100 Humans a Netflix Original Series
Cast: Alie Ward, Sammy Obeid, Zainab Johnson
100 Humans tackles the tough questions that everyone wants the answers to, like what makes us attractive and are people racially profiling purposely?
In this social experiment television show, 100 people are subjected to multiple different experiments to figure out the answers to the world's most asked questions involving sex, happiness, torture and racism.
This comedic science show isn’t the most exciting thing you could be watching on Netflix today, but the three hosts did reveal some interesting discoveries.
They found out that most people (white or black) are more likely to shoot a black man holding a cellphone than a white man holding a gun.
They also found out that most attractive men who could dance had a lower sperm count than those who were less attractive and could not dance.
Some other discoveries include: men take longer to leave the house, pleasure has a stronger placebo effect than pain and, finally, the toilet paper roll goes over, not under.
I enjoyed this series because it answered a lot of my questions. Although the hosts were not actual doctors, they reached out to professionals who discussed the science behind the results.
Knowing this made me feel that the information I was receiving was correct and worth considering. Now, I’m not knocking the hosts’ experience at all because each of the hosts has a creditable background in television.
Alie Ward is an American writer, actress and television and podcast host. She is currently a correspondent for the CBS series Innovation Nation. Zainab Johnson is a stand-up comedian and actress. Sammy Obeid is also a stand-up comedian; he has released one comedy album, Get Funny or Die Tryin. So, when you get a chance, watch this series, it’s only eight episodes long. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
