    COSMOS: A SpaceTime odyssey (FOX Premiers Sun March 9/NatGeo Premiers Mon March 10)

    COSMOS: A Spacetime odyssey

    Hosted by astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson, this show is being billed as 14 billion years in 13 episodes. I hope it follows in the footsteps of the series Cosmos, A Personal Voyage created by Carl Sagan for PBS in 1980. Here is the wiki-link if you want to discover that show Cosmos: A Personal Voyage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia According to wiki, the FOX/Nat Geo presentation is a follow-up to the original Cosmos with Sagan.

    Personal Note: I loved the Carl Sagan series and am really looking forward to this one. FOX - really?

    We will be taping this one. My son (14) is really interested in it.

    I, too, loved the Carl Sagan series. I hope only that Fox can manage to live up to the quality a show like this deserves. I always have my doubts when it comes to FOX.

    Well it looks like they are co-producing with National Geographic, plus they have the new go-to astrophysicist as narrator. I think it will be more than all right. I just couldn't believe FOX is involved.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson I'll definitely be tuning in.

    By the way, another FABULOUS series is the Science Channel's "Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman." They are up to season 4 or 5 by now, but they are rerunning the episodes frequently, and they are definitely worth watching, if you're interested in hearing the very latest theories and science about the cosmos.
