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."

Absolutely cannot wait until the next episode.
11 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

This was so much fun--and it is so amazing that Carl Sagan's wife, Seth McFarlane, and Tyson Degrasse from NOVA are all together on this! I love the idea of using animation to portray ancient people--it completely avoids the campy feel of actors in strange beards and so-so backgrounds. Genius, Family Guy guy. I love the perspective it gives you, by really squishing enormous concepts into feasible bits of knowledge. It's not so you'll impress your friends--its so that you watch, and understand why you are so amazed by the universe. The computer animation of some of one of the first creatures to walk on land looks pretty darn tootin' real, as well--something that I loved. No strange feelings that their feet were hovering above the sand as they were animated--this is high quality. Additionally, Tyson seems more personable, even more likable, and definitely watchable because of his knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject. This is worth the watch, a wonderful surprise, and I am super excited for episode two. It's getting me to the gym to watch it on the treadmill. :)
