I like Kaku-san when he's doing hard science (e.g. take his book on QFT for a spin) I'm not fond of this side of him who seems to lean towards comic-book style technical predictions for the sake of popularity, kind of like a 21st century Sagan. I've been pretty disappointed in his TV appearances as well. But then again, perhaps the masses enjoy this sort of stuff. Predictions are fine, but from a scientist's perspective, let's see a little meat behind it, please.
