    Episode 12
    Episode 13
    The one about Faraday
    The one about newton
    Episode 1
    The one about lead poisoning

    The newton one was awesome. I also loved the one about sound and the organ version of O'Fortuna

    The Clean Room and The Electric Boy were great forays into the history of science. I also enjoyed most of the others that had insights in this vein, as they emphasized science as both an evolving and personal human endeavor.

    The worst episode was the one about evolution. I almost slept while watching that episode

    I've only seen through the first 6 :(

    But I did really enjoy the properties of light which I think was 5.

    I liked some, disliked some. Depends what you believe in I guess. Can't really compare it to the original, it's too different.

    When Voyager was sent out I'm afraid drug use clouded thinking and we sent out things like "whale songs" and other irrelevant, but popular things of the (then) current culture. <le sigh> BUT! Maybe any advanced culture listening to this record will be sufficiently unimpressed by our lack of intelligence and choose to ignore us and decide not to annihilate us.

    Lol. You're right. What should we have sent though?
