It goes without saying that this subject matter is incredibly complex, but Stephen Hawking makes everything easy to understand in this show. I watch The Universe shows when they rerun and I've read a couple books on theories of the workings of the cosmos, but this show is better than either at putting things into perspective and relating the scales of the miniscule to the ever-expanding, which my mind never grasp before. The graphics are awesome, watch on a large HD tv if you can (but were still awesome on my 19" tv from 2003).

As a bonus, Stephen Hawking is funny! I wish they would make more of these.

This is a refined vision that will hopefully lead to greater works by contributing scientists. You are not going to become a physicist after watching it, but it will inspire you and many others for a better understanding. This has raised the bar for science documentaries. If as much effort went into educational engineering, we would all be a lot more motivated to learn and polish the direction of humanity.

Its educational and abstract, but done on a level that the average non- mathematician can follow. The graphical representations are great also.

Listening to Stephen Hawking is a treat, because even through a computer his sense of humor shines through. The visuals in this program are awesome.

Entertaining take on the most elusive answers to life's most difficult questions: Are we alone in the universe?
If not, what do other beings look like? How can we comprehend the vastness of space and time?
I can't say that I understood it all, but I did find it interesting and informative.
