What Hap­pened Next?

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Mon­day, 9.30pm, Dis­cov­ery If you pre­fer your TV en­ter­tain­ment in smart lit­tle bites, as many seem to in the age of Twit­ter, then this is your show. Imag­ine Fun­ni­est Home Videos with a sci­en­tific bent. ‘‘ The world’s most amaz­ing video clips and the in­cred­i­ble science be­hind them,’’ says the breath­less English nar­ra­tor. ‘‘ The scari­est, the most un­be­liev­able and the fun­ni­est.’’ Then it’s down to a sin­gle ques­tion, like a low-rent ver­sion of Brain Games (above) as peo­ple fall off tread­mills, get hit by ex­plod­ing pave­ments, and nearly flip in boats and off quad bikes: what hap­pened next? The ac­tion freezes and help­ful op­tions ap­pear on screen, along the lines of: A, will this boat flip?; or B, is this pro­gram a load of cheap junk? We get to make our guess, the screen un­freezes, and the science tells us why we were so wrong.
