Carl Sagan was so wonderful. I watched this when I was a kid and it really fueled my imagination. It's a shame we don't have more people like him around nowadays.
I expect a Creationist Cosmos any day.
I'm sure Fox is working on it right now...

But we do. Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a fit replacement for Sagan. He is personable and smart and occasionally very funny.

We have terrific popular science writers tackling really tough scientific topics - and and others really down to earth science matters.

I think there is more good popular science available today than there was during Sagan's time.

The flaky stuff just screams louder.

I like Tyson, but Sagan said this:
' Human history can be viewed as a slowly dawning awareness that we are members of a larger group. Initially our loyalties were to ourselves and our immediate family, next, to bands of wandering hunter-gatherers, then to tribes, small settlements, city-states, nations. We have broadened the circle of those we love. We have now organized what are modestly described as super-powers, which include groups of people from divergent ethnic and cultural backgrounds working in some sense together - surely a humanizing and character building experience. If we are to survive, our loyalties must be broadened further, to include the whole human community, the entire planet Earth. Many of those who run the nations will find this idea unpleasant. They will fear the loss of power. We will hear much about treason and disloyalty. Rich nation-states will have to share their wealth with poor ones. But the choice, as H. G. Wells once said in a different context, is clearly the universe or nothing.'


I bet Fox would have none of that....

Rammstein - Les Arenes des Nimes (Live) / aka "Völkerball" (2005)
...while writing mails, going mad on the internet and relaxing for the rest of the evening.

Wish there was a newer live concert recording other than the bootlegs and 10min SAT TV streams from Wacken.

Just watched Hitchcock's The Birds ... really enjoyed it, bad special effects and all. It has great atmosphere.

It's very interesting how bad special effects look great in 3D. The Birds does. Another was Fantastic Voyage which in 2D has that 'ghosty' matte aura around everything. Totally disappears in 3D.
I finished up Almost Human last night. It was VERY uneven. Some bored me to tears. Some reminded me of Blade Runner. We'll see where this goes. I don't see it lasting more than one more year. I'm betting good money they go to space...........

Yeah, I'm starting to see that too. Sad really.

On the otherhand.... Just got done watching a great episode of The Tomorrow People. Yes not as deep and thought provoking. But it's a nice respit from the standard fanfare
