Did anyone watch this weekend? I DVR'd and and watched last night. All I can say is I've NEVER felt so small before. My brain literally can't fathom how big the "multiverse" could really be.

It came on and I was going to watch it, but my wife was like "Ew, looks like science." and put on QVC instead. smirk

I think you'd like it raitchjay.

I liked the "history of the universe converted into a calendar year" segment. We (humans) exist only starting in the last minute of Dec. 31st.

The bit that we caught looked like bad animation, so we watch Chopped instead.

I find it intersting that you think I'm more likely to post about soccer than drinks. laugh

I really figured you were probably posting about a recent issue of Cosmopolitan. smile

(Ed isn't sure if you like Cosmopolitan for the articles or the pictures.) laugh

The drink would require some type of cooking skills such as mixing ingredients.

The commercials made it look like it was going to spend more time on science theory vs science fact. Seems like a lot of time to put into learning could be. What did you think manimal, was it more fact or possibility?

I thought the show was below average. Morgan Freeman's wormhole is a much better program regarding the study of the universe. But yes, the Universe is a very, very large place.

I think there was a good blend of both. What I appreciated was the description of things in easy to understand terms. Using analogies like a calendar to help grasp the history of the universe up until now was beneficial, IMO. I also liked that they started with the "familiar" (our own planet and solar system) and worked up to things we barely are beginning to understand (the edges of the observable universe).

I thought it was a good "first" episode and I'm looking forward to see where they are going in the future ones.

It's a sequel series, BB1. I'm surprised more people here didn't watch it. Or maybe they just didn't like it.

The narrator/scientist guy on the show was very motivated as a kid by Carl Sagan and his book...I think it's the premise for this show. He spoke of meeting him as a young kid and Carl signing a copy of his book for him etc.
