An impressive and worthy continuation of the original series, much-needed I might add,
This review is from: Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
A glorious and worthy continuation of the original series. Tyson is clear, succinct, and profoundly enlightening. He not only tells the story of the universe, but the story of how ordinary human beings figured it out through the centuries. One cannot be complete without the other. Well-written and well-organized with some of the most spectacular and accurate scientific CGI visualizations I've ever seen. We are long overdue for something like this. I sure hope this makes many understand how beautiful and fascinating and astounding our universe truly is. Paraphrasing Einstein: 'our problems cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which they were created.' I would say it's nearly impossible to begin with so many people lacking basic scientific literacy. A million times thank you to Druyan, Tyson, MacFarlane, of course Sagan, and everyone else who made this happen.
