Neil deGrasse Tyson’s ‘Cosmos’ Is Just Different Enough From Carl Sagan’s to Work

Did you watch? Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Cosmos” was really good. As Flavorwire points out here, its a bit different from Carl Sagan’s original “Cosmos” – and its just as mind-blowing and made me think about science and space as much as the original did.


The roof-raising finale of True Detective will justifiably dominate discussion of the weekend’s television (I’m never going to look at flowers or dolls quite the same way), but last night also saw the premiere of the new Cosmos. I loved the original series, so I approached Sunday’s premiere with as much trepidation as anything else. The idiosyncratic charms of Carl Sagan’s series — the Ship of the Imagination, the turtlenecks, the need to invent the universe before apple pie — are pretty much impossible to replicate, so was this gonna be any good? Happily, the answer — so far, at least — is “yes.”
