I’m a huge fan of scientific documentaries and books and this one did not disappoint. My mind was blown in the very first episode with the explanation of our “address” in the Universe. Obviously I understand how small we are in the grand scheme of things, and I even understand everything laid out but seeing the visual of it was really eye opening.
Host Neil deGrasse Tyson makes for an excellent and passionate narrator thanks in part to his being a real Astrophysicist.
The episodes makes use of CGI as well as Animation. The visuals are truly stunning -they are both smooth and sharp plus there is really nothing more beautiful in High Definition than the Cosmos. The Soundtrack must be heard in surround. Seriously. You are robbing yourself of the experience playing it off the TV speakers alone. It is incredibly complex and detailed which paired with the visuals and subject matter makes the entire production seem BIG.
Tyson does tackle “controversial” subjects, most notably Climate Change. Thankfully he stuck with the physics and math, rather than the economic or political aspects, and pointed out the results that can be extrapolated exclusively from the data we have.
This is a truly entertaining and educational look at our Universe, even if you think you know it all. Recommended for all, young and old!
