On Blu-ray from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment comes the most stunning discs that share the secrets of our COSMOS: A Spacetime Odyssey.
This 13-part series tells the journey of our universe as told by astrophysicist Dr.Neil de Grasse Tyson. He transports us all through space and time giving us a better understanding of those who sought knowledge of our universe.
Using a Cosmic Calendar, he tells us stories in more detail than we ever learned in school about such people in history as Darwin and Carl Sagan. With a colorful display and special effects there is something for everyone to learn!
FINAL WORD: This is just an amazing series! The best part about it all is that Dr. Tyson tells us about our universe in terms that are so understandable. There is complex terminology here but time is taken to explain making each subject matter even more fascinating.
The animation is very cool and I have to wonder why a series like this wasn’t done sooner. I think I would have been a much better student of science if there had! Dr. Tyson truly looks as if he is having a good time explaining our universe and that sincerity and excitement is very contagious!
The Bluray includes four discs totally 13 episodes from executive producers Ann Druyan, Seth MacFarlane, Mitchell Cannold and Brannon Braga. There is bonus material including a five-part documentary on the making of COSMOS.
Special features of the set include THE COSMIC CALENDAR: An Interactive Look at the History of the Universe (a blu-ray exclusive), COSMOS: A Spacetime Odyssey – The Voyage Continues, Celebrating Carl Sagan: A Selection from the Library7 of Congress Dedication, COSMOS at Comic-Con 2013 and Audio Commentary on Episode One: “Standing Up in the Milky Way”.
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment brings this Blu-ray as an addition to their vast library of award-winning films. The format they provide is DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD.
TUBS OF POPCORN: I give COSMOS: A Spacetime Odyssey five tubs of popcorn out of five. Seriously, this needs to be in every school on our planet. There is so much information that normally I’d consider it overwhelming but here it is fascinating and brilliant to watch.
There is so much to learn that each episode is just another jaw dropping example of how big our world truly is and how little we know of it. From atoms and molecules to the stars in the sky I couldn’t stop watching.
In the end – this is the greatest story science has ever told!
