I can't wait to watch this.

I really need to rewatch the old Carl Sagan series. I haven't seen it since I was a kid. It's on DVD, right?
Yes, and it's still marvellous.
Agreed. I still watch the series once a year. Uplifting stuff.

Cool trailer, great visuals. But, as much as I like Neil deGrasse Tyson, he ain't no Carl Sagan. He's got a big pair of shoes to fill here.
Oh i think deGrasse Tyson can fill anyone's shoes. He has that unique talent of presenting hard science facts so everybody can understand them and he does so in a very entertaining way.

He's got a great sense of humor and you can practically feel his love of science and the passion he has.

I'd really like to meet him and talk science.. that would be a day and i'll definitely check out this show.
I completely agree about Tyson. If anything, this interview (below) he did with Stephen Colbert convinced me. That, and his StarTalk Radio series.

As for FOX - I have no doubts that Seth McFarlane, along with Tyson and Ann Druyan (who helped write the original Cosmos series) will create a show worthy of Sagan's legacy.
