5.0 out of 5 stars Modern, sophisticated layout of a science program we never had in grade school decades ago., August 11, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Universe: The Mega Collection [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
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.

Excellent review! I have been without television for the past several years, and though I don't miss much of the nonsense, I do miss sports and science docs. So I had just heard about this recently and pretty much sold on it already.

In the Amazon description, it says "BONUS FEATURES: 7 Wonders of the Solar System episode in 3D;" for this, though you say it is missing. Was your particular copy missing the disc, or does the set as a whole NOT include this bonus at all?

Hey. I am a new fan of the show and good review! Is it just me or does it feel like it was not shot in 1080p. Maybe its the CGI stuff but sometimes it feels outdated. Let me know what you think.
