Editorial Reviews

Immerse yourself in more spectacular space exploration with SEASON THREE of this epic series from HISTORY (TM). A virtual collision of astronomy and history, each enlightening episode utilizes strikingly realistic computer recreations and animations to provide unprecedented insight into the mysteries of our universe, and beyond.

See how NASA is arming itself with the latest technology to pre-empt an apocalyptic attack in Deadly Comets and Meteors. Learn how scientists envision reproduction and human development in Sex in Space, and explore startling new evidence showing the existence of universes other than our own in Parallel Universes.

From bizarre clouds to the hypothetical Planet X, from space disasters to space sex and the possibility of terrifying cosmic collisions, experience space in a whole new way not through a telescope or textbook, but firsthand. With THE UNIVERSE, you'll feel like you've traveled to the edge of the unknown.

Now available on Blu-ray, THE UNIVERSE: THE COMPLETE SEASON THREE includes all 12 original episodes on 3 discs.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing season November 6, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ok. As a scientist, I found the first 2 seasons to be quite entertaining even though the material is fairly basic (it's not meant to be for astrophysics geeks). The show has always had alot of bang and big and bold photos, very colorful, very creative. Then there's the third season... come on. Sex in space? what a crappy episode. There is so much that we know (and don't know) about space that they can go on and on and talk about the Universe for the next 30 years...but instead they got this snoozer lame episode about popping out kids in space with very little fact and mostly just opinions and speculation. They didn't even really bother getting into the details regarding the animal research that has been done. I had to shut it off...couldn't finish watching that stupid episode. And the episode which talks about neutrinos....didn't even properly define it. Good job, professors. If you are really trying to educate the public about space and you want to talk about particles, you should really go back to the basics of physics and talk about each particle and their importance...then talk about neutrinos. Instead, we get a smoke-and-mirrors light show which is supposed to represent a bunch of neutrinos whizzing around.

I figure that the people watching Season 3 of The Universe have probably seen the first two seasons or if not, after watching episodes from this season, should be motivated to watch 1 and 2. Maybe the people making the show should make it a little more sophisticated and elevate the level of complexity of the show...but instead, the show tries to oversimply abstract complex theories instead of teaching its viewers anything concrete; The Universe, our Heisenberg Multiverse of 11 dimensions, is just a cheap light show in Season 3.

In case you are wondering. 5 stars for season 1. 4 stars for season 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars It just keeps getting better! July 28, 2009
Format:DVD
Very informative, educational, interesting, and fun! The special effects and great narrative performance makes this show my favorite. This is by far the best TV series I have ever seen. I have watch every episode multiple times. Another great thing about this show is that it includes some of the greatest physicist of today, such as Michio Kaku. I highly recommended anybody who is even slightest interested in the final frontier to add this DVD set to their collection.

I especially love the episode "Parallel Universes". For all open minded people, this is an episode you must see.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Season 1 and 2 February 27, 2010
By K. Lock
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I give it four stars because I still enjoy the season very much, as a fan of such documentaries.

However, the standards set in Season 1 and especially Season 2 (which was superb and an amazing expansion of season 1), are not always met here. Some of the episodes for the first time seem to have a lot of filler and come close to being boring.

Lets hope that Season 4 redresses this balance, I have just ordered it on Blu ray too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST SEE FOR EVERYONE IN THE UNIVERSE!! January 3, 2010
Format:DVD
This is the first time I have ever felt compelled to write a pubic review for anything because of how strongly I felt about the series. After reading the other reviews to this series I felt that I had no choice but to write a review.

For the people who said they liked or loved it, that is great! But why? Why just write saying it was woth seeing?

In my opinion this should be shown in every school in the world and people who are already grown, somehow organize a way for them to be mandated to watch the series!

Now, for the people who didn't like Season 3. Too much Science Fiction? That just up sets me!! What was Science fiction at the dawn of the last centry in many ways became a reality. I hope you know where I paraphrased that quote from too! My Grandmother is 85 years old, she still thinks it is so amazing that you can fly across the earth in a matter of hrs and that we somehow got to the moon a few years ago.

I will agree with the comment about sex in space not being on of their best episodes, frankly I was really shocked to see that in the collection since I only watch the episodes on DVD and not when they are on TV.

Yeah there were some repeat visual affects, but if anything, it works as a great learning tool driving home the actual remember aspect and consistency of the material.

I would say to enhance Season 3, you should have watched the first 2 Seasons and have a fundamental understanding of our physical world, but idealistically everyone should watch this Season and the entire series. We need to believe in this life and the universe we currently live in and not about which god to worship or who to kill becuase people don't believe in their god....Believe in the here and now and what may come of it.

A wonderfull set of DVD that take us to a journey of reality about the Universe we live.
In my opinion the only negative point of ths product is that it has no subtittle, and a serie like this must have subtittles in various languages, including Portuguese.
All the schools in the world have to have this DVDs to exib it to the fellows.

2.0 out of 5 stars History channel presents: running out of ideas May 22, 2010
A Kid's Review
Format:Blu-ray
I love this series, I really do, season 1 of the Universe is probably the most interesting thing I've seen on TV. By season 3, it seems as though they've run out of things to talk about. Sex in space, really?? Really?? That episode was only worth watching because of the hilarious space docking visual metaphors they would throw in at appropriate times. Alien faces?? Who cares?!

There's interesting stuff here, but it's not up to the quality of the first two seasons. I will still buy season 4 however.
