5.0 out of 5 stars The Blu Ray Is In 16:9 Aspect Ratio 20 Feb 2013
By Hope Harrison - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I almost didn't buy this blu ray because several reviews and descriptions I found online mentioned that the aspect ratio was 4:3. However, I gave it a shot and the blu ray I received IS in 16:9 aspect ratio. The show itself is incredible and if you have any interest in geology or just science in general, I highly recommend that you buy this blu ray set!

5.0 out of 5 stars This release is in 16:9. 13 Dec 2011
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
You should refrain from posting reviews about things based on inaccurate descriptions. The History website (and indeed other retailers such as Amazon) have the aspect ratio listed incorrectly. This is actually 16:9 widescreen and a native high definition release.

It's stupid that the technical specs are still listed wrong on this website after all this time and it's even stupider that Amazon and History allow reviews to be posted from people who haven't even bought the item.

No wonder History's Blu-rays don't seem to be selling that great with this kind of pervasive incompetence.

Just keep in mind that this and the rest of the History Blu-rays incorrectly listed as being 1.33:1 are actually proper 16:9 and any reviewers complaining about the aspect ratio have not bought the item and are raging because they read the incorrect technical specs on the retailer's website stating that the Blu-ray is 1.33:1.

The DVDs might be cropped to 4:3, however. But if you're that concerned about aspect ratios in this day and age you should not be buying DVDs. Watching a DVD on a 16:9 HDTV is absolutely ridiculous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never knew geology could have me at the edge of my seat 19 May 2013
By Adam Vanderhoofven - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This show was on Netflix for a while and I love History Channel stuff. I watched maybe 2-3 episodes and that was when I realized that it was my favorite show. It is a must have for anybody that likes the Earth sciences. There are only 2 seasons right now but I know there's more coming. The explanations provided are stellar, and it is narrated and presented brilliantly. This is stuff that takes place over millions and billions of years, and it was more exciting in parts than some modern day Hollywood movies. I have watched each episode about 8 times but I crave this show. Each episode is a made for T.V. Series to fit into a one-hour time slot so they are between 45-50 minutes each with commercials. Another one that grasped me fully in the same line is the 8 episode series called "The Planets" and it runs on BBC. Seriously glued to the T.V for thes two shows alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating Series With Knowledgable Narration from the History Channel. 6 Feb 2013
By Zarathustra - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have the first six volumes of The Universe on blu-ray, also from the History Channel, and have watched them many times. This set on the geology of our planet looks great. The people who do the narration, many of whom work for the U.S. Geological Survey, are outstanding. If you have a blu-ray player, get the blu-ray set. If you don't have a blu-ray player, get one. Season One holds more than 10 hours of information on 3 blu-rays. This set features geological information on Yellowstone, Hawaii and Iceland.
I have already ordered the Season Two set and hope there are many more to come. Highly recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars A frustrated geologist 22 April 2014
By Apples - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
When I went to college, I had to decide to be either a geologist or an engineer. Engineering won out but I never forgot geology. My education predate plate tectonics, so this series really caught my fancy. I enjoyed it when it was first broadcast, and I am enjoying the re-runs anytime I want.
