He's okay, but nothing will EVER beat Mr. Wizard! Mr. Wizard did awesome stuff like pulling apart fireworks and showing kids how to do it! It was his show that got me interested in chemistry. As a diabetic, I've always been interested in science because as a kid I wanted to know why my body was screwed up and nobody else's was. So I got a keen interest in biology. When I saw the Mr. Wizard episode where he pulled apart the fireworks, however, I began to love chemistry and have loved it ever since.
