I enjoyed the redo of Cosmos that started this weekend. Neil Degrasse Tyson does a good job of echoing Carl Sagan's tone without doing a Saturday Night Live impression of him. A lot of the script sounded familiar, so I think it's an update rather than a rewrite. It's also very pretty to look at. The visuals remind me of Star Trek, which isn't surprising when Brannon Braga is one of the producers. I think he was the third person to drive the Star Trek franchise after Gene Roddenberry and Rick Berman.
I've linked to a posted version on YouTube, but it doesn't look official. If it's gone, you can view it online in Canada at globaltv.com/cosmos
It also airs on Fox and National Geographic if you still roll that way.
Anybody else watching?
