Re: the state of sf/f TV development for 2012-13

I'm looking forward to seeing a new take on Cosmos, but somehow, without Carl Sagan's humanity, I wonder how indelible the new series actually will be -- and I like what I've seen from Neil deGrasse Tyson. I hope for the best ... but fear for the worst.

Or to put it another way ... I'll definitely give the show a chance, and allow it to forge its own identity ... but merging science and history and philosophy into a compelling narrative, the way the original did, is a very tall order. As an example, Morgan Freeman's Through The Wormhole has been very good, very evocative, but it certainly isn't at the same level as Cosmos.
