Review of Big History
25 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Great show. It incorporates scientific analysis with historical records to create an account of how things came to be. It is a bit difficult to research the show itself since Big History is also the name for the scientific initiative on which the show is based. That can get a bit confusing, so if you go to Wikipedia to look up Big History, the first thing that comes up is not the television series itself, but an initiative by a group of researchers to investigate some of the most intriguing questions about history, mankind, the earth, the cosmos, the physical laws by which we are governed, and just about anything else that needs answering. The show itself is very compelling to watch. Cranston does a great job on the narration, and the visual depictions are great, including re-enactments with actors, exuberant scenery and well-designed graphic animations. The story told by the narrator is a concisely described historical account focusing on the key points and paying close attention to the facets likely to be most interesting. Highly recommend giving it a try.
