This DVD was for DH. He finds the idea of the universe a fascinating concept. He craves to understand where we came from, how the world was created and the concept that we CAN’T be the only life force out there. He began watching the 13 part series on TV, but missed many episodes due to life commitments. When I had the opportunity to review this DVD, I knew he would be thrilled. He loved how realistic the DVD was. The presentation of the host travelling from place to place via an animated visual device called a “cosmo calendar”, provided pleasing visual imagery to accompany the evidence. It was presented in such a way that people who are not scientists are able to grasp the concepts and understand the theories being discussed. The host, Dr Neil deGrasse Tyson, was entertaining, enlightening and showed a real passion for the material he discussed. His enthusiasm created a bond with the viewers, which drew you deeper in the material with a lust to know more. Overall, the series was a very well done journey through time and space. If you ever wondered what else might be out there, or how our world has become what it is, the first thing you should do is spend some time in the “Cosmos”!
We rate this series a 4/5
