I turned it off after 6 minutes! I'll bet it doesn't make it past 2 episodes.

Well sadly it exploits the extremist kooks of the environmentalist crowd and makes light of the real serious threats that the planet's ecosystems actually face. Making the quick buck is the order of the day. Most scientists who work with various differing fields of expertise all agree on one thing. They all agree the Earth is in trouble and that any ideas they propose to reverse things are only temporary stopgap measures. They know that even if they have the primo idea, there is no guarantee that human society will get on board and impliment the ideas, or change their habits.

The Green Sub-Forum is usually anything but possitive discussion for GREEN SOLUTIONS . Generally a put down platform of any ideas for a healthier planet and that's really ashame.

I saw some of the previews, and there were a few quips that looked funny. Unfortunately, weird environmentalists aren't interesting enough to center an entire show around them. You'd have to take a few quick pot-shots, then get off it - kind of like they do with Family Guy or The Simpsons.

So yeah, this show won't last long.

I thought it was a pretty funny show, but I can't see myself watching it all that much.

Definitely third this one. Keep the political stuff in the obnoxious Politics forum, and leave Green Living for actual discussions of Green Living.
