Steven Hawkins is one of the great minds of our time , about that you can have no doubt, or if you do, you quite frankly have not been paying
attention. However, he is great within his field.
However in the show there is very little of his field. It is more focused toward lifeforms , something which an expertise in physics cannot provide
proper or serious commentary on in my opinion. Regardless of how much you know about gravities effect on a physical structure, living or dead, you
cannot provide an educated guess about biology on the scale that the show does, without actualy BEING a biologist. My graduate cousin has more
biological pedigree than does Mr Hawkins, and frankly, this show aggravates me greatly . Its assumptive, rambling and baring in mind some of Mr
Hawkins other "ideas" about extra terrestrial life, is based on what I percieve to be false and slightly arrogant reasoning.
If Steven Hawkins had stuck to shows about the universe and how fantastic particles are, I would have watched him do THAT show a billion times over.
But hes playing on his fame now, and thats just appalling. Lets face it , asking a physicist about lifeforms, is like asking a football player about
NOTE: I have revised this post to remove swearing, overt anger, and other bannable influences. I am however very angry at Mr Hawkins for throwing his
propriety to the wind by stepping outside his feild of genuine insight. I will never forget his true genius, but nor will I forget his apparant
