Top critical review
Not intended for adults.
on 17 October 2015
Rather more waffle and repetition than I'd like. A little too much: "Hey, like, wow, man". A very pleased with itself and intrusive sound track. Some fine graphics, decent explanations and understandable enthusiasm, but three programs worth of material stretched into five. Brian Cox is an acquired taste - plainly no dolt ( seen him interviewed ), but hard not to suspect he was artfully chosen to appeal to the yoof audience - good luck with that! We failed to acquire the taste - he was, if anything, even more annoying by the end of the last episode. My son would like his job, and by God, I see why! Beats working for a living.
If you are looking for something for adults try the older BBC series 'The Planets' - in my opinion this absolutely THRASHES this newer offering.
