Amazon CustomerReviewed in the United States on November 11, 2020
5.0 out of 5 starsDon't pay attention to 1-star rating
Most of the 1-star ratings I've read are simply about the acquisition and/or customer service process unavoidably attached to this medium, Amazon. The product itself is just as good as the first season, better in my opinion, and those reviews should reflect that.
Possible Worlds is proving to be yet another magnificent achievement in the world of edutainment. I couldn't be happier with the dramatization of these titans of science, accompanied by visuals that can't be beat save for a planetarium. Amidst all of that, we learn about underlying scientific principles and discoveries that are obscure lest you have the fortune of a great teacher who revealed them to you prior. If you have enjoyed any of the previous Cosmos, this new season will not disappoint. I can only pray that Neil and this team will come back for at least one more round with a 3rd season. As the Temptations once sang, I ain't too proud to beg.

K. R.Reviewed in the United States on September 23, 2020
5.0 out of 5 starsEnjoyed the previous season
I enjoyed watching the previous season of this series - as well as the original series. Watched the first episode and about half of the second last night on network television. Which is why I decided to pre-purchase the new season here on Amazon. I was just a little annoyed with all the commercials and the banner ads for other Fox network shows that stayed on the screen pretty much continuously during the network show. So I figured the best thing to do was buy the season here on Amazon so that I can watch the show without all of that.

This series really makes the history and science understandable. Looking forward to watching all the upcoming episodes.

5.0 out of 5 starsAnother great Cosmos series
These programs are excellent for watch-and-discuss teaching, from high school to continuing education.

FOX network have made this just about impossible for now, by their completely sporadic sheduling and release of episodes, but when they are all out there for streaming on demand, without the insulting commercials and intrusive FOX announcements and banners, we'll have quite a resource for making friends for science.

So just hold on before you make any plans that rely on availability, they might eventually get there.

Note also that the order and titles of episodes here and on FOX might differ slightly. You'll figure it out.
