    Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey

    Did anyone watch this after the new cartoons? It was entertaining, though it made me want to be an animator more than a scientist, some of the imagery was phenomenal. There's a definite demonizing of Catholicism (or maybe just the general attitude of 16th century thought), while at the same time illustrating a Christ-like reverence for Giordano Bruno. Neil DeGrasse Tyson is alright as the host.

    I was going to watch it, but it happened to be in the middle of the night for my time zone, so i'll see it today or tomorrow. Seems good.

    I enjoyed it, but I was definitely missing Sagan (a given) as well as the Heaven and Hell theme. That theme evokes a mass of emotion in me that sums up how I felt watching the entire Personal Voyage of Cosmos years ago. For A Spacetime Odyssey, it was a good first episode, though, and hey, Alan Silvestri.

    I'm more interested in seeing upcoming episodes. This one has a lot verbatim from the old show and I'd like to hear some more recent developments in the world discussed.

    Still pretty good though nothing will ever match Sagan' s gentle tone.

    Sagan was an excellent speaker. The way he spoke, his tone, the words he chose to use; he was a big part of what made the original show so charming. NDT's Cosmos is definitely a different beast but that doesn't make it bad. They're honestly two different shows - the original and the reboot INSPIRED by the original. You can tell that the new version was inspired by Carl and the original Cosmos but it takes its own footing and does things its own way. I loved the first episode. The animation was a little weird at first but I really got into by the end. I imagine they took some creative liberties for portraying the story but that's OK. The show is in great hands, I'm very impressed.

    Well, I suppose we could raise Sagan from death.
