Well worth the watch.

There were great questions and answers in a good series, but a bit too much time spent in each episodes introductions. Every episode starting with a see-through statement of " I am traveling to (wherever) to find out what people think about (whatever). Obviously there only needed to be one trip to each place where they looked into the content for 3 or four episodes questions and answers, so I am really doubting they jumped on the jet and went again for each one. So, a bit of time killing fluff, but I believe it was well done and more stories like these need to be done, to help mankind see that life would be far better, not if we all believed the same things, but if we could enjoy each other and be friends even when we don't. We are all on the same boat which looks like it is about to sink because we can't all pick up an oar and row while busily needing to be right about what we believe.

Beautiful, fascinating, inspiring, educational ... and in some cases, surprising
Verified purchase
I found this series fascinating. I enjoyed the presentations, learned a lot, enjoyed seeing the locales through Morgan Freeman's eyes. I particularly enjoyed listening to what conclusions Mr. Freeman has been reaching as a result of his investigations. I bought the series here because for some reason my cable provider + DVR cut off the last five minutes of every episode and not hearing the ending, the conclusion, was frustrating.

Very well done.
Verified purchase
Very interesting and very well presented. Facts are presented as factual, speculation, myth, and conjecture are presented in very thoughtful ways but are identified as such. Gets you to think and examine without trying to convert you to any particular view. Morgan Freeman is an excellent presenter, and adds a very human element to the discussion and exploration.

Fascinating
Verified purchase
Extremely informative series. I admit I was a little ignorant about a lot of what’s discussed in this series and after watching it I feel far more educated and appreciative of others views

the series does a great job of being balanced and thought-provoking
Verified purchase
This is a tough subject. It is hard for any series to address strong viewpoints of multiple religions, atheists and agnostics. While not deep, the series does a great job of being balanced and thought-provoking. Each person can take something different that's consistent with their belief system, but at the same time advances their thinking and makes them more knowledgeable & tolerant of others. We definitely need more tolerance in an age of increasing, visible extremism.
