Product Description

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

Immerse yourself in an astonishing exploration of space with the first three seasons of this epic series from HISTORYTM. 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 available on stunning Blu-ray, THE UNIVERSE MEGASET includes all 43 original episodes of the first three seasons of this epic series, including the feature-length documentary Beyond the Big Bang, on 10 discs.

I owned the first three seasons of this EPIC series on dvd and had been disappointed by the double black bars (fullscreen letterbox) presentation of this series.

Other reviewers have covered the content of this series very well and I doubt that I could do any better, I recommend this to anyone who is interested in knowing more on the subject of astronomy and slightly into the fantasy/speculation side of where technology will go in the future.

The one thing that I did not find in any of the other reviews or in any of the product pictures that was a concern of mine was the size/look that this collection would have on my shelf. When I got these blu-rays in the mail I was pleasantly surprised to find that they are the 3 single packaged seasons of The Universe inside of a decorative cardboard box so if you want to leave them in the box on the shelf that would be fine or you could take them out and it would be as if you had purchased each separately (which is what I'll be doing since I'm also buying season 4 and it would look strange in my opinion to have 3 boxed and one separate). So if packaging was something holding you back from taking advantage of the price difference between buying the seasons separately or in this package deal then you can rest assured that this package is the better alternative. Hope this helps.

Imagine walking into a plush upscale model home decorated by the interior designers of Europe. Well, this is how The Universe season 1-3 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.

Addendum: a larger set is now available, released date April 26, 2011 to encompass all 5 seasons, The Universe: The Complete Series Megaset [Blu-ray]. It also includes, The Universe: 7 Wonders of the Solar System [Blu-ray 3D].

If you're looking at this set because you have the DVD you won't be disappointed. I'm wrapped with it! Its good value for the price, the Blu-ray disk set is nicely presented, the graphics is all I hoped for and the disks have no nasty habits!

I'm eagerly awaiting the next one.

In general this series is excellent. However the episodes vary in quality and the amount of information presented. The Blu Ray adds the the production quality.

It's simply beautifull. I'd like to do an sugestion: it could be better with subtitles (english and other languages) because is a great educational material for everybody.

I have only watched through Season 1 and I am already hooked. I am watching this on a Sharp Aquios 60" and PS3 as the blue ray player. It looks really good! Video is clear and audio is easy to understand.
