Cosmos is by far the most amazing show on television at the moment. Sure, there are great series’ on the Science Channel, but Cosmos is incomparable in it’s ability to captivate an audience of both average Americans and science fanatics alike.
The show has become an overnight success and there is no wonder why. With it’s spectacular visuals, interesting stories, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s outstanding ability to engross and inspire you as Cosmos takes you on a journey through space, time, and the world around you. It is guaranteed to blow your mind about 3 times per episode.
Each episode is different from the last, yet equally as entertaining and amazing. It teaches you about all realms of science. So far the series has taught us about light (who knew light could be so interesting?), atoms, the life inside of a dew drop, and how one man, in his quest to find the age of the earth, uncovered a massive public health crisis.
Cosmos makes learning fun. Neil DeGrasse Tyson makes an outstanding host. He has a wonderful ability to describe things in a way that almost anybody can understand, while also making it feel as though he is only talking to you. The show changes the way you look at the world around you. Makes you eager to learn more. In my opinion, and probably of many people who have watched the show, is that Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey should be a part of the curriculum in every high school science class. THAT is how good this show is.
