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!!
Maybe older than me, for all I know. And I'm no spring chicken. First time I ever heard it, and it was funny.
Hi there - here is an interactive link on the BBC site. How Big is Space. Nice preparation for the show you guys are getting. Sadly no sign of it in South Africa yet. Cheers
Thanks for the link. BBC does good stuff too. After Episode 1 of Cosmos, I think it'll be about all over the world before long. It's too good to miss. I recorded it, watched, and hit "save."
OH duh, here's a thread about it. I posted one yesterday before seeing this one.
Glad to see it's already been enjoying plenty of lively discussion. I told my atheist-friendly-catholic-co-worker about it, and he's interested but missed it. Told him it beats the crap out of all the Jesus movies put together.
He did mention wanting to see the new series "Resurrection," about people coming back from the dead. My first reaction was, "They were never dead to begin with!! Maybe their hearts stopped for a while or whatever, but that's not death." UGH.
Anyway. If only I can get him to watch that first Cosmos episode, maybe his mind would expand a bit.
I just checked my cable TV listings, and the multichannel treatment Fox gave the premiere episode of Cosmos, is NOT, for what I can tell, being repeated with the second installment! I checked the FX, FXX, and National Geographic channels and NONE of them are carrying Cosmos, at least not today.
Much as I generally detest Fox, I do have the show set for record on my DVR and may watch it live if the day's plans permit. Still, I find this more than a bit disappointing, though not surprising, coming from any organization run by Rupert Murdoch.
It was never meant to be done for all the episodes. Nat Geo airs it on Monday.
Do you guys get any Canadian channels? We still have Cosmos on tonight at 7 & 9 pm depending which channel.
