folklore, and the reality of famous movie and TV scenes before actually conducting the experiment- usually with a bang!
Even though I was a teenager when this show started, I enjoyed putting it on and listening while I did my homework, or puttered around doing chores.
It was calm, soothing, and relaxing. And frankly, any show about books is going to interest me.
The show continues as an app one most platforms- helping to spread it's message of literacy, and the joys of reading.
It covered the Second World War from start to finish, and was just a fascinating show that really put across the effects of the war on the lives of all concerned: soldiers, civilians, prisoners, families, adults, and children.
Of the shows on this list, I would have to say that THIS series is the one that had the MOST impact on me growing up. To day this day, I remember the opening credits, and feel my chest tense up at the rawness of the pictures burning and the title on fire.
So, there you have it- my Top Five Educational TV Sows From My Youth.
