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

Planet Earth is pure visual spectacle, while The Universe digs way deeper into the technical aspects of what you are... Read More

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.
