Whatever happened to the TV show 'Brainiac: Science Abuse'? Watch

    Why isn't this awesome show around anymore? I used to love watching it, as a kid. I much preferred Richard Hammond hosting it (wasn't too keen on Vic Reeves, when he took over), and I loved both the characters that were featured and the experiments they used to do - most of which, I actually still remember, such as Dr. Bunhead, Jon Tickle, as well as that ongoing experiment to try and break into a (supposedly) impenetrable safe :lol:


    Here's some clips that I managed to salvage from YouTube:

    8pm Thursdays on Sky1 were never the same I don't think I watched it when Vic Reeves presented but I do remember watching it regularly when Hammond and Jon Tickle were on it. The science they did wasn't really taught in schools and it was pretty engaging because of the outrageousness of some of the stuff they did (soooo many explosions).
