I'm really looking forward to his hosting the reboot of Cosmos next year.  Couldn't imagine a better man for the job.  His ability to explain things in layman's terms without coming off as condescending is amazing.

dittybopper:I just re-watched Cosmos not that long ago (it was on Netflix streaming), and it holds up well.

Didn't realize that was on Netflix streaming, may have to get billions and billions of weed and rewatch it myself.  I just hope Tyson doesn't try to "be" Sagan, because he is not.  I wouldn't say one is better than the other, but he's got his own thing going and I hope he sticks to that.

RaiderFanMikeP: Can you imagine Brian Cox doing Cosmos?


Fun fact: Dr. Cox was in an 80's band

This.

If I had one "complaint" against the original series, is that it's paced kind of slowly.  I don't mind, not really, but some may.  I don't think that will be a problem with NDT, though, because his style is different.  Carl was cool but aloof.  Neil is more "science guy you'd drink a beer with".


The pacing was fine. It was similar to James Burke's "Connections" series -- the stories unfold as a novel through history and allow the audience to absorb the content.

I'm really concerned about the hyperspeed of modern TV and movies -- everything is at ADHD video game speed. There's no time to let thinks sink in and establish. No wonder our kids are plagued with ADD and medicated.

Fred Rogers purposefully paced his shows so kids could understand and regulate their responses instead of being bombarded with flashy content.

Came for Megamaid, glad to see that's the first -- uh, introductory post.

I'm looking forward to it too.  I just re-watched Cosmos not that long ago (it was on Netflix streaming), and it holds up well.
