But We've Already Been Through The Wormhole

     I'll admit it, I was a little excited about The Science Channels "Through the Wormhole" hosted by Morgan Freeman. I was hoping for my generation's Cosmos. But then again, I'm a little bit of a geek at heart. After watching the last five episodes, I'm disappointed.
     "Through the Wormhole" is a new Science Channel special about the mysteries of the universe. Topics range from time travel to particle physics. Stylistically, the show goes above and beyond the ordinary fare yet lacks in content. The trouble is, there's really nothing new being presented here. If you watch geeky science shows on Discovery, PBS and the like, then skip it. You've already heard it all, just not from the mouth of Morgan Freeman.
     Now, I know what you're thinking.
     "You just broke your first rule. You know, the one about only commenting on 'The Awesome.'"
     WELL... this counts because I was really hoping this show would be awesome.
