I really enjoyed the series about Hurricane Hunters they did earlier in the year. I have seen the ads for this one and will tune in.

Let's just hope they get their facts right and don't try to scare people too much when (or if) they get around to covering the only space weather that affects us much here: that of the planet Earth. With what I have seen on cable lately, I'm not getting my hopes up too much. Clear skies to you.

I can almost see the hyper-kinetic cuts and hear the breathless dramatizing. Incoming CMEs will probably be given some more-than-subliminal, 'evil' sound, but hopefully not to the ludicrous degree as was done in the risible Armageddon. The looming threat of a major power grid outage will feature prominently, of course.

That's the tone that I'm expecting. Seems like most news programs / reporters now want to over dramatize. Frankly I'd like to see the weather channel get back to showing the weather.

Yeah, the "our placid star which at ANY MOMENT COULD ERUPT AND EXTINGUISH ALL LIFE ON EARTH" type thing gets old. Seems to be the tone of most of the recent "science" programs.
