The Universe, Season 5TV-14Closed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


It’s been 50 years since man ventured into the unknown, and the heavens are only now yielding their greatest secrets. Season 5 of The Universe follows in the galactic path of this illuminating series, which examines what we know about space and the world beyond our own. Robotic rovers on Mars, NASA probes slamming into comets and deep space telescopes capturing violent images of the birth of stars are a few examples of what The Universe explores. How were discoveries made? Who made them? Dramatic CGI and interviews with expert cosmologists, astronomers and astrophysicists bring the history of the heavens down to earth and provide a glimpse into our future.

If you like astromony... you will like this. One of the best shows on the history channel in my opinion.

Same ol same ol

I can see how this season is appealing to someone who has never seen this type of programming before. As for my self, I’m done with it! Same stuff different package. Perhaps they should change the name to “The Solar System…stuff you already knew”.

It's a good show, but...

I loved the first 2 seasons and the third and forth were good, but now there is a lot of redundant information, and not much in the way of new and fascinating. I am happy that Mr. Marcy found his planets (really I am), but please do not make me sit through that explanation again. Plus add to that "Through the Wormhole", "Into the Universe", and "Known Universe", and you start to realize everyone is hopping on the "The Universe" type shows bandwagon without really saying anything new, They just slap on some new graphics and call it a new show. Don't get me wrong though those graphics are amazing, but I just wish I felt the awe I did during the first 2 seasons of this show. It was the original and I still think it is the best. It just needs fresh input. I would like to see more episodes that are of the quality of the season 1 episode "Beyond the Big Bang". I feel that episode was the high point of the show so far.
