Going Deep with David Rees - Season 1

Anyone watching this quirky show? I think it is a hoot. The host is fun to watch and you learn some interesting facts along the way. Recent episodes include:
How to Open a Door
How to Swat a Fly
How to Light a Match
How to Throw a Paper Airplane
How to Tie Your Shoes
It is on the National Geographic Channel on Mondays at 10 PM (and also on Hulu). You can watch some video on their website. Here is a description of the show from the website:
This is a how-to show of epic proportions that teaches you how to do the things you think you already know how to do. Each episode of this hilariously dry-witted how-to adventure series, David Rees, humorist and self-made aficionado of the everyday, tackles unassuming tasks such as tying your shoes or making the perfect ice cube for your delicious beverages. Get to know the science and the history behind the seemingly mundane and uncover an unexpected appreciation for even the simplest of tasks. Think you already know everything there is to know about swatting a fly? Think again.

I tried it, but just couldn't get past David Rees.

I did learn how to tie my shoes, great show for the whole family.

David Rees is very dry, I learned to like him.

I have personally paid David Rees to sharpen a pencil for me.

I liked the "quick tie" he did toward the end of the show.

I also enjoyed the "How to light a match" show. It was interesting to see how the matches are made, the correct angle to strike the match and what part the striking strip plays in lighting the match. The fire lab was cool too.

I love the content and information this show provides. But man, that Dave Rees guy is annoying.

Every show starts with him whining that he wants to do something better, then he talks to experts on the issue and acts like a dweeb when they are explaining it to him.

I find David Rees very amusing. I don't think I would enjoy the show nearly as much if they had a host that played it straight. Lots of people love Jimmy Fallon while I can't stand him for even a nanosecond, so I understand how that feels.

I have been using the "Quick Tie" method to tie my shoes. It's not so quick because I still have to think about what I'm doing but it's a fun change.

I haven't watched last nights show yet but it was the season finale. I hope the show comes back for a season two.

They should title the season 1 finale "How to renew a TV show for a second season".
