How The Universe Works (TV)

I've found this series, and subject, absolutely fascinating - season 1 at least. I found it on the Science channel, but (some episodes?) it's on YouTube and other sources too. I have to pause a lot to let it sink in, and even then some of it is beyond my peanut brain. Singularity, stars, the Big Bang, universe, gravity, galaxies, black holes, wormholes, dark matter, non linear time, etc.

Yes , it's an excellent series that has been around for a few year, Mike Rowe (dirty jobs fame) narrates some of the series. The scientist they use do a good job explaining some very complex theories and ideas.
