Anyone who loves a bit of Netflix will know just how gripping their documentaries can be, from Don’t F**k with Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer to the recent Trainwreck: Woodstock ‘99. Well, get ready for a whole new obsession.
If you’re struggling to get your head around some of the planet’s most complicated mathematical and scientific equations (let’s be honest, they’re pretty complicated), Netflix is here to help, with A Trip to Infinity, gathering together a load of physicists and cosmologists to break down some of the most confusing problems in existence.
Releasing a trailer for the new documentary, it looks as though the intriguing new show will meddle with the mind, asking seemingly impossible questions whilst boggling your retinas with a load of cosmic imagery. If you’re looking to expand your mind after endless rewatches of The Office and Peep Show, A Trip to Infinity might just be the perfect show for you.
Netflix has a few other similar documentaries in their collection, including the Explained series, in which they lay out the basics behind some of the most intriguing earthly concepts. Exploring everything from fairy tales to country music, the show is a favourite among fans.
Netflix clearly realised that the combination of farce and music festivals was a match made in heaven following the successful release of Fyre in 2019, with their latest release, Trainwreck: Woodstock ’99 being yet another dissection of an event turned horribly wrong. Promising peace and pure ecstasy, the revival of Woodstock in 1999 resulted in rage and riots across the event space, with the new documentary breaking down what exactly went wrong.
