I started out watching this series about Einstein, and decided to keep watching the series due to the way it was filmed and acted. We all know that Einstein smoked the pipe, but outside of his genius with math and physics, what do we really know about the man? Yes, the series is about Einstein the man and his life from youth to death. I checked to see how accurate the story is, and it seems the makers did some real research on his life. Johnny Flynn and Geoffrey Rush do a credible job of portraying the young and older Einstein. A fair amount of pipe smoking takes place too, especially with the older Einstein. Interesting show all in all.
