WIRED Science Now On Hulu!


I look very serious in this picture. Let’s all just admit that. I’m “up to something.” Clearly it’s the kind of conspiratory hijinks one might find in an X Files or a Cold Case. Whatever the reason for the faux intensity, it shouldn’t eclipse the fact that EVERY EPISODE of PBS’s WIRED Science is now freely available on the digital broadcast museum of Hulu. Sadly, WiSci (as we call it in the WiSci biz) is never coming back to PBS because the flashy colors and forward-thinking science programming triggered pulmonary embolisms and uncontrolled urination in its core demographic, that being Elderly Cranks, 80-112 (as categorized by Nielsen Media).

But their life loss is your life gain in the way of Edutainment! Now, you can get all of your favorite WIRED Science shows! Like, Episode 1! Episode 2! And who could forget that thing that happened in Episode 6! Don’t forget, it’s all FREE (a bargain at twice the price!)! Long live exclamation points!!!

Thank you, Hulu, for resurrecting the maggoty corpse of the coolest show I ever hosted and putting it on display like a caged zombie! No go forth and be WiSci-ed!!!*

    I just watched the Dr. MegaVolt episode that I had saved on the computer when It occurred to me I haven’t heard any promos for the show. Canceled. BUMMER. (Yes, I know at this time it is old news). Was there any other channel interested in picking up the show?

    I love the other science shows PBS does, but the slow narration gets on my nerves sometimes; I loved Wired’s faster pace and broad range of topics and well as your ‘geek humor’.

    If there are any letter writing campaigns out there to resurrect the show, sign me up!

    WIRED SCIENCE canceled; That’s a Low Down Dirty Shame.

    I agree that PBS dishes out some great programming….however Wired Science gave a lot of great insight into certain aspects of medical research that got my geek (I mean nerd) clock ticking. I mean nobody else talks about oxycyte which such zealous or makes me think twice about eating cool whip now I know what’s inside it. My real point is TV has gone to the reality dogs and educational science shows are far and few between.

  3. The Nerdist says:

    Thanks, Cass! In all fairness, PBS also has shows about how to make trellises. Their unique brand of lullaby programming is designed to gently walk the elderly into their graves.

    wired science was an amazing show and I just recently found out it wasn’t coming back….I guess they needed to make room for another pointless shitty reality show about people cutting trees

    I am also bummed to learn Wired Science is a corpse. That’s always a sad way to find out someone you loved has died, to see it on display as a caged zombie. Oh well. At lease I can skip the formality of sending a floral arrangement to the funeral, and just throw the zombie some brain chips.

  6. Michael says:

    Aw, man. No new episodes? Guess it’s time to edit the old ones into new episodes that make no sense.

  7. chris says:

    I had no idea Wired Science wasn’t picked up again. That’s a shame – it was the most interesting Science (with a big ‘S’) show on TV in the last 10-15 years.

    It’s great to see these episodes on Hulu though.
