Storyline

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.

title and intentions too ambitious
24 April 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After reading some of the "great" reviews I decided to watch some episodes...well, very disappointing. Neither the images are outstanding ( as one reviewer suggested to watch the series only in HD); nor the topics are well treated. Actually , the images looked like they used an old computer to made them. " Special" effects have nothing special about it... I gave it a 3 because the host is a nice,well-rounded, articulated guy who seems to know the subject very well. But the fact that he met Sagan in his youth ,doesn't make the series more interesting. The series doesn't "explain" much...some new info is thrown since the previous "Cosmos" , but nothing breathtaking or enlightening. Got the feeling that the info they try to explain "easily" ( aka, compress)runs short at the end of each episode. What a waste of money and time ( specially mine)!!
