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."

Very true to the original
13 March 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Disclaimer: This review is based exclusively on the first episode.

First things first. Audience of the original by Carl Sagan may be disappointed by this remake. It's almost exactly the same as the original, word by word. But with cheaper production methods, brighter colors and crisper sound. Most importantly, it's without Carl Sagan and Vangelis' excellent music. Also, the stuff covered is not as amusing to the grown up audience who had the pleasure of enjoying the original. You already know this stuff.

However, the qualities Cosmos presented to us in 1980, are still the same. It's a very inspiring series well suited to kickstart a young mind into independent critical thinking, curiosity and appreciation of science. The pace and presentation have been changed to better suit todays young, and older audience may not appreciate this. The pace is however still comfortably relaxed compared to other TV material aimed towards the same audience, making me think they will have a very similar experience to the own we had all those years ago. But this series is for the young, and I'm sure it has all the qualities the original had needed when it comes to trigger their curiosity, fascination and generally change the way they see themselves and the world they live in. Personally I think Tyson does a great job walking in Sagans footsteps.

Adults with much knowledge about our world criticizing the series for being shallow and bring few new details to the original don't impress me at all. They have misunderstood the whole point of this series, which is all about creating enthusiasm for science among the younger. Not updating adult geeks on the very latest on string theory.

Adults may not learn a lot, but you will be entertained. For the younger, this has the potential to be the same amazing ride as it was for us 35 years ago.
