Redundancy  
An ad for "Hypercane" on the History Channel said this:

"A hypercane is basically a super hurricane."

Does anyone else get bothered by such empty sentences as these?

The Discovery and History Channels often bother me with how they dumb down their information. There was some show on History the other day about "The Universe" in which they were describing Lyman-Alpha blobs, and they were being likened to jellyfish in such a way that curdled my blood.

But remember when they used to be decent? reasonably worth watching?

You know, they still are, sometimes. The military stuff, yeah. But I feel that there's an exponential increase between how difficult the subject matter is and how much they sugar-coat it.
