1.0 out of 5 stars opportunity missed October 13, 2010
When will producers realize that not all humans have only a 2 second attention span? I looked forward to this title enourmously. I was going to drown in the glorious modern visuals of the planets and their myriad colourfull moons. Instead someone thought they were making an action movie for teenagers, and not a documentary. Machine gun scene changes did not allow the viewer one moment of visual pleasure. A total frustrating waste of pixels, and a crime. Because when is someone going to finance another (proper) go at the same title now ?

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable July 21, 2010

I really liked this because it tried to stick to
currently known facts about the Universe. If you have
watched other programs of the same type you know
that sometimes they spend all of the episode guessing
about what you will find on other planets etc...

I also like that they didn't present things in a
negative way. Example; When the Sun explodes in an
estimated 5 billion years the outer planets will lose
all of their mass and all that will remain are the cores
of once giant planets.

When possible I like to deal in known facts not
theories. Anyway, this is just the opinion of one
person. Overall, I found it enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great road trip through the solar system February 1, 2011
I have seen many science shows on the planets, but this is one of the best. Excellent narration, really great computer animation, and easy-to-understand interviews with astronomers who really enjoy their work and area of expertise. A lot of them are women, which I think is a great inspiration to young girls who want to grow up and study the universe. A+

Very well done synopsis on our planets. Anything from National Geographic is tops for me. And this collection is no exception. Science, very well done, entertaining on many levels. The visuals are exceptional. 2 thumbs up.

This is a very fast paced movie and very enjoyable! My students didn't complain at all on watching it, and the information married well with my textbook and PowerPoints.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Review of the Planets February 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
An awesome visual experience for students studying the planets. Unfortunately, it is out of date by a few years. It's hard to stay up-to-date with scientific information that changes so quickly.
