A wonderfully illustrated clear explanation of the key science (and the history behind it) leading to our current understanding of the Cosmos. I consider it a must 'watch and inwardly digest' if one wants to understand the big picture of what we are, where we are and where we might be going. The 13 50 min episodes provide compelling entertainment as well as education.

Absolutely worthy of its legendary predecessor. I wonder how many people had rewatched the original Sagan series in the days before the new series was even announced and eagerly wished that Sagan had the latest digital technology at his finger tips - or at least if a remake could be made, althought that option seemed questionable, because who would dare follow such a masterpiece. However, having seen the whole series twice over, I must admit that it's useless trying to describe how far this new series exceeds that wish of an update. Buy the DVD now and see it for yourself - with as many people as possible, because this is something everyone should be exposed to.

A truly great work of art, that is a credit to the late Carl Sagan.
Own it if you desire high quality production with equal high quality narration that clearly explains complicated concepts into layman terms, so we all can take part in learning about our Cosmos and beyond.
Sound quality is exceptional when put through a good home cinema amplifier.

Very highly recommended series. It is a visual pleasure to watch; the concepts that are explored are brought to life in a way that is easy to understand and appreciate.

Having heard great things about this series I was keen to purchase it for the family and was not disappointed. The series breaks down the science of the Cosmos into easily digestible chunks and is very entertaining whilst doing so. It looks and sounds fantastic and my children of 11,13 and 15 all found it to be brilliant. My wife and I also enjoyed it very much and learned a lot (engineer and science teacher) so it gets the 5 star treatment from us. Very much recommended.

One of the best advertisements for science and humanistic thinking I know of. Fantastic movie like presentation - not dull at all - which makes great use of current HD technology and surround sound, while constantly keeping an eye on the facts.

Probably suitable from age 6 onwards.

Sadly not yet available in German.

PS: Looking forward to Cosmos 4k ;)

This became my all time favourite documentary series. This is a fantastic series that brilliantly simplifies some complex science while clearing up many misconceptions about science - the antidote to ignorance. Telling the stories of unsung heroes of humanity who sacrificed much to improve our understanding of the world. A brilliant message delivered by a brilliant host. Required watching.
