“This is another document show is one of only ones I can watch. I remember seeing some of this when I was about seven years old, it helped intro me and get me a little interested in science.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI love the show covers just about all different fields of science which keep the show from ever getting dull. Each episode goes at a good pace and has the right length, with it they cover a good amount in each of the field. I really like how researched the subject matter is and each person interviewed is always explain things with simplicity they donu0026#39;t overcomplicate what their talking about and avoid using big word or at least too many of them, donu0026#39;t get me wrong I donu0026#39;t mind fancy terms as long as I understand the meaning behind them.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe cinematography is great, really like the amount of images they use and some impressive photographic shots from a star or two in our solar system, the environment that a scientist or archaeologist is investigating, the habits of an animal captured, and any other thing in this world or universe you wonder about.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere are plenty of good doc episodes like one about Fractals and how their common place in our world, another about the mystery of math whether it was really invented or encoded from the beginning of time and how it applies to everything around us. Another doc about the new scope launched into space and all the new things in our solar system uncovered. Itu0026#39;s true that not every doc is going to grab you, thatu0026#39;s probably just me it sorts of depends on the subject matter and where your interests in science lie, which is part of the reason the show has variety thereu0026#39;s something for everyone.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eReally like the theme song which is solid and fits as it sorts of just sings sense of wonder.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOverall, if science is your subject and youu0026#39;re a nut for it, or just a casual person with casual curiosity then like all scientific investigations this is a show worth looking into. There is no limit to our sense of wonder.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRating: 4 stars”
