Rated 5 out of 5 by from Watcher75 This is not the current Cosmos as shown on TV in 2017 it is a remastered to Blu-Ray of the old 13 part series Cosmos from many years back. Narrated by Astronomer Carl Sagan with his enchanting voice and mannerisms. In a voyage of awe and discovery of our planet earth and the universe beyond he shows how small we are and how gigantic is the universe. Carl brings to life past persons and explorers to our screens and explains how far we have come as a species. There is a warning to our world leaders of our ways and if they took notice wars would become extinct. The music in Cosmos is by Vangellis and is mesmerizing a reward of its own. A personal Voyage is not dated by time but alive and a wonder still of where we all live. Buy it and place it in your top 50, children will come to know it be awe struck by our Little Blue Dot . (The Cosmos is all that ever is,Was and will be. CS)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upscaled blu-ray but the best release yet! As a fan of Carl Sagan back in the late 1970's, I watched this series when it was originally released in 1980 and recorded it on my Philips N1700 video recorder (I was an early home video redcorder adopter and this was pre VHS and Betamax). Since then, I've owned it on VHS, DVD and now blu-ray. Well, it is on blu-ray but it's not from an HD master... it has been upscaled. Now I know what you are thinking, upscaled means it is no better than the DVD version played via an upscaling DVD player. That is typically true but, comparing this to my DVD copy there have been substantial improvements in sound and colour. It looks the best it ever has and I for one am glad I made the purchase. If you are happy with your DVD version then stick with it but if you are a true fan then the blu-ray version is a welcome upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The science teacher you wish you had in school Carl Sagan is an excellent communicator and storyteller, and its very easy to see why the series was so widely watched on its release. It still captures your imagination and curiosity with ease. Way better than Neil deGrasse Tyson's version, the original and the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent series Winning this from Via Vision in a competition, allowed me to rediscover this masterpiece of a series. The video, while upscaled looks great considering the source material, and the audio is exceptional. Sagans voice has never sounded so clear, and the score is extremely immersive and creates a feeling of euthoria. 100% recommended for fans
