Drinking game? Really?
 
2014-03-30 07:37:19 PM  
This goddamn Eastern/Pacific time thing is really pissing me off!

Is there a streaming link for this, because I don't get to watch this until 8:00 Arizona Time.

What kills me is the fact that Cosmos was not really controversial in the 80s. It was laid out as scientific fact as much as we could comprehend. Now, the new-Earth creationist nutjobs who are trying to inject themselves into politics and education, have turned what should be accepted as fact into a controversy. I have no problem calling them out for being dumb, unreasonable, and detestable. They need to be taken to the woodshed and beaten, and I'm actually glad that NdGT and Seth MacFarlane have gone out of their way to call these people to repentance, so to speak.

Whoo, this is the only show I actually tune in for right now.

/...until Game of Thrones comes back on
 
2014-03-30 08:59:46 PM  
Time for SCIENCE!!!
 
2014-03-30 09:00:20 PM  
WOOP WOOP!
 
2014-03-30 09:00:21 PM  
I'm in. Millions.


I drank
 
2014-03-30 09:00:22 PM  
I missed last week's episode and haven't had a chance to watch it yet because it was grades-due week at school, but looking forward to this one. Is there a drink of choice other than "something classy"?
 
2014-03-30 09:00:35 PM  
Also.  Patrick Stewart is doing a voice over on this ep!

I haven't watched a regular weekly TV show in like 6 years. It feels weird.
 
2014-03-30 09:01:36 PM  
Ghosts?  Make it so!
 
2014-03-30 09:01:54 PM  
haha William Herschel discovered Uranus.  My anus, too.
 
2014-03-30 09:02:22 PM  
"The cosmos, AS REVEALED BY SCIENCE..."

Good stuff.
 
2014-03-30 09:02:45 PM  

geom_00: Also.  Patrick Stewart is doing a voice over on this ep!


I was not aware, but I recognized his voice immediately.
 
2014-03-30 09:02:51 PM  
If I had a kid I bet he/she would enjoy this.
 
2014-03-30 09:02:53 PM  
Patrick Stewart!
 
2014-03-30 09:03:22 PM  
Even though that's common knowledge...that was brilliantly explained.

Conway Twitty is on this episode.

I hope it works well, I'm going to watch it off my DVR later, maybe tomorrow.

Empty H: is there anyway to find the later showing?


um, I dunno, you could try. But if you give it a few hours it should be up on a "watch series" (google it) site for unscrupulous streaming.

picodenico: Even though that's common knowledge...that was brilliantly explained.


Tyson has a DAMN good way of doing that.
 
2014-03-30 09:04:53 PM  
I see these credits and I just think "What the fark is an executive producer and why are there 4 of them and then a co-executive producer?" (I think there seemed to be a bunch more on the first episode, which is why I noticed it)

picodenico: Even though that's common knowledge...that was brilliantly explained.


If this show teaches you anything, it's that scientific knowledge is never "common". If it were we wouldn't be talking about fundies or school curriculum.

I'm not sure I have it...IronTom is the steward of the list.

Jean-luc just freaked the kid out.

While I've watched all the Cosmos episodes, I haven't paid much attention to how Fark feels about them...

So, I'm curious: for those of you who remember the original series, how do you feel the reboot compares?  Positively?  Negatively?  Neutrally?
 
2014-03-30 09:06:06 PM  
NO EDGE
 
2014-03-30 09:06:09 PM  
Was that Patrick Stewart?  Just turned it on and thought American Dad was on for some reason.
 
2014-03-30 09:06:15 PM  
Nothing is real! Neil, you're freakin' me out!

/can only imagine what that monologue sounded like stoned
 
2014-03-30 09:06:58 PM  
NOTHING I KNOW IS REAL
 
2014-03-30 09:07:11 PM  

BalugaJoe: Conway Twitty is on this episode.


You mean Darth Twitty?

I prefer Carl's version, actually.

Well, it's common knowledge to MOST of us.

Love this show. Lil cheese with great graphics.
 
2014-03-30 09:08:48 PM  
I love how NdGT looks out the bottom of the spaceship on Earth.
 
2014-03-30 09:09:21 PM  
I was gonna go out and smoke dope in the garage. Now i just want to watch. Good thing i have booze!
