Cosmic Travelers, a boring 3 Part Series
27 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cosmic Travelers actually is a 3 Part Series © 1997/1998 Goldhil Video / Adler Media / Noriko / Global Science Productions

Cosmic Travelers: Vol. 1 - Comets and Asteroids Narrated by: John Morrison / UPC: 743452024537 Vol. 2 - Sudden Impact: Meteors Narrated by: Mike Pengra / UPC: 743452024636 Vol. 3 - Final Target: Planet Earth Narrated by: Mark Averback / UPC: 74352024735

This series could have easily been condensed to one. It is full of redundancy and general babbling on and on of those being interviewed. It also contains a lot of somewhat ludicrous information which is often highly speculative, frequently contradictory, pure sci-fi, or philosophical statements presented as facts. The last Vol ends with endless whinny self-promotion. It is also now very dated material.

There are much better similar series out there such as: Solar Empire (1997) a 3 part series Directed by: David Berman for: The Learning Channel. or the series Miracle Planet (2004) a part series Directed by: Hideki Tasuke for: Readers Digest Presents.
