Trivia

Speaking on Nerdist podcast #489, Neil deGrasse Tyson said that "[the show will be airing] on Sunday night [9 March 2014], in prime time after it had been promo'ed during the Super Bowl, Fox had the Super Bowl, after it had been promo'ed during the World Series in the bottom of the seventh inning in game 3 on Saturday night, and it is airing on 171 stations around the world in 45 languages. Any one of those sentences is a mind-blow, the fact it is all happening together is a stunning statement that there is a recognition by forces that be that science deserves to be mainstreamed."

Great show !
10 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Thank You Seth MacFarlane for having the foresight for bringing this back with your own money. Carl Sagan when I was growing up influenced me with the original Cosmos series to go into science and also gave me the love of science fiction.

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is brilliant in continuing in Mr Sagan's footsteps. The the score written by Alan Silvestri also fantastic. I will be introducing this to my young family as the love of Cosmos should be for all generations.

There is updated animation no doubt influenced by Seth's Family Guy roots but this should hold the attention of the kids as the this combined with the special effects should keep them engrossed and learn at the same time.

Look forward to more episodes and questions from kids !
