This 5-part BBC series examines the universe and humanity's place in it. The presenter Brian Cox seems like an amiable chap. He's energetic and personable in his explanations of dense material. It's a little uneven. The subject matter is so vast and the limits are so permeable that it's hard to define the premise. The episode titles do define the issues but the premise is so nebulous that one could go on forever on this subject. Brian is a professor at the School of Physics and Astronomy in the University of Manchester. He tends to skew towards the science of it all but he has a good amount of humanity. I like the third episode best mainly because he discusses the Drake equation with Drake. They're all fairly good with interesting takes. It's filmed well and it maintained my interest.
