User Reviews

 
One of the most stimulating shows for beginners interested.
22 November 2008 | by ying-12See all my reviews

This show is absolutely great involving many famous individuals from the science community and unbelievably fun cgi's. It's nice and simple for people just interested in understanding the basics cause in reality most people just don't know or understand much about our world, science, the universe,. They stray from getting to complex or into detail about subjects that people would normally find very confusing. It's by far one of the best shows for introducing people to the fun of the universe and science. They cover all the planets, our solar system, black holes, Galaxy's, the earth, moon, and much much more. I'm not only ecstatic that they have a 3rd season but impressed cause i thought they'd run out of material by now, but then again... were talking about the universe here:p
