Fascinating Fun!
3 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this series. It had so many fun things in it. The world ending, over and over and over. Tony Robinson's droll yet dreadfully comic narration as he presented it. Plus it was even true.

OK, I am docunuts. I am a sucker for a good fact based story. But this really is one of my favorites. How many ways has this planet almost ended? This series details them, and gives the hard science to back up that they happened, how they happened and when they happened.

It's very accessible and is at a level and a quality that I think the whole family can enjoy. If you or your little scientists have a bit of a nerdy streak then you all should enjoy this show.
