Too legit to spit ,

I probably love this show

It makes me so happy as I plow though the back episodes. This is the perfect blend of uplifting hilarity and a kick in the pants to get back into science.

Matt sounds like the perfect blend of nerdy, British, Jewish adorability. Brooks just ditched us 🤨. Jesse makes the whole thing so much better musically and in general, gotta love that snark comedy. Then there’s Andy... oh Andy, so affable, such the lovable oaf, thanks for all the laughs as you do mental kick-flips under the bus for our amusement.
