I started watching this amazing series on the History Channel and got hooked. Incredibly well made and makes you feel like you're actually right there as they show it. Was incredibly lucky and got this whole box set for only 47 USD and only a few hours later it went up to 149 USD! If you want to know everything about the universe and have a great time at the same time, this is the set to get. It beats pretty much everything else I've seen when it comes to explaining the universe. It's quite mind blowing.

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.

Amazing DVDs. I love that they are not superficial. But at the same time they are explained in a way that everyone can understand. Superb images and choice of topics.
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!

We can't get enough of this marvelous series - and the price was great! This series is so soothing, moving, thrilling, calming... it has every kind of effect on the viewer. It demonstrates for us how very small and insignificant we are - and it also shows us how amazing and precious we are. The universe - and however many of them there are - is/are breathtaking in every possible way. Learning about space and seeing the BEAUTIFUL photos, the fantastic graphics, the way everything is explained - the scientists who explain things - the narration. I can't say enough. My husband and I absolutely love this series. It is one of the best investments we ever have made.

This series will give enormous pleasure for many years; I recommend it without any reservation.

I absolutely give this series a 5/5. Extremely informative and visually stunning. It will keep you watching for hours if you're not on a tight schedule. The facts, details, visual effects, expert insight and overall quality of every episode in the series makes it one of my favorites. The episodes go very in depth on one subject at a time (for instance, there is a separate episode for the sun, Earth, Mars, Saturn, asteroids, the life and death of stars, etc) and so you are given a vivid and very detailed description and analysis of the subject matter complete with expert opinions and analysis from several prominent astronomers, astrophysicists, etc. I learned more from watching one episode of this show than I have from reading entire textbooks on some of these subjects. And the 45 minute time-frame ensures that you learn all of the relevant information without it becoming a bore. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone who has any interest (even if it's just a passing interest) in space and the cosmos. Space science has always fascinated me; and "The Universe" is a perfect fix.

The mega set is amazing, but for no fluent english speakers it is a problem do not have subtitles on first season. The others seasons are ok!

I bought this as an anniversary present for my husband, and so far we are really enjoying them. We've only watched a few hours (we're still on the first disk), so I will try to update this if I have any additional comments, particularly negative.

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!

It took about 8 days to get this movie in to Finland normally it takes > 14 days. Movie it self is great, nice pictures, practical examples, nice space telescope views, drone views, speculations etc..WOW!, really nice! Only small issue is that there is no texts in English. If I'd like to watch this movie late after work I have to keep volume normal to hear speech. Also subtitles could help also people in class rooms and hearing-impaired persons.
