Chemistry on TV...

Today when I looked in the newspaper, I just happened to see an advertisement for this new show on AMC. I was so happy that both bromine and barium were pictured with the correct atomic number. Yay for the proper use of chemistry in the media!! Since I don't have cable, I won't be watching tonight, but from some of the pictures online, it seems that at least some chemistry might actually appear in the first episode. Bunsen burners, Erlenmeyer flasks, electron configurations, all that good stuff. Unfortunately safety doesn't seem to be a high priority. In the first picture, the high school chemistry teacher on "Breaking Bad" is shown in front of a flaming Bunsen burner without goggles. But I forgive them this time, as I did enjoy this quote from the show's blog: "Electrons change their energy levels. Molecules change their bonds. Elements combine and change into compounds. But that's all of life, right? It's the constant, it's the cycle." Yes, chemistry is life.

Yes, chemistry is life. Oops. I guess you can tell that I'm a grad student. I should be saying "the basis of life is chemistry". I do hope that this show doesn't in anyway glamourize making garage meth. Do you think some people will watch this show and say "I can do that. I could make a lot of money." Very bad!
