Astronomy? Beginner? This is for you!
4 September 2010 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

It really feels like the understand. Why? Because what i was looking for was a show that could teach me about the big damn universe. And so far, it really has. The only problem is, I've gotten addicted, and now i want around 600 episodes, not 50.

Since i have already finished all the seasons, i have had to watch them all over again! Which is great, coz documentaries like this, is not like movies. Good movies you watch once. Great movies you watch twice. Favorite movie, you watch until you hate it. But a show like this, you never stop with! So much fact, some simplified so all can learn and understand!

I love the space. It's big, and i want to learn more about it! This show has helped my understand so much! So. Do you like space? Do you like astronomy? Well then, you should really, really watch this show! It is so great!

Give it a chance, and you will be truly amazed by the show's quality.
