Host Tim Shaw takes science out of the lab and onto the streets of America as he looks to amaze and dumbfound in equal measure. The irreverent "game show" offers the people Shaw meets -- and viewers -- the chance to predict the outcomes of a series of increasingly spectacular experiments, and once correct answers are revealed, the science behind each probe is explained. With explosive results and shattering conclusions, Shaw reveals the effect of everyday science on the world around us.
