Liked how the scientist put together different branches of science to come up with good explications for life phenomena, but I was looking forward to the answers but of course they were not there. Oh, well...maybe it was just meant for the watchers to put it together. It was funny cause I'd be so put on by what seemed to be an answer coming, to just be let down slowly. The one thing that scientists are not getting (I am one of course,) is that lay people are no fooled by what is called "putting a name on something you have no idea about"....we think that just by naming something with a fancy name it explains it. IT DOESN'T....so if there's a fancy name coming, it's just another way of saying we don't know what the real answer is. Conversely, a name that is vague is an indication of the truth but never the truth itself. I remember Carl Jung's "individuation", which sounds minor and not important, but it is in fact the finger that points to the truth. Maybe that's what the scientist needs in order to gain the "right perspective" from where to envisage the truth. Life's not just bout life, and death is not just bout death.
The cinematography is blue/yellow. I understand that digital means giving up on the green/red section of the spectrum, but it should compensate with detail. This show doesn't.
