I feel like this could have been definitely been executed better (see below), but I also think that it was a clever idea. The parallel's between the scientist's advancements and the present day opinions about them (drawing into light the (often poor) state of science in the public eye) was well done.
But there was infinitely more that wasn't well done. A lot of the comments speak towards how this is a disgrace for women scientists, but I would argue that the short fails ALL scientists, male and female. Look at how they portray Tesla! Here's a man who has, admittedly, a bit of an eccentric personality.... but I don't think he was insane enough to say "I was once a pigeon!" Even for humorous effect.
Then you go on to Einstein who is portrayed as, quite frankly, a horn-dog in reference to Marie Curie. Not only is this off putting and showing, in a way, women in science what we can expect from our male peers, it's just disrespectful to him. Nothing in history or biographies that I've read indicates that this was his true personality (and if there is, point me in that direction, I don't want to falsely accuse PBS of things). Having his character appear naked momentarily is just unnecessary to the point of the video. It adds a bit of humor, but not much more. (Also, Einstein-bobble-head is fully clothed in the later scene where he falls on top of Madame Curie, still unnecessary, though I think.)
TL:DR Good idea to start with. Humorously parallel scientist's contribution with the real world reception. It fell short in execution, becoming a deluge of disrespectful and non-humorous quips which end up making it look like the scientist, even today, has to be that level of eccentric to be a "good" scientist. This simply isn't true. While I agree that the treatment of Madame Curie was a 'bit not good', neither was the treatment of her male peers and predecessors.
