    I never watched the Carl Sagan one from back in the day, I decided to watch this version because I'm a fan of Seth Macfarlane's work and then I heard that he was coming out with the re-make, so I watched it out of curiosity and it's so interesting! I love the way they teach the science!
  • A bit disappointing

    7.0
    The show feels like a cheap remake without the careful thinking and presentation from the original. For instance, the cosmic calendar segment is just lifted from the original without anything new except CGI. From the tacky space ship flying out of an eye (ugh) in the opening to the ugly low-cost animation, it just feels like a meh. The original was such a complete packages with music by Vangelis, beautiful meaningful cosmic scenery and great stories where we always learnt something new and interesting. The original made such an impression that even today I remember stuff like the Rosetta stone and Champollion, Sagan explaining irrational numbers using the square root of 2 and the discussion about the Drake equation. While this show so far has managed to explain trivia like dogs evolved from wolves, come on!



    Edit: two more "stars" from me. The series is uneven, but when it is good it is really good. The episode on lead poisoning was excellent and made me learn something new and think. The episode on global warming was also very good and the visualisation made the scale of the problem much more real than when you read about it and see a temperature line-chart. I also like how the series brings lesser known scientist and figures to the foreground. All in all, a pretty good series which grows on you.moreless
  • jaw-dropping visuals, humbling but empowering science

    This series is perfect for anyone. Even if you don't know much about science, it's all very well explained. And for those of you who already understand basic science and have a grasp of quantum mechanics, this series will too blow your minds. It's fantastic.
  • ONLY IN THE usa!! When a Science Programme stoops to the level of Bible Belt Mentality!

    1.0
    I looked forward to watching the updated version of cCrl Sagan's original version.

    In the interim decades, I have watched many BBC productions on the same subjects. This is a poor production, aimed directly at the bible belt mentality of limited intelligence Americans! The BBC versions are Scientific, Science based, is Secular, and in no way are trying to be a 'counter argument' to the religious fundamentalist rightwingnuts of the USA. The USA can keep their rightwingnuts - the rest the world will continue with the advancement of Humanity!

    It is really a sad state of affairs when a programme that should be aimed at the general public - does nothing but pander to counter the religious zealots who should just crawl back under the rock where they live. Also the geezer hosting this is NO 'David Tennant' when it comes to narration. For future advice, when producing such tripe - keep it in the Fantasy Land of Americana Hollywood rewrites.



    I would not recommend this to anyone I know. It has a target age group of the typical 4 year old in Europe and Asia. But I would never allow my children to watch this as it would make them ask 'why is this 'fat' man always on about this that the other - 'religion'. I am certain it sold well in places like Alabama, but in the rest of world... tuned out as the fat yank is No Carl Sagan!moreless
