Yeah, you hit that nail on the head. I find their antics amusing, and sometimes they rig up pretty cool devices, but as "edutainment" goes it's heavily weighted on the "tainment" side of things. I always find myself cursing that they didn't bother to explain a physical principle even superficially, or that they never bother doing replicate experiments because of statistical variability, etc. But hey - it's all about blowing stuff up in amusing ways, and keeping the unwashed masses from changing the channel
