The new "Cosmos" is now on Netflix!

The first season of 13 episodes are now on Netflix...OH HAPPY DAY!

NdT definitely makes the show his own, but he credits the great Carl Sagan quite frequently and often, quite touchingly. He makes Science fun. I've seen the first 5 episodes and all I can say is WOW!

He never directly criticizes the fundie/teabaggers, but he puts in quite a few subtle digs that they're probably too stupid and clueless to pick up on.

I can't wait for Netflix to add the second season!

I loved it, especially the graphic explanations of how things are. When he shows how many galaxies there are in the universe it kind of blew me away. It really brought home to me how small we really are in the cosmic scheme of things.

You might know this already, but Ann Druyan, Carl Sagan's wife is one of the producers of the show. I think she also did some writing for it. So Carl's point of view was well represented, lol.

I found Neil's tale of the day he spent with Carl on 1975 to be very touching.
