Making My Life Better By Binge Watching: Going Deep with David Rees
File under: Fun facts see also: genuine enthusiasm for science
There’s pretty much nothing I don’t love about this show. John Hodgman had been talking it up for weeks, but out of laziness I didn’t go out of my way to watch it until tonight. I put it on intending to watch one episode and I ended up binge watching the whole season so far.
Here’s a list of things I love about Going Deep…
David Rees. This show wouldn’t work without him and his sincere excitement about what he’s learning.
The love for the unsung experts of everyday stuff.
The everyday science facts. It perfectly feeds my love of annoying people with fun facts.
The filming and editing style. It’s snappy and fun and full of silly little details.
Seeing the “seams” of the show. I absolutely love that they use the blooper style moments and often show/involve the crew. It’s a spot on choice for a how to style show.
The Wes Andersonesque title cards that introduce the experts.
The on-the-spot songs (someone get David Rees & Elliott Kalan together in an impromptu musical)
The humor. I laugh out loud at least 3 times per episode.
