Mental Engineering is a weekly roundtable discussion about TV commercials and our commercial culture. It airs exclusively on public television.
Each week host John Forde is joined by four smart fun panelists. The conversation usually begins with the way the commercial uses the mechanisms of social psychology, then wanders through history, technology, sex roles, spirituality and humor.
I just discovered this show a few weeks ago, and it’s by far one of the best shows I’ve seen on tv. Funny, poignant… simply great television.
