4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and informative, 23 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Wonders of the Solar System [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
This is a very entertaining series presented by a physicist enthusiastic about all different aspects of our Solar System (but not an astronomist - I wonder why!). The presenter, apart from his knowledge of physics is also very sympathetic and does not mind putting himself through all kinds of different experiences exemplifying processes prevalent in the different worlds involved.

The parts of this documentary series, each focusing on some aspect of the worlds in our Solar System, are well presented and fascinatingly illustrated using up-to-date computer graphics, but for the enthusiasts in astronomy and cosmology, something seems to be missing - you can't help but wonder if something has been left out or if things have been oversimplified to maximize the entertainment value. For instance, what we hear in the opening speech for each part is that all these other worlds are part of our ecosystem. Of course, this is inaccurate, as our ecosystem is defined in terms of the biological processes that infuence each other, and whatever happens on Mars, for instace, only has an indirect consequence on the life on Earth.

However, all in all, this is one of the most captivating and infomative documentary series of our Solar System out there. So, for anyone interested in the processes that shape the landcape and life on Earth and elsewhere in our Solar environemt, this is one of the best popularized presentations out there.
