The Universe: The Complete Series Megaset Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: We once thought ourselves to be at the center of the world, now we know that we are just a small spec in a giant universe.

Immerse yourself in an astonishing exploration of space with all five seasons of this epic series from HISTORY. Shot in HD with stunning footage from NASA and packed with state-of-the-art CGI graphics THE UNIVERSE takes viewers on a visually arresting journey across the galaxy to bring the beauty and mysteries of the cosmos a little closer to home. Delve into the cataclysmic events that set the stage for life, and visit sites where Earth s birthing process is still in evidence. Relive astronomical triumphs, from the first crude lenses that were able to magnify celestial bodies to probes that blaze to the most distant planets. See the hottest events in the sky, from colliding celestial bodies to collapsing suns. And venture into the uncharted territory of outer space through the visions, studies, and predictions of scientists and explorers on this journey of cosmic discovery, amazement, and adventure.

Now in glorious Blu-Ray, THE UNIVERSE MEGA COLLECTION includes all 63 original episodes of all five seasons of this epic series, plus the feature-length documentary Beyond the Big Bang on 16 discs.

Review: The Universe is one of the best documentary series that we've seen in a long while.  We've been covering it as the individual seasons are released and now this educational space-epic is being released in a huge ultimate megaset on blu-ray.  This Megaset includes seasons 1-5 on blu-ray, plus the 7 Wonders of the Solar System special.

Not only does dad enjoy this one, my wife and kids all love it, as well.  They're just learning about space in the classroom and they can come home to really SEE space in all its glory.  This elusive aspect of nature wasn't available for viewing like this when I was growing up...its a real treat.   This is without a doubt one of the best series on space ever created.  This set is a MUST HAVE!

The special features include: 7 Wonders of the Solar System episode in 3D; Feature-length documentary: Beyond the Big Bang; Featurettes Meteors: Fire in the Sky , Comets: Prophets of Doom , Ask the Universe , Backyard Astronomers 

Interest Range: Documentary, The History Channel
