Science Show done with excellent drama and storytelling panache. engaging and digestable for the non-scientist but full of untold stories for those more familiar with the subject. Each episode will affect you as much emotionally as it will educate you and not just about science. Just Awesome.

An awesome blend of science, history and special effects that hopefully will have a similar effect on this generation as the original series. I tried to get my son to watch the original but the dated effects could not hold his attention. However, the spectacular effects in this new one kept his attention so much that I had to stop it frequently to answer the questions he had about the content. As for the science, it pulls no punches and Neil Degrasse Tyson is a great host, once you become accustomed to his unique presentation style (which is a lot like he speaks in his podcast).
