4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding value for the price,
I wish there was a version on Blue Ray, but even on this dvd the CGI is outstanding, the full 5.1 soundtrack will rattle your windows as you see close-ups of our sun and the commentaries are never boring.
This is one documentary series that can educate the whole family without them even realizing that they're being educated. It looks superb on my 61" screen and sounds superb as well. And all this for a mere $20.
If you're into astronomy, science and superb visuals, this is a no-brainer!
EDITED - Nov. 19, 2012
This series is now available in a Blu ray edition for around the same price which should look even more spectacular than this dvd edition. You might want to consider it if you have a blu ray player. Everything else remains the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!!!,
5.0 out of 5 stars I thought I knew it all and this would just be a refresher,
I watched many parallel versions as Through the Wormhole and some older presentations from Steven Hawking. But none are quite as clear and compelling as this presentation. I watched an episode a night as let it mill around before the next.
5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, Informative, Universal series,
This review is from: How The Universe Works (Blu-Ray) (Blu-ray)Me and my son love this series. We have PVR'd and watched all of the series. Very informative and exciting to watch. A must see for anyone and everyone. In depth exploration of the universe that we live in from the very beginning, right from the Big Bang to the modern day, as well as how Astronomers and Physicists alike have discovered these fascinating explorations and findings. We are very excited and are looking forward to watching this series again on Blu-Ray.
4.0 out of 5 stars How the Universe works,
5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative,
This review is from: How The Universe Works (Blu-Ray) (Blu-ray)I personnaly enjoyed immensely. I had previously recorded some episodes but finally decided to purchase the series and I did not regret it. I also previously purchased a few astronomy books and now I can verify more closely the information presented; not that I think it is inaccurate, but as a teacher, I can reinforced what I have learned by seeing different points of view or presentation.
5.0 out of 5 stars How The Universe Works,
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value!,
This review is from: How The Universe Works (Blu-Ray) (Blu-ray)This Blu-ray for the price is a great value. The 2 disc set has 8 - 43 minute plus segments, all in wonderful HD. Footage is quite simply amazing on a large HD Tv.
Excellent for classroom education, and again at $18.99 you can't go wrong.
