Blatant copy of BBC horizon episodes on space. Exactly the same episodes except with worse narration. Especially considering the advances constantly being made in these fields, you could at least expect to see some new subject matter. The show didn't chose to shoot any new interviews either, relying solely on the work of the BBC. I'm a big fan of documentaries on physics but practically every applauded American series is heavily supported by previous work. It's worth the watch if you can't be bothered to sift through Horizon's from the last 4-5 years to find the 6 relevant episodes. But they are all in there word for word.
