A television show on The Learning Channel hosted by James Burke. The show starts with one person or idea and traces connections that it makes with other places or things. The show demonstrates how two seemingly unconnected things are related. It is really alot like Everything.

My own theory about why Connections 2 and Connections 3 are so bad compared to the original Connections and The Day the Universe Changed is that the original two were the life's work of James Burke while the other two are attempts to cash in on the success of Connections and on Burke's unique sense of humor. Unfortunately, one cannot do good research and make a well-thought-out presentation for much of anything, particularly not something as complex as a Connections episode, in only four weeks' time (assuming 13 episodes per season and the maximum possible research time per episode).

Sell-outs suck.
