Great Series With Serious Flaw
on February 26, 2012
I am not going to do a involved review as others have done this very well.
The series is very slick and polished with a good amount of information for Astronomy buffs.
The only flaw with this series and to me it is a big one.
They have edited some of the episodes for people with very high Attention Deficit issues.
The episode about worm holes to me was unwatchable because they are constantly throwing multiple scenes per second.
Constant scene changes......to the point it plays tricks on your eyesight.
It is hard to concentrate on the information content because of the repeated back and forth scene changes.
I am hoping the whole series is not edited like this.....if it is I will sell this set.
As it is too irritating to watch.
I haven't noticed anyone else mentioning this IMHO flaw, but to me the way a production is edited can make or break a program.
The producers were trying to get too slick, and apparently decided if they didn't change scenes multiple times per second the viewers eyes would glaze over from boredom.
Great service from Amazon, with Amazon being the premier store to buy dvd's.
