      I won't waste people's time talking about the actual content of "The Universe". This has been one of my favorite science series for the last several years but if your bored by the content, you won't be thrilled enough by the 3-d version to make you fall in love with it. The price is right however, at $9.99 to give it a try if your so inclined. It's not up to the demonstration quality of your favorite 3-d action movie but the CGI outer space animation is very effective and graphically pleasing to the eye. Even the scenes with the individual physicists talking to the camera are enhanced by the added depth and 3-dimensional perspective. Recommended especially to people who are already fans of the series or science series in general.

      Universe good BUT no what I expected

      This film does little to excite. Blu ray is filled with tons of probability but lacks any actual content that isn't computer generated. Film sets of plenty scenarios, but delivers very few facts and real imaging. I wasn't pleased with animation. If you are expecting NASA, Hubble, or telescopic images don't get this one. The film's 7 wonders may leave you wondering why did you buy this one. Not bad for entertainment but does very little for education. Many hypothesis formulated and computer generated outcomes based on current knowledge.

      Well-produced episodes. 3D adds a lot

      When I ordered this, I wasn't sure what to expect. I had not seen the series on TV so it was all new to me. The documentary episodes are all very well produced and certainly worth watching if your interested in space and space exploration. The "feature" of this DVD of course is that it is in 3D. It brings many of the scenes to life. The only downside is, and admittedly this is *very* minimal, these episodes contain a lot of on-camera interviews with scientists and other subject experts. In some of those cases, the use of 3D simply seems out-of-place. However, as I said, that's a very minor complaint. Overall, it's well worth the watch!

      if you want to see lot our tennis clubs are saying for the first time in Space. And watching it in 3-D to be exact it comes alive on your screen this works and I can print movie it looks like you're passing stars and planets. This is just such a fantastic science thing. That I've just gone in love with this. Since science programs are being cut back in public schools today we might want to consider this for your kids together over the science in my life's. Buy it if you can

      Awful; Painful.

      Clearly, the target audience is not.., very bright. Constant repetition, of opinion, of people standing in front of a camera with lots of hand waving.., and repetition. No actual science. No actual images. All 1990's technology, computer-generated supposed, possible, predicted, potential drawings of scenarios that are intended to desperately try to keep the attention of an adolescent with more tattoos and cigarettes than teeth.

      3D graphics were underwhelming

      The content of this dvd is interesting and it is in 3D, but the effects were just not as fun to watch as other films like Avatar, Kong Island, etc. The 3D graphics seemed to recess into the screen, instead of jump out at you. The price was a good value and I'm glad to have it in my collection, but probably won't watch it very often.

      The reviews for this may have set my expectations a little too high going in to it. It's a solid series, but in my opinion there are other educational movies with far better 3D scenes (Under the Sea 3D, like the potato cod scene) and graphics in them and others that offer better "universe in a nutshell" summaries (Seth McFarlane's reboot of Carl Sagan's Cosmos). Not a regrettable purchase, but didn't quite wow me.

      Overall the movie was good. I really liked the special effects in it, both the 3D and Non-3D versions. I also liked how they put the story together. I have seen the story done before a couple of times and this one is just as good as the others. Aside from the Special features not being as much as I would have thought I really liked the movie and it was a good buy and addition to my 3D collection. :)
