Excellent science television
29 October 2012 | by siaonSee all my reviews

This (all too short) series is exactly what television today is lacking. The Learning Channel (TLC) has nothing you can learn. Discovery channel is suddenly all about the supernatural and ghosts. You're lucky if you find anything except sad puppies and Cesar Milan on National Geographic; certainly not anything geographic.

This show manages to distill down some advanced principles of reality into a digestible format that still intrigues and tickles the mind of the viewer. It being narrated by an icon such as Stephen Hawking makes it all the more worthwhile.

It is not afraid to confront people with their idiotic and downright delusional believes, with the evidence to back it up.

I highly recommend this series to anyone that loves to learn anything about the world.
