Origins: the Journey of Humankind (NatGeo) Rated NR

A documentary on the origins of innovations which have influenced humans through the decades. Starring  Jason Silva.

The first episode of this series is about fire, which was frustrating because they talk about fire like they were there when it was discovered.  We have no idea how fire was invented. My guess is that it had to do with lightning, but there’s no way to know for sure.

What does make this series interesting, though, is the enthusiastic host. Silva loves the subject matter and is very engaging in his presentation.  The show follows each subject from invention to its current-day use and innovations.  I want to recommend it, but I was really put off by the way they stated things as facts that they have no certain knowledge of.  Unfortunately, it is a pass.
