This Show Rocked

Why is it so?

[A] ground-breaking TV series with the enigmatic Professor Julius Sumner Miller – ran on the ABC from 1963 to 1986. Professor Miller’s infectious enthusiasm for physics delighted, educated and entertained generations of Australians, most of whom have at some point asked each other ‘Why is it so?’ in the characteristic Julius Sumner Miller voice.

I’ve watched 1 1/2 episodes. It’s sort of a drag because of it keeps freezing as it tries to buffer. I should be on a quick enough pipe to handle it. I can’t imagine what it would be like on dial-up.

The show rocks though. From the initial close-up on that freaky black & white eyeball to his Socratic grilling of the students, he’s like a cooler, crazier Mr. Wizard.
