Going Deep seeks out experts in diverse (and unusual) fields to teach viewers how to do things they know how to do — but better. Other things tackled in the show include tying a perfectly symmetrical shoelace knot and going inside the head of a housefly to learn how to kill it.

The series premieres Monday at 10 p.m. ET.
