Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman
Jul 03, 2013 10:00 PMTV Network - Science Channel
We don't like to suggest that the Science Channel goes after ratings with tawdry headlines/episode titles, but potentially that's what they've done tonight. Tonight, Morgan Freeman's Science Channel series attempts to determine whether or not sex will become extinct tonight. That is, particularly for the Science Channel, a rather provocative question. We assume that sex won't become extinct, but we certainly wouldn't suggest that it could ever become 'extinct,' surely there's a better word isn't there? But, whether or not they're simply trying to grab your attention, the fact remains that they've succeeded, haven't they? You're going to tune in tonight, aren't you? We certainly are.

Morgan Freeman, it seems, wants to go out and learn things and broaden his experiences. On this series, what he does is to examine a question that we might not have explored in the past, or take an old question and look at it in a new way. This week we get the season finale which asks "when did time begin?" It could be a touchy subject for many folks, but we expect that Freeman will even address that.

Over the course of of the four-plus seasons of "Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman," many an interesting idea has been put forth. From questions about sex going extinct to hacking one's mind to traveling faster than the speed of light, a whole lot has been explored. Tonight, the series will tackle the question (which we didn't even know was a question) of whether or not oceans think. See, that may sound ludicrous at first, but now imagine Morgan Freeman asking the question and all of the sudden it sounds deep and you're intrigued.

Here is the deal -- we have noted on more than one occasion this season "Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman" and we have done so because the show is brilliantly fun and quite interesting. Tonight though is the last chance we'll highlight the series for an extended period and it's the last time because it's the season finale. Tonight's question is whether God created evolution. We really don't know how Freeman is going to explore the question, but we're excited to find out.

Not only is Morgan Freeman a great actor, but he's a great thinker as well. We don't know that he always comes up with the needed answers, but he asks the questions and that is huge. Tonight, he'll be asking the question of whether or not reality is real. We imagine that there's going to be some sort of "Matrix" reference. But, whether there is or not, the question is fascinating. What if everything we think is there in front of us isn't there in front of us. What if we're only imagining writing this calendar entry aright now and you're only imagining reading it. We just blew your mind, didn't we?

We have always believed Morgan Freeman to be a brilliant man, and watching this series we are hugely impressed by the man's quest for knowledge. Freeman is, as this series has told us, a big fan of the universe and all its various intricacies. Because he's Morgan Freeman he can get really smart people to explain stuff about the universe and its intricacies to him and therefore us as well. Plus, he's Morgan Freeman so he's hugely compelling to watch. Tonight is the third season finale of "Through the Wormhole" and, with any luck, it'll be back come Summer 2013 for another go round.

Here it is, the raw, unvarnished, truth of the matter - we want to believe. This week Morgan Freeman is going to help make that possible because this week Morgan Freeman answers the question of what aliens look like. Are they short little green men? Are they like E.T.? Are they like the women from that "Saturday Night Live" sketch back in the day, the ones with eyes on their chests or maybe the ones with mattresses on their backs? There are so many possible choices and Morgan Freeman is going to, unequivocally, tell us once and for all what aliens look like. It actually seems likely that if anyone knows it's Morgan Freeman.

As it turns out, Morgan Freeman is greatly concerned with how the universe works. He wants to know all about how we exist and what exists outside of us. He hasn't simply lent his name and likeness to this series, he is, we're told, greatly interested in finding the answers the show searches for. How much fun is that? We like to think that Freeman is the puppet master here, pulling the strings to make the producers and scientists dance, but that he's more than that too, we like to think that he's the guy who actually does the impossibly difficult bench science involved. Is he? You'll just have to watch.

Did you see Morgan Freeman on "The Daily Show" when he was promoting this series? The man spoke eloquently (and hysterically) about the series and all that he hoped to learn working on it as well as the knowledge he wished to impart. We think it's all gone rather well. Freeman's thirst for knowledge has come through quite well and has inspired us to find out more about our universe. Actually, he's so inspired us that we've come up with a little plan to create a mini-black hole here in our offices next week. We'll let you know how it goes.
