Brain Games – National Geographic Channel
Here’s a family-friendly series that first-graders to grandmothers can play along with—and they’ll learn something along the way. Nat Geo has successfully found a way to make learning truly fun as it explores the human brain. The show’s April premiere was Nat Geo’s highest-rated series launch in net history, delivering 1.5mln viewers, and in a world in which edgy often wins the ratings race, it’s good to see a bit of good, clean and often educational fun resonating with viewers. Filled with illusions, challenges and mini games, we dare you not to play along.
