We all love Neil deGrasse Tyson. His simple explanations of our complicated universe helps us understand the very complicated evolution of our universe.
Unfortunately, all Neil's charm and wisdom are far overshadowed in this series by constant flashing colors and scanning special effects that distract from anything that might be learned, like so many other new scientific documentaries. Let's hope that producers will realize soon that just because they have the power to throw special effects at us continuously, adults see too much of this now on a daily basis. That's fine for Star Wars movies but in my opinion, some reservation should be used when creating documentaries with realism.
Perhaps one could shut off the monitor and learn from the audio file? It's a 2 in my judgement.
