not good series so much details on other people rather than Einstein's hismself and his thoughts
17 May 2017 | by (ht006618j) – See all my reviews

I watched the series. It is totally wrong!!! they spent long times on relation of Einstein mistress and quarrel with his mom rather than 1905 what was his thoughts and how he reach to his ideas very poorly address. Like he was just searching for ideas to get a job in patent office no reason why these ideas coming. very poor in explaining why he went to labs and universities university how was there and he got PhD how? details of explorations? Max Plank sir have you red Einstein's paper this is not they way physicists get to know things they know already connections are everywhere particularly at Max Planck level. you don't need somebody chasing you!!! you need to explain planks thoughts on Einstein's works? how was physics at those days? what universities believing not showing shooting of young guy on his mom. The spent long time on crazy guy suicide but no even a minutes on Pierre Curie and Marie Skłodowska Curie how they relate to each other why? how they live how the start the research and many important issues. How was the society at those days? and .... and explorations and many details are just missing. Only the thought experiments are interesting but very poor series.

Hope to stop and revise further series because is awful!
