Excellent Series
27 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

I've always had a keen interest in the wonders of the universe and I found this series to be very informative and well put together. No matter how 'out there' the subject matter, the show always stays interesting. Having watched almost all episodes up to the end of season 3 (and looking forward to seasons 4-7) I can highly recommend this series to anyone - especially those who know nothing about the universe. Don't be daunted by the physics or terminology - this show is only concerned with educating people about the incredible wonders of our universe in such a way that Joe Blogs can understand and enjoy. Not dumbed down, as some people have said, but user friendly.
