Liberty's Edge

Csn't believe there's no thread here at Paizo.

Tyson is doing a great job. The most recent episode, all about light, is my favorite so far.

Anyone else watching?

Very much watching, and I like it a lot! Tyson isn't as engaging as Sagan was; in the original Cosmos, you find yourself very quickly getting used to Carl's style of talking and he draws you in to the adventure.

Neil is a little more aggressive in style, but it in no way diminishes the quality of the production or how great the solid statement of science and the use of the scientific method to determine truth.

I do sort of miss Vangelis' Heaven and Hell score a bit, though. :)

Sagan had a cadence; he was almost hypnotic. Tyson's style is a kind of aural punctuated equilibrium (if you'll pardon the turn).

I still prefer Sagan's thoughtship over Tyson's. His at least made some sense. Sagan was more like Rod Stewart, he didn't dominate the scenery he presents.

That said, it's not bad, for a remake.
