THE S-TEAM

In 2002, a crack scientific unit got pissed off with the constant stream of superstitious and pseudo-scientific beliefs. These men promptly produced books, magazines, podcasts, blogs and TV shows. Today, still unheeded by the believers, they survive as skeptics of fortune. If you have some woo, if no one else can help uncover a rational explanation, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... The S-Team.

(Hmm. ASCII singing not quite as awe-inspiring as I was hoping.)

I used to love the bit at the end of each episode where they always left in a warehouse, conveniently stocked with books on logical fallacies, good scientific evidence, and killer podcasting technique.

Oh that is superb! Every time I look at I start laughing. ND Tyson who pity's the fool who think Pluto is a planet is my favourite.

Love it - "Hannibal" Novella, "BA" Tyson, "Face" Grothe and "Mad Dog" Plait - wish they really were a TV series.
