Why it Rocks

  1. In most of the episodes, Adam uses good, reliable sources to back his claim up, debunking many myths, and exposing the truth about various things.
    • Adam exposes the truth about Christopher Columbus, as Columbus wasn’t a hero, he was a villain, and Adam pulls up on how the earth being round was a common knowledge at the time, and Columbus didn’t believe that the earth was round, as Columbus believed it was shaped like a pear.
    • Adam also explained how AirBnb has been covering up many incidents.
    • Adam even points out how Panama wasn’t an independent nation when the Panama Canal was being built.
    • Adam even makes a good point on how walls don’t stop illegal immigrants from coming into a nation, as building a wall could cause an increase in illegal immigration.
  2. The characters in the show aren't bad.
  3. The episode, Emily Ruins Adam is really funny.
  4. The comedy part of the show is really good.
  5. The animation scenes are very clever looking.

Bad Qualities

  1. In the episode Adam Ruins Video Games, while remaining mostly truthful, he uses biased sources like Polygon, and most of what he said in the episode is to jab at GamerGate.
  2. According to Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim, a German chemist and edutainer, a portion about laboratory mice in Adam Ruins Science was inaccurate due to scientists being well aware of the limitations of mice as models for human organisms and the mice having a great cost-benefit ratio due to clinical trials being orders of magnitudes more expensive.
