NOVA is basically just a informative show that covers various topics usually during an hour episode. I especially like the episodes about wild animals. Some of the topics, like physics and science and molecules and such are boring. Overall, this is my favorite science based show. It has great theme music. Basically, I used to watch NOVA every Tuesday night at 8:00 with my mom and it was a little ritual. I loved it. Then they moved it to 9:00 and it was too late for me (I was little). We don't watch it anymore, but it's still a great, informative show.
