Cosmos, though, was originally Sagan's personal journey. Quite simply, no one can replace his voice in the series because they aren't Sagan. But if you're going to replace him, you'd better do so with someone who has a similar breadth and depth of knowledge, optimism in humanity, and interest in making science exploration accessible. Tyson certainly fits that description.
Agreed. I consider him Sagan's intellectual equal. Actual scientists instead of mere figureheads. They didn't just jump into it in finding a host, but waited until Tyson was available. Sagan was considered a Science Communicator, and that's exactly what Tyson is.
