A tv show review written by: Lee Sonogan
(2017-) 26min/Science, education
“Mind Field is a great edutainment show about human psychology. If you have YouTube Red, it’s by far the best thing I’ve seen on the platform thus far and well worth the watch.
Mind field is mostly replicating and demonstrating famous concepts in human psychology, like how isolation influences the perception of time, or how people conform to the larger group even when they know the group is wrong. It is an incredibly fascinating series that takes VSauce’s trademark style of mixing comedy with science, mathematics and philosophy that made him one of the largest educational channels on Youtube, and giving it a little extra budget.” – Samuel Cannon
Mind Field is an American web television series produced exclusively for YouTube Red, created and presented by Michael Stevens, the creator of the YouTube channel Vsauce. The first two episodes premiered on the main Vsauce channel on January 18th, 2017, followed by weekly episodes up until March 1st, 2017, the second season has begun airing as of December 6th, 2017.
Stevens officially unveiled the show by releasing a trailer onto the Vsauce channel on January 11th, 2017, one week before the series premiered. The format of the series is based heavily off Vsauce with Stevens presenting documentary-style episodes which focus on interesting aspects of human behaviour, particularly the brain and the influences of consciousness. Every episode contains an experiment, in which either volunteers or Stevens himself participates, that relates to the topic of the episode.

The bad thing about watching this series is you will have to sign up with YouTube Red. If you have not signed up with them before then you will be able to get a free trial of it to watch Mind Field and some other good shows on YouTube Red. I paid for it again because I wanted to watch the new season of Mind Field. Season 2 have broken my expectations of what I expected Mind Field to be. There are still two episodes left to come out for season two.
While a lot of science is difficult to gain an understanding of. This show explains in such an interesting way most people can follow along with everything. The ideas of the show will stay with you. Some experiments that they do have some very interesting results that will have other uses elsewhere. I recommend this show to everyone who wants an entertaining show to watch and see the processes of such experiments in so many different levels
“This is by far one of the most psychologically educational shows I’ve ever seen in my entire life. This show is beyond interesting. It takes interesting to an entirely new level.
I recommend this show to everybody! I love it so much! It’s well worth getting YouTube red, even for this show alone. This is now my favorite show. Along with my favorite youtuber!” – Eric Mertz
