Fox to revamp acclaimed science series ‘Cosmos’ with Neil deGrasse Tyson.

The Cosmos refresh, officially titled Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey, is being produced by self-professed nerd Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy. And the 13-episode series will be written by Ann Druyam [sic], Carl Sagan’s widow and a writer/producer on the original series, along with astrophysicist Steven Soter.

Now I'm going to have to watch the whole of Cosmos all over again!

I'm tempted as well. "The Shores of the Cosmic Ocean" is a fabulous first episode, very compelling.

I have the slightly updated version of the series, with little bits at the beginning that detail new information not available in 1980.

I got my copy through more (*ahem*) "unorthodox" means.

I found Sagan's drawl a bit irritating, especially when he was saying "trillllionnnnns and trillllllionnnns"

True story:

When Apple were developing an early Mac variant in 1994, they gave the project the codename 'Carl Sagan' in his honour. Not a brand name, just a codename for use within the organisation.

Most people would be flattered by that.

Sagan, shy and retiring chap that he was, sent a cease and desist letter to Apple.

Apple said "OK, we've changed the name to Project BHA".

Sagan was happy.

Until he found out tha BHA stood for "Butt-Head Astronomer".

Sagan sued Apple for libel.

Sagan lost.

:lol:

Nobody's perfect I guess.
