Anyone else been watching this?
It's really wonderful. Reminds me a bit of Cosmos, and Brian Cox is a terrific narrator.

That'll possibly be because Cox has named Cosmos as one of his inspirations.

I was thinking about watching it, but I'm never around to watch it>

Cosmos was excellent.

It's on Wednesdays at 10 PM. I won't get to see it this week, since I don't have the science channel at the weird hotel my dad and I are staying at.
Another Cosmos similarity, there's also a book to go with it
And, what a badass. On the first episode, used as a comparison for super nova, he exploded a building!

I'll have a watch when I can get hold of some better bandwidth, doing it right now would be nearly impossible.

Semi Relevant Update: The Brian Cox effect is a star turn - Telegraph
(Tacking it on rather than making another thread )

It wasn’t quite my usual audience: there was the noisy man dressed as a sheep, adults with painted faces, tattoos and masks, plus an assortment of top hats, floral shirts, sandals and other hippy trappings. In fact, the only people wearing jackets were myself and Rory Sutherland, the irrepressible advertising guru and my partner for the debate.
We were at last month’s Wilderness Festival in deepest Oxfordshire, opposing the motion that “new technology is creating more serious problems than it solves”. Despite the disadvantage of our being overweight, middle-aged, and stereotypical tools of the Establishment, the festival-goers warmed to our technophilic arguments, and we won the debate. And our victory was part, dare I say it, of a general thawing in the usual cool reception given to science, one that has seen all things geeky become – well, trendy.
This summer, New Scientist sent reporters to the Green Man Festival in Wales, Secret Garden Party in Cambridgeshire and Latitude in Suffolk, among other festivals – and found that the punters do welcome a little intellectual fibre with their wholefoods, meditation and music. There has even been a boom – long overdue – in the numbers studying maths and sciences at A-level.
Many commentators have put this down to the “Brian Cox effect”, a reference to the boyish charms of the Wonders of the Universe (BBC Two) presenter. There’s probably something in that. I can’t think of any other professor of physics (Cox is a Royal Society university research fellow and has a chair at the University of Manchester) who routinely appears on talk shows. A former member of D:Ream, the band that gave the world Things Can Only Get Better, Cox is now a household name, to the extent that he has to think twice before taking a stroll in a public place.
