Reviewing a mind blowing science series, Connected: the hidden science of everything

The connected series mostly focuses on science, but there is also a little history thrown in for good measure. The show explores some stunning connections, such as bird behavior and predicting weather, and classical music.

Which connected series we are talking about?

There are three shows called Connected available on Netflix, we are talking about the docuseries here. The show will give you an entirely new perspective on some of the pressing issues that we are dealing with.

For example, the 1st episode follows a roundabout journey that shows in the end how much humans depend on surveillance for survival as a species. Similarly, other episodes deal with dust, clouds, numbers and even poop, exploring all the strange connections.

Let’s talk about the episodes-

Each episode is a breathtaking journey around the world, and the visuals are top notch, with masterful use of drones, 360 degree cameras, animation, typography and timelapses.

The host, Latif Nasser has a deep and genuine curiosity that is infectious, and the docuseries does not shy away from showing his weird spontaneous moments, such as finding fossilised diatoms on the bottom of an ancient lake bed in the middle of the Sahara desert, and immediately deciding to find out what it tastes like (frozen-dried marshmallows apparently).

Which series connected can be compared to?

If you liked Freakonomics or Quirkology, this series is in the same zone of finding bizarre, interesting and unexpected relationships between seemingly different things.

The series is much more fun and infused with more enthusiasm than other science docuseries, such as Explained, and if you enjoyed The World according to Jeff Goldblum, then this one is a must watch.

CONCLUSION-

The recipe for mixing history and science the way Connected does, was first done by a BBC series in the late 1970s called Connections.

The host, James Burke was the original popular science reporter and author, who managed to capture some of the most stunning shots in broadcast history, including one where a Saturn V rocket blasts off to the Moon as if on command.
