    The man (Apted) behind the excellent "7 Up" series has put a human face to science, making the seemingly abstruse both accessible and easily relatable.
  2. An inspirational documentary that treats thinkers (so often the villains of our entertainments) as heroes.
  3. Despite its ultimate lack of intellectual substance, Me and Isaac Newton is still inspiring. All seven of its subjects are fascinating, and most are extremely likable. Mr. Apted has done them all a huge favor.

    As each scientist chronicles his or her story, one is impressed by the place that unswerving motivation and determination has assumed in the work.
  5. 75
    Makes for fascinating viewing.
  6. An elegant and rather even-tempered documentary.
  7. It's a TV show and a facile one at that.
