Simplistic and cheesy, but with enough to make it worthwhile
12 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Compared to other similar documentary miniseries (Wonders of the Universe, Cosmos) I found this one to be somewhat sloppy and cheesy in tone.

In terms of script, consider just two things I remember from the third episode: 1. Stephen Hawking (or his narrator) calls us a breed of monkey, when in fact we're a species of ape. 2. Stephen Hawking (or his narrator) says that for a room floor covered in evenly-spaced spheres, they all experience the same gravity from each other, which is of course false because the gravity at the boundaries would be different than the gravity in the middle.

The first two episodes I would rate as 6/10, wild and wasteful speculation with pretty graphics and annoying music.

Only the third episode is worth watching, if you understand it's been dumbed down and hyped up for today's US audiences. But because it's twice as long as the previous two, I rounded the score up to 7/10.
