So, I was a little skeptical when I saw this airing on FOX. All I could think was Carl Sagan rolling over in his grave as they introduce the different teams of aliens that had to compete in this new "reality" show. But, I'm kind of glad to see this video. First, I am a big fan of the original. I never got tired of hearing, "billions and billions" and even now, I'll catch an episode on Netflix. I'm also a fan of Neil DeGrasse Tyson. It took me awhile, especially after that whole "Pluto's not a planet", but he makes learning fun. I think a great runner-up to host the show would have been Brian Cox from the Science Channel's "Wonders of Life." He just has that nice calming voice that makes you comfortable as you race across the universe.
Did you or do you watch Cosmos? Are you interested in the new version and are you happy with who they chose to host it?
