NOVA - The Planets (2019) is a 2-Blu Ray disc set that presents the eight planets of our solar system in stunning detail (including Pluto as well). Narrated by Zachary Quinto, this program's greatest strength is its pacing and tranquil feel. Rather than a program with fast pacing, quick cuts, in-your-face zooming in/out, and a lot of narration, this program in contrast has a slower pace, a tranquil feel, more sparse narration, longer individual clips, and no in-your-face zooming. Also, the comments made by the astronomers and physicists is not overdone or too intrusive. The footage and computer generated images are state-of-the-art. You can truly get lost in this program as you watch it on a cold night.
