TV show description:
This documentary series is a follow-up to Carl Sagan’s 1980 television series, Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. Executive produced by Seth MacFarlane and Ann Druyan (Sagan’s widow), this version is hosted by renowned astrophysicist Doctor Neil deGrasse Tyson.
The series follows how humans discovered the laws of nature and found coordinates in space and time. The series brings to life never-before-told stories of the quest for knowledge, transporting viewers to new worlds and across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest — and the smallest — scale.
Episode #26 — Seven Wonders of the New World
Young Carl Sagan and Neil deGrasse Tyson first discovered their passion for science at the New York World’s Fairs of the past. Visit the dazzling pavilions of the 2039 New York World’s Fair, where problems currently considered intractable may have been solved through public commitment and scientific imagination. A child’s journey comes full circle, presenting a bright future with possibilities in the finale.
First aired: April 4, 2020.
What do you think? Do you like the new Cosmos TV series? Do you think it should have been cancelled or renewed for a third season?
Please keep it coming.
Parts of this are OK. The CGI part is amazing. I could certainly do without the alarmist whining toward the end of the series however (we are destroying the earth–you know)
This was a wonderful show and people need these kind of shows!!!please bring the show back it was wonderful. Finally something worth watching on television besides all of that junk that is reality TV. The world is waking up to science and technology and they want to see this kind of thing on television.
This was a great show! Its rare today that you can find something to watch that is both entertaining and educational. Dr. DeGrasse-Tyson is a natural educator and easy to watch. Bring this show back! Haven’t we had enough of mindless reality TV?
Glad to hear that the linguistic vomit and utter scientifically illiterate nonsense that was Cosmos has come to an end. Good to officially hear that train wreck has been cancelled. Perhaps Neil can start another quote fabrication scandal in his free time.
religion is heresay
Please bring back Cosmos. It is so informative. We need that. Also, Bones, Sleepy Hollow, Gotham are all good. The Following is good yet gruesome. Last Man on Earth
has potential. I keep waiting for Cosmos to return. Is there a chance?
COSMOS is wonderful and necessary! Besides being fabulously interesting, it is important for society to be reminded of what real science is, why it is important, and what makes the information reliable!
… competition for ratings is fierce…. intellectual shows don’t make the cut nowadays….
This show is amazing. Please renew it.
I thought the new Cosmos stunk. I saw the Sagan series. Am not Bible thumper but thought new one still stunk. I believe in evolution etc.
No one cares. PS…you were right about it being awful. Glad it’s been cancelled.
Evolution not science? You wish. Face it. Evolution is fact. Not even up for debate. Stop letting your bias get in the way of your brain. Seriously.. I can already tell.. Neil degrasse Tyson is far more intelligent than yourself. Many are. You would do well to remember that.
I loved this show and hope it renews for 20 more years!!
I agree, if the Bible thumpers have their way about this we’re doomed.
PLEASE do not cancel this show. It’s one of the few things that doesn’t make me feel gross after watching it. Like I actually benefited from my time watching t.v instead of losing brain cells and feeling embarrassed to be a part of the human species. This show is top notch and It would be sad if it gets cancelled. I can see this series becoming a standard in the high school science classrooms on movie day.
Comos is a dynamic science program. It appeals to all ages: high school, college and university; and, the general population. It has great graphics and current science information. Most important, Dr. Tyson does an outstanding job delivering a complicated cosmology message to the common and unscientific minds — like me.
This programs’ presentation and quality is unsurpassed. We enjoyed the original with Dr.Sagan. We enjoy Dr. deGrasse Tysons program. Though fundamentalist Christians objected those of us with an open mind accepted this program as informative and delightful. It was also educational for children. Keep this program on television!!
I love this show. It is the best reality T.V. show ever! I mean E V E R!!!!!
I absolutely love this show! Please do NOT cancel. This show is first rate. Neil deGrasse Tyson’s storytelling is amazing, you hang on every word. The special effects and animations are like nothing else on TV. THIS SHOW SPARKS THE IMAGINATION IN ALL OF US.
