Quite Good

Lots of good content here, well curated. On the other hand, it would have been hard to make a boring show about the economic significance of the chemical elements. The two main hosts do not add much, and there's lots of unfunny asides and filler. On top of that, the host will occasionally make a remark of dubious taste or bully a quest self-righteously over some chemical atrocity or other, like a teenager who has just discovered global warming. I suppose Oliver Sachs was too busy (or inert) to take the gig. The perspective of "Ungle Tungsten" would have been outstanding here!
