-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!
