  Cosmos: The Complete Collection
Release Date: December 2000
Format: NTSC, Full Screen (1.33:1)
Run Time: 13 one-hour episodes (7 DVDs)
Average Customer Review:
Highly Recommended

Description: Some 600 million people in more than 60 countries have seen COSMOS since it originally aired 20 years ago -- making it arguably the most popular science program ever produced.

COSMOS is the story -- passionately told by Carl Sagan -- of how the human species came to understand its place in the Universe. A seamless blend of solid intellectual content combined with potent emotional and spiritual uplift, COSMOS was a global phenomenon that transcended every conceivable demographic.

This vast international audience can now let their children experience the inspiration of COSMOS -- and impressively, after 20 of the most eventful years in the history of science, COSMOS has required only minor revisions and has proven to be strikingly prophetic.

"The Collector's Edition of COSMOS" is a digitally restored, re-mastered and enhanced version of the original 13 hour TV series. It contains updates by Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan as well as science bulletins and an array of new astronomical images. more...

Customer Review: "Cosmos" was sheer inspiration as well as brilliant education, the perfect antidote to a bad day, the ultimate escapist television. As each episode closed and the poignant theme music played, it would inevitably bring me to tears. I was lucky enough to purchase the entire set before it went out of production. It was the first thing my son, now 28, wanted to borrow when he came home for a visit recently. I miss Carl Sagan's presence in the world more than I can say, .... more...

  The Universe: The Complete Season 2
Release Date: October 2008
Format: NTSC, Full (1.33:1)
Run Time: 18 episodes (846 minutes)
Average Customer Review:

Description: With the DVD release (on five discs) of this, the complete second season of The Universe, the History Channel has now devoted a combined total of more than 25 hours, not including bonus material, to its documentary study of that combination of time, space, and matter that we call our universe. more...

Customer Review: I ordered this series with the thought 'what more can they do?' I seen it all in season one, it cannot top that. Was I wrong! It was even better. To realize that the universe is about 13.7 billion years old, and so vast, that it's totally beyond our comprehension and still expanding. A truly unimaginable thought, that. There are so many amazing episodes, one of which shows the largest objects in space. more...

Customer Review: First off, if I could give this miniseries 10, 20, a zillion stars, I would. Amazon just didn't let me count high enough.

Average Customer Review:

Description: Experience the ultimate insider's view of the Apollo space program by the man who served as NASA's primary flight director for over 30 years and examine recently declassified documents revealing NASA's plans to send men to Saturn by 1970.
