Amongst several things I've been pondering for -- seemingly -- ever; how might one go about turning explicitly bad science into a TV show? I have a growing collection of books detailing statistical abuses and misconceptions, I've been reading Bob Park for years, and I find Ben Goldacre's stuff in the Guardian absolutely hilarious -- see especially his Bad Science Awards, which has all the makings of a book deal and so on. But I can't, for the life of me, work out how to make this into TV. And I bet I'm not the only one who's trying.
Comedy drama, perhaps? Following the fortunes of leading tech-transfer startup, "Bandwagon, Ltd."?
Actually, that's not a bad idea. Hmm...
