Hey. Let me tell you about this Tv show called Genius. It’s Documentary drama series by National Geographic which monitoring the life of famous people.


First season is all about Albert Einstein.

Sounds super boring right ? You can’t really expect the documentary about theoretical physicist Albert Einstein to be interesting to anyone not really into science – but that’s just not true about this documentary series.

I never before watched tv show made by National geography so I didn’t really know what to expect. I came across this show by random and I was caught by the shows description. It was in my docu series period – time from time I get this urge to learn something new in a form of documentary so I was so pleased by Genius TV show.

It’s not typical documentary where you hear a narrator talking about the topic, see few interviews and photographs of the topic. This drama documentary SHOWS life of Einstein rather than just talking about it.

I had no idea Einstein led such eventful life and I learn so much about this man in very thrilling way. It shows Einsteins life from young age to adult life and each timelines overleap over the show what adds to its uniqueness. Whole Einsteins life summed up in 10 episodes. I finished it all in just 2 days – it’s really hard to stop and I never thought Einstein would keep me on the edge of my seat.

OMG the casting – spectacular job in choosing Geoffrey Rush and Johnny Flynn as Einsteins as they were both amazing Einsteins Just look at them:

img_3402This tv show shows the brilliance of Albert Einstein as well as all of his flaws I had no knowledge of. His relationship with his first wife Mileva Marić played by Samantha Colley was so heartbreaking to watch and I felt so sorry for her. I’m not really sure how much I can say here without spoiling it – but since it’s documentary is it really spoilers?

Let me just say its romantic drama I never imagined to witness in association with theoretical physic and I highly recommend you check it out. Beyond of my expectations.

Genius show already realised their second season and it’s about life of Pablo Picasso. (!)

Thank you for your attention

  1. This is looks really interesting, it’s great to see more and more intelligent shows that don’t patronise the audience. What was your opinion on Einstein after watching it? Did it change at all? Was there any controversial topics like the invention of the atomic bomb mentioned?
