Only with Richard Hammond and more rapid fire science experiments.
The show is better with Hammond than the follow up series with Bob Mortimer.

If you like Mythbusters then give this a watch.

Could have been Mythbusters UK

Fun stuff. Especially considering this came out along the same time as Mythbusters. Probably could have lasted longer if they had been more along that line than the educational side. But then we might not have Top Gear. Hamster, you chose the right path. But I still liked this show.
