Besides that, the programs themselves are quite informative and live up to the title - they act as a good general guide to the planets. Earth is not covered, but that's okay. I guess the producers are assuming you're already familiar with the third rock from the Sun. However, all the others - including Pluto - are included.
My only gripe - and the reason for the 4 stars, as opposed to 5 - is the lack of extras, although, to be fair I didn't expect a whole lot. There are two very short videos about the Sun and Moon - standard def, I think - and neither run more than five minutes long. It would have been nice to see how the graphics were created or to see some other behind-the-scenes stuff but I understand it costs money to produce that.
Anyway, if you want something to show off your Blu-Ray then this is a definite candidate. If you're new to the planets you'll find it fascinating and informative and even if you're not new to these alien worlds, you'll probably find the effects spellbinding.
On my 60" TV, the graphics were good, but nothing special. Again, at times seemed somewhat generic. This was particularly noticeable if you watched multiple episodes in a row.
