Awesome show with lots of passion.
27 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you agree with the first reviewer's comments, then I guess I'm a 12 year old. I do not believe this series was geared toward the "professors" of the world but average normal people who can relate to terms like "super sonic speed".

The CG visuals are awesome and give you a real image of what they are trying to explain more than any 2d pictures taken by HST could ever help. The scientist an people involved in the show have a real love and passion for what they are saying and make the show genuine and very appealing.

All in all I love this show and think it is worth watching when ever it's on, but I'm no professor emeritus and I'm not cool enough to have a "power off switch" on my T.V.

So if your a 12 year old at heart like me, then you will really like this show!
