I saw it last Tuesday.

The show is clearly targeted at contemporary audiences. If you grew up a fan of Science, and the original Cosmos, you already know everything being covered here. It is fast moving and absolutely amazing graphically.

The fact is, this is an absolute dream come true show for those of us who are tired of listening to science deniers. This lays down the basics of what we know to the people that just don’t know it. It is showing on Fox. On EVERY FRICKING FOX CHANNEL.

I would encourage everyone to watch it, and spread the word. Get this thing trending so Scientists are invited onto talk shows to explain it instead of a mechanical engineer/actor set opposite a clueless snitty congresswoman.

The only thing questionable about the show was when the Tyson’s ship of the imagination was flying through the asteroid belt and the Kuiper belt. It looked like Empire Strikes back. But does it matter? The people who need to see this won’t notice or care. And heck, if they do it’ll generate more free press.

One last point, I got the distinct impression Fox Execs and the creators are both holding their breath hoping this thing is so wildly successful they can make follow on series that delve deeper. I am hoping it is wildly successful and changes American culture to embrace evidence based decision making and approaches to the problems we face today. (which Ann Druyan (Sagan’s widow) explicitly said was the mission of this iteration of Cosmos)

FoxNews is having to hype the new Cosmos- and having to take actual science seriously when doing so. You know that Roger Ailes and the power structure within there cannot be happy at all about this.

For those interested, National Geographic Channel is having a marathon broadcast of the original Cosmos: A Personal Voyage hosted by Carl Sagan today and tomorrow.
