i've been watching the original series all weekend on PBS. tonight the epic return featuring Neil DeGrasse Tyson, on Fox and NatGeo! yes, SCIENCE bitches!! set your DVR's!!
Ooooo, good point, since Cosmos is up against the season finale of True Detective. Will take care of that RIGHT NOW!
same here Loren. i'll be watching True Detective at a friends house, Cosmos will have to wait an hour :)
The NEW Cosmos is NOT on PBS. It's on Fox, National Geographic, and FXX, that I know of. True Detective is on HBO at 9 PM EDT, same as Cosmos.
thanks for pointing that out Loren. i'll update the post for accuracy.
I saw it. I dvr Colbert, he's must see tv, IMO.
I just checked, too. It looks like just about every Fox channel (FX, and FX Sports, too) is carrying it as well. Clearly, they want ATTENTION.
I hope a considerate Atheist records the program and uploads it to Atheist Nexus for the benefit of members who do not reside within the United States of America.
Nappy, something this big, I have to believe that some European network either has picked it up or is going to. I'm sure you're already scanning the internet for such venues, and I wish you luck!
Napoleon, you may be in luck. According to this article it will be showing in Europe as well. I hope it works out for you.
Obama has recorded a special video introduction to the series, which bows Sunday at 9 p.m. on Fox and nine other Fox Networks Group outlets. The 13-episode skein will also air nearly simultaneously on dozens of Fox and National Geographic TV-branded channels across Europe, Latin America, Asia and Australia.
The original Cosmos aired in 1980, which was WAY before my time, but I am curious about this updated series. So, I'll be sure to check it out at 9:00, after I finish watching the Spring premiere of Once Upon a Time, that is.
Good stuff ... acknowledgement of Carl and his pioneering work. Basic layout of the playing field, both in space and time, to give the viewer an idea of the scope of what this program is dealing with. A bit of history with Giordano Bruno, too, which I liked.
Now ... where does Neil take it from here? [grin!]
