Top Gear's Richard
Hammond is not only known to the adult community (ala Top Gear) but
even the younger kids know Richard from his science series aimed
at this generation called Richard Hammond's Blast Lab Kersplat!
Featuring over two hours of crazy experiments, Hammond and friends
takes the viewer on an interesting journey as two teams attempt to
outdo each other in each episode. If one team fails, they need to
blow up their prizes but to the victor come the rewards.
features all 6 episodes from season one and contains some hilarious
episodes that include rockets, weighing Ninja rats to more serious
experiments such as building hovercrafts. The series is quite down
to earth and is well presented by Hammond who has a real charisma
that it's easy to see why he is so likeable.
This series is
currently screening on ABC and on DVD, features HD video and audio
that looks fantastic, especially some of the colours and of course
the look of his "secret" laboratory. Definitely one for the younger
viewers but older viewers may get a thing or two out of this as
well. Definitely one of Christmas!
