I'm a science DVD junkie, but I couldn't even finish watching this garbage. This video has truly state-of-the-art visuals--or at least, it would if it had been released in 1972 instead of 2007. I've seen local car-dealership commercials with higher production values. And I'm pretty sure that the narrator was actively trying to bore me. I wish I had just spent the money on another episode of NOVA.

I thought it was made in the 70s until I heard references to the mid to late nineties! The production quality is so poor, it seems at least 30 years older than it is. At times, the film shook, like a broken VHS tape. Don't let the tin casing, and free copy of Marooned fool you. This is a terrible item and a true waste of money. The subject material also is very rudimentary, but helpful for young children or school classrooms. Production quality is distracting though...

I was expecting something informative and entertaining; unfortunately, I got neither. Most of the information was either boring and appropriate for a grade school audience or not explained adequately or properly. The visuals and writing are also extremely poor. I love astronomy and learning, I found this DVD to be very juvenile. My spouse likes fun interesting facts and thought the DVD was boring. Hence, I would not really recommend this for anyone...maybe little kids interested in science...not sure how entertaining they would find it though.

I'm really interested in astronomy, so I picked this up one day. I wish I had gotten something else instead though, because this is terrible. I can't even watch a single DVD (there are 5) in one sitting because it is literally so boring that it puts me to sleep. The narrator's voice is extremely dull, the guy(s) they interview are dull, the graphics and pictures are "meh" at best, and the music is fairly soothing; which is a great combination to have you snoring within 20 minutes of putting this in.

So, if you are having trouble sleeping at night, I would highly recommend getting this. However, since I bought this to try to learn more about astronomy, and not be bored out of my mind, I can't recommend it for that.
