PostNeil deGrasse Tyson to remake Carl Sagan's COSMOS
by Grumpy David » Mon Oct 03, 2011 12:55 am

Since the topic hasn't been made yet and I've recently finished watching COSMOS I thought I'd make it. Hopefully this topic gets the attention it deserves (before a massive bump in 2013 just before the first episode airs).

Sauce

Wired Magazine wrote:Cosmos, which originally ran in 1980 and was rerun many times over the following decade, is widely regarded as one of the first, and best, TV shows to make science accessible to everyone.



33 years after COSMOS first aired, Neil deGrasse Tyson will be doing a remake of Carl Sagan's fantastic series COSMOS. If you haven't already watched COSMOS, it's well worth tracking down from somewhere to rrent. Alternatively, it's £7.99 on CDwow for the DVD. If you live in the USA, you can watch it for free on Hulu.com.

It's in good hands!

Forget new games consoles, this is the best thing about 2013. 8-)

You forgot to mention that this is being produced by the immortal god-king of douchebaggery, Seth MacFarlane. I guess Fox can't make anything anymore without his slick smirky approval.





Love that Cosmos though.

I'm going to download this, just for Sagan's voice. Please don't give those awful strawberry floating songs attention they don't deserve. They're monstrosities.

I recently watched Cosmos after Prof Cox recommended it on Wonders of the Universe.

I'm really glad I did. It's stellar stuff.

Neil deGrasse Tyson has an "IAMA...AMA" going on Reddit atm: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/m ... tyson_ama/ for anyone interested.

When will Cosmos series 2 air, and will it air in the UK?

neiltyson: Thanks for asking. Spring 2012. On FOX network. Likely primetime. UK will likely follow shortly thereafter.

Under any other circumstances I'd be incredibly dubious about anyone trying to take on Sagan's mantle here. But I saw Tyson on Real Time a while back, and pretty much instantly loved the guy. I'm pretty optimistic about this.

Just to add further kudos, this is being co-produced by Sagan's widow, Ann Druyan, who was one of the writers on the original Cosmos.

This thread gave me an idea as to what to get someone as a thank you gift.

^_^ Thank you thread!

Holy gooseberry fool I forgot about him. He's already done his share of good science shows, though. Has Tyson ever done any documentaries?
Cox and Tyson should totally do something together, I don't care if it's a Cosmos remake. I'd watch them have gay sex tbh, as long as they described it as they go.

There's something about Brian Cox's face and voice that makes me not enjoy watching his series. I can't explain it. /O'Reilly :(

I like that since making this topic, the series has been confirmed for airing in 2012 and not 2013. :D


@Sputnik, he has loads of clips on Youtube but according to Wiki this is the only docu style show he's done: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NOVA_scienceNOW

He also had a small guest role in The Big Bang Theory:
