More than three decades after the debut of Carl Sagan's ground-breaking and iconic series, "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage," it's time once again to set sail for the stars. Host and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson sets off on the Ship of the Imagination to discover Earth's Cosmic Address and its coordinates in space and time. Viewers meet Renaissance Italy's Giordano Bruno, who had an epiphany about the infinite expanse of the universe. Then, Tyson walks across the Cosmic Calendar, on which all of time has been compressed into a year-at-a-glance calendar, from the Big Bang to the moment humans first make their appearance on the planet.

When the unexpected meets the amazing
11 March 2014 | by (Guatemala) – See all my reviews

Being a science fan (or geek) by reading, watching and hearing everything I can get my hands/eyes/ears on these days, I was a little bit anxious about what could come out of these new series of Cosmos, because everything in it could make you think it ought to be something out of this world, somehow literally! Having one of the most famous scientist and science translators (science language to bus driver language) of our time, Neil deGrasse as host, and an amazing staff supporting him (like MacFarlane who seems to be really critic about the reality we live in and a really great comedian and producer, the producer of the Original Series and ex-wife of Sagan: Ann Druyan, and the cinematographer of Matrix: Pope, among others) I wondered if it would carry too much fantasy, would it be way too historical, would it be the same stuff that you watch and hear daily on science channels and pod-casts about stars and the universe... How could they handle this? Well, somehow they did it!! And nonetheless with an amazing first episode example. They were able not only to conjugate actual science with probabilities and possible past and future scenarios (talking about space-time past/future) but (and I think these has something to do mainly with MacFarlane, Druyan and deGrasse) they also made some critics on how the religion is and has been a factor on science (bad influence mostly, obviously, but also as a motivator for those who think out of the box and want to know more no matter what). But that's not all, they were able to present something different, even about history: they focused on an historical character to guide the story, that wasn't one of the famous, that wasn't that well known and these was one of the points that made it more interesting. Why? Because most of the people know about Galileo or Copernicus, and are familiar with their stories, so this little detail was able to capture even more my attention. About the science and the photography and special effects, well there's not much to say but it can't get any better (tough somehow I hope it will and I'm most certain that it will). It is a show that needs to be watched by these new generations, no matter if they like or don't like the science side of the TV programming, it is a must! Because they will end up liking some of it if not all.
