Product Description

We once thought ourselves to be at the center of the world, now we know that we are just a small speck in a giant universe.

Immerse yourself in an astonishing exploration of space with all five seasons of this epic series from HISTORY. Shot in HD with stunning footage from NASA and packed with state-of-the-art CGI graphics THE UNIVERSE takes viewers on a visually arresting journey across the galaxy to bring the beauty and mysteries of the cosmos a little closer to home. Delve into the cataclysmic events that set the stage for life, and visit sites where Earth s birthing process is still in evidence. Relive astronomical triumphs, from the first crude lenses that were able to magnify celestial bodies to probes that blaze to the most distant planets. See the hottest events in the sky, from colliding celestial bodies to collapsing suns. And venture into the uncharted territory of outer space through the visions, studies, and predictions of scientists and explorers on this journey of cosmic discovery, amazement, and adventure.

Now in glorious Blu-Ray, THE UNIVERSE MEGA COLLECTION includes all 63 original episodes of all five seasons of this epic series, plus the feature-length documentary Beyond the Big Bang on 16 discs.

I started watching this amazing series on the History Channel and got hooked. Incredibly well made and makes you feel like you're actually right there as they show it. Was incredibly lucky and got this whole box set for only 47 USD and only a few hours later it went up to 149 USD! If you want to know everything about the universe and have a great time at the same time, this is the set to get. It beats pretty much everything else I've seen when it comes to explaining the universe. It's quite mind blowing.

Imagine walking into a plush upscale model home decorated by the interior designers of Europe. Well, this is how The Universe Complete Series (seasons 1-5) is presented, this way, modern science program that's cutting edge, holds your attention and makes your ADD instantly cured. Rejoice; let the Universe series do its work instead of you paying attention. You'll be amazed, glued to your set, and not hear your phone calls or door bells. Graphics, stunning Hubble pictures, and renowned scientists speak the latest and greatest findings straight to the point in a way you never watched in a grade school astronomy class. Yes, science programs have set a new standard here. Blu ray is stunning 1080p details. All episodes are included. Layout menu: excellent.

Addendums/updates:
-The Universe: 7 Wonders of the Solar System [Blu-ray 3D] disc is also included, in the blu ray set. But 3D is obviously not in the dvd set.
-The Universe: The Complete Season Six [Blu-ray] (release May 15, 2012) is NOT in this set.

The mega set is amazing, but for no fluent english speakers it is a problem do not have subtitles on first season. The others seasons are ok!

It took about 8 days to get this movie in to Finland normally it takes > 14 days. Movie it self is great, nice pictures, practical examples, nice space telescope views, drone views, speculations etc..WOW!, really nice! Only small issue is that there is no texts in English. If I'd like to watch this movie late after work I have to keep volume normal to hear speech. Also subtitles could help also people in class rooms and hearing-impaired persons.

Amazing DVDs. I love that they are not superficial. But at the same time they are explained in a way that everyone can understand. Superb images and choice of topics.
Compared for instance to the TV series "Through The Wormhole" I think these are way superior in terms of detail, Science level and they captivate much more too. I'd give 100 stars!

We can't get enough of this marvelous series - and the price was great! This series is so soothing, moving, thrilling, calming... it has every kind of effect on the viewer. It demonstrates for us how very small and insignificant we are - and it also shows us how amazing and precious we are. The universe - and however many of them there are - is/are breathtaking in every possible way. Learning about space and seeing the BEAUTIFUL photos, the fantastic graphics, the way everything is explained - the scientists who explain things - the narration. I can't say enough. My husband and I absolutely love this series. It is one of the best investments we ever have made.

This series will give enormous pleasure for many years; I recommend it without any reservation.

I bought this as an anniversary present for my husband, and so far we are really enjoying them. We've only watched a few hours (we're still on the first disk), so I will try to update this if I have any additional comments, particularly negative.

As I said, we're really enjoying it so far. They are interesting and engaging, and very informative to someone with only a basic knowledge of astronomy and astrophysics etc. I am sure to someone already very well versed in this area it might be boring or repetitive, but it was just what we were looking for. I have also found it to have just the right mix of commentary and re-enactments etc to be very enjoyable. The images are pretty good as well. So far I have also found the variety of topics covered to hold my attention very well. All in all we are extremely happy with this series; I am looking forward to watching the rest of it!

This series coveres a lot of topics about the universe, yet the content is not very technical. Very well made.

Kind of hard to compare them, since Planet Earth has almost no human interaction on camera, while The Universe has multiple interviews with scientists while discussing the content. Planet Earth is pure visual spectacle, while The Universe digs way deeper into the technical aspects of what you are... Read More

Worth it?
You mean Beyond the Big Bang? That's available on the season 1 blu-ray, I have it on my hands right now. And the7 wonders one is available separately I think.
