C'mon. Surely they can do better than that.
There's just too much "alternative medicine" quackery to cover adequately in just one show. Perhaps they should have split it up into two or even three episodes.
See, I know that skeptics are already convinced. By and large, we've seen the evidence that it's all bullshit. And I know that hardcore believers will never be convinced that it doesn't work. So there you have the two extremes.
Somewhere in the middle, though, are the Undecided Masses...those people who might be persuaded to turn their noses up at this chicanery - but only if they can be reasoned with. Only if they can be shown the evidence. Only if they can be educated.
I have to give episode 2 a C- at best. It was long on the preachiness, long on the abuse, long on the "preaching to the choir" factor, and very, very short on actual analysis.
