Primitive & Terrible
13 January 2014 | by (Slovakia) – See all my reviews

Stephen Hawking's name will always be associated with a serious approach to the presentation of scientific knowledge and hypotheses submitted in the creation of the universe and the universe itself . His moderate commenting different ideas while proposing new , own hypotheses , are kept in the plane of scientific knowledge and logic very important . However, this is no longer possible to say about the series Stephen Hawking 's Grand Design , which as commented by an exceptionally talented commentator astronomy , but some infantile Trier , who do not seem to know the latest scientific advances , not to mention the logic . The series has been said amount of bullshit and super barberry , coated in smart retelling that try to convince viewers that these beliefs are true or almost true . The entire document is marked for demented telling viewers , as the target group should not be a normal person with some knowledge about the universe , but people who believe there any pronounced stupidity . What struck me most more uncertain , was the fact that evoked in me a feeling that virtually none words spoken Hawking does not belong , but some enthusiastic universe , which is the day before filming the series learned that there is a universe , and perhaps ever created . However, if the views and interpretation S.Hawkinga and Mr. Sorry . Hawking , it will be better when you get cramps in the fingers to such nonsense , as expressed in the document , never again does not degrade important scientific knowledge and logic . Mankind does not deserve such a big pile of stupidity in such a small series , despite the fact that he does not deserve anything. The film I reviewed the database and I gave him a surprising 2 stars for animation .
