Discovery's 'Time Warp': The only acceptable use of slo-mo?

Tonight, the Discovery Channel debuts its new show Time Warp, which uses high-speed photo technology —  up to 10,000 frames per second — to show what it really looks like when a man, say, juggles chainsaws, takes a punch to the face (you’ll want to watch that below), or uses a Blendtec blender on gumballs and butane lighters.

Awesome, right? I know Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET is a busy time for your DVR you, so I’ve taken the liberty of linking to Discovery’s Time Warp schedule: Tonight’s back-to-back episodes repeat at midnight.So, is this the only acceptable use of slo-mo camerawork (outside of sports), or just one of the best? If you answer the latter, name your favorite slo-mo scenes… so we can judge you.
