Trivia

Speaking on Nerdist podcast #489, Neil deGrasse Tyson said that "(the show will be airing) on Sunday night (March 9, 2014), in prime time after it had been promoted during the Super Bowl, FOX had the Super Bowl, after it had been promoted during the World Series in the bottom of the seventh inning in game three on Saturday night, and it is airing on one hundred seventy-one stations around the world in forty-five 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."

A great narration into the vastness of the universe
11 March 2014 | by brighterside11See all my reviews

Absolutely blown away by Neil deGrasse Tyson's hosting of Cosmos. You can tell he enjoys telling the story of the Cosmos. What makes the Cosmos remake most exciting to me is that new theories such as the 'Multiverse' theory and new findings are inevitably making its way to the front-line of grand-audience explanations of the universe. Also, now that graphics technology is more advanced than it was years ago during the first Cosmos series, the illustrations are much more telling and mesmerizing; this helps the viewer to visually break down some complexities that Neil alludes to in some of his narrative discussion.

I can't think of anyone better to narrate this story other than Neil. It's obvious he's passionate about this show. Neil's tribute to Carl was touching in explaining how Carl inspired 'just a 17 year old kid from the Bronx' to become one of the most influential scientists of our modern generation.

I'm extremely excited for the rest of the series to evolve and use the previous Cosmos series formula as a sort of foundation to continue captivating and inspiring the audience. After viewing the first episode, it's evident that future episodes will not disappoint.
