Continues a fantastic tradition in science filmmaking:
17 June 2019 | by apollodigitalgoodsSee all my reviews

Continues a fantastic tradition in the making of science documentaries. Yes, I'm talking about the grand tradition of making science film documentaries with ever-increasing narcissism. Brian Cox has made a remarkable series of videos. About himself and about the universe as well. He's on a grand mission to teach humanity about the wonders of .. every zit on his face. In some of the scenes, his face literally covers the entire screen, for several minutes. Now, imagine watching that on IMAX! If he could please get even closer to the camera, we could perhaps see the individual cells in his skin, and the visuals could perhaps get more scientific that way!

Having said all that, I'd still watch this over "Last Man Standing" any day, hence the 9 stars.
