borders on silly
It's sad to see what passes for science television these days. This series is absurdly melodramatic - not everything has to have an evil, world-ending plot-line. At the other end of the spectrum, the "real-world" demonstrations seem to have no meaningful value at all and should be insulting to even junior high students. This television program is to science television what the History Channel is to science to science television.
A Show That
I truly enjoy space shows, and The Universe was awesome... early on. The first few seasons are way better than the recent ones. The reaction I used to get from watching an episode was "wow." Now it's, "well duh."
Instead of talking about all the topics about the universe, the show seems to have a fetish for the apocalpyse. Most episodes lately involve asteroids or comets hitting the earth, or a vast array of other horrible (and far-fetched) endings to the world. Not to mention that more and more shows are becoming "countdown" episodes of ridiculous topics. 10 ways to blow up the earth? Come on. 10 worst days in Earth's history? (By the way, #1 is one that hasn't even happened yet. A total let down after sticking thru that whole episode.)
The Universe has lost its way, but still has a lot of great stuff in the beginning worth checking out.
A once good show that has lost its way :(
More scifi than science and learning. The scientist guys and gals in the show should go back to their day jobs, and furthering human knowledge. The first season is still the best.
