Remember when the Discovery Channel was about things sciencey? Yeah, that was some time ago now. It used to be that they had programs about science, but then, as often happens with networks, they moved onto other things, like shows about monsters in garages and monsters in houses and people gathering seafood. They do still have Mythbusters, which is something to their credit, but otherwise? No, Discovery is basically a joke, and their digital cable channels are even worse. True, they have the Science Channel, but everything else is pretty much anti-science, or pseudo-science, and almost all of it is total dreck.
And this leads us into a new show of theirs, Cell Block Psychic. Yes, what could be better than a TV show about a con artist who goes around convincing the families of murder victims that she has magical powers that let her communicate with the dead? Why, if that isn’t science, I don’t know what is!
For more details on this unmitigated crap-fest, click here. Suffice to say that there is nothing, at all, even remotely good about this show. Everyone involved should be ashamed, and this fraud who goes around claiming she has magic powers, should be investigated and shut down; possibly even prosecuted. That’s the only way to stop con artists like her from continuing to bilk a gullible public.
