Episode One Hundred And Seventy – Mad Science: Don’t try this at home kids

Mad Science. Don't try this at home kids. Episode 170.

The Heroes are defeated, ground down by a controlling society. As the last remaining bastion of ‘otherness’, Mad Scientists reach out to children through the medium of educational television, trying to spark a sense of rebellion in the only people who can still hear them.

Educational Television in a world of Science Heroes, Supergenius Villains, and Pulp Adventurer-Explorers!

For any problem, there’s a technical solution. Even the problems caused by the previous technical solution.
And sometimes the people coming up with those solutions need to be reigned in, before their backyard nuclear reactor contaminates the whole neighborhood.

Alien scientists simultaneously guiding & observing ( and occasionally running from the catastrophic actions of ) the human scientific community.
