Time Warp


It's a holiday week, so that means I'm on "summer schedule" here on the blog. (My subbing stories from the week before break will appear next week.) Wednesdays are all about TV, and in this case we're talking streaming TV.

I was introduced to this show by a science teacher. (The full explanation of how I met him I will save for tomorrow's post.) I couldn't recall what it was called or if I could even access it online. But it came to mind because I needed a little something to keep middle schoolers entertained after they'd finished their finals. (Spoiler alert: it didn't work.)

Turns out, it's still live on Discovery Channel's website. It took me way less time to come up with the title Time Warp than I expected. I Googled something like "two guys slow motion video". I seriously lucked out.

Anyway, the show is about two guys filming interesting things using a high speed camera so they can slow it way, way down. It appears that it only had two seasons, but that'll be enough to keep you busy until our normal shows start up again.

Alas, the streaming online does contain commercials. But otherwise it's a fun watch.

You can find it here. I don't think you need to watch them in any particular order. Each episode explains who the guys are and what they do. There are 34 episodes available on the site.

  1. Hadn't heard of this one. Will have to check it out. The one about roller coasters could be interesting to watch!

  3. Don't have Discovery Channel, but it wounds really interesting :( I think the Barbarians would have enjoyed it too.

    Hope you are having a relaxing break!

  4. Try Gold Rush that'll have them digging for the yellow stone in their gardens, heh. Discovery sure had me "time warped" today for 4 hours watching miners digging dirt!!! but still fascinating. Its profitable in the Yukon. Happy New Year Liz

  5. Maybe a couple of kids were interested. There are so many shows it’s hard to keep any in order nowadays

  6. Liz,

    Happy New Year, my dear! Watching a film in class was always a hit when I was going to school and I'd think today is no different. The content that's available today is unbelievably cool and it's so much easier to obtain thanks to the Internet. Enjoy your break and may the good things in 2020 find you each day!
