Format: Blu-ray
This reimagining of Carl Sagan's 1980's TV adaptation of his bestselling book retains some of the devices, most notably the silvery, gleaming spaceship that takes it's host, and viewers, anywhere you can imagine. New host Neil deGrasse Tyson is an excellent choice, a respected, bona fide scientist with charisma to burn and a face you can trust (I think he rates a 10 on the Cronkite index). The writers and producers let the narrative flow in the same, almost meandering way the first series did, but the transition from subject to subject has a cohesion to it that belies a carefully plotted narrative. The CGI, of course, means that visually, this new 'Cosmos' is far more free in it's ability to explore the universe: from the seemingly endless depths of Jupiter's atmosphere, to the methane lakes of Titan, from muons and gluons to quarks and electrons, from hydrogen nebula's to brown dwarfs to white giants; from binary stars, neutron stars, and supernova's to quasars and black holes... well, you get the point. Although these topics have been covered in other science-based shows, few have covered the breadth and depth of topics Cosmos does in such an appealing and accessible manner. Having a producer like Brannon Braga, who was a writer and showrunner for Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise, certainly helps when it comes to making a series about science and space interesting. And having a producer like Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy, certainly helps when it comes to... well, getting Fox to throw money at you, I guess. The money was obviously important, as every episode of this informative, and above all, entertaining look at our universe feels big, monumental.Read more ›

I only started watching Cosmos mid-season, but loved what I saw! As soon as I saw that the season was out, I jumped all over it!

Highly recommend this for any space, science and history lovers out there. This series does a great job at mixing the three together in a great way (there little cartoons are great!). I will admit, some of the episodes didn't appeal to me, but they all in some way were able to get my mind going, thinking about the Universe. Some of it was thought provoking and deep. It's great.

I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone! And Amazon got it to me in about 72 hours :) Great service!

This series is an homage to and continuation of the classic series Cosmos hosted by Dr. Carl Sagan. Much of our scientific knowledge has changed in the intervening decades, and our world's challenges have also shifted somewhat. No longer do we face the perpetual threat of nuclear annihilation, but many other issues presented in the original series still face us.

Produced by Sagan's widow and collaborator, Dr. Ann Druyan, and Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane, who was instrumental in getting the new series to air, and hosted by Sagan protege Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey wonderfully explores who we are and where we are in the universe with every bit of enthusiasm and powerful gravitas as the original.

Augmented by movie quality special effects courtesy of Star Trek alum Brannon Braga, stellar animation by Kara Willow, and awesome music scores by composer Alan Silvestri, the series conveys its concepts brilliantly in a way that is totally up-to-date and accessible by today's more visually sophisticated audiences.

Worth every penny, especially in high definition on Blu-Ray with some great special features, any fans of science, our environment, or indeed any critically thinking person should find this engaging.

Cosmos can capture the attention of anyone. Whether you enjoy science as a subject or not, you will be pulled right into this series. I mean, who doesn't want to know where and what we came from and have around us? This series tells us that and so much more. Plus it uses rich details and told in such an entertaining way you will be amazed and in awe. It helps the narrator, Neil, has a hypnotic voice. It soothes you as you listen, making you comfortable to hear more.
It was like taking a trip to the planetarium, which I love visiting the one we have here at McMaster University. For only $5 you can learn about the system we live in and beyond.
Even though space is the main topic, the show focuses on Earth too. It shows us why we are the way we are and tries to show us how it all began. That's no easy feat when even science is not quite clear on it.
I can't get enough of this series and am glad I can watch it again and again.

An excelent and easy to understand presentation of modern science's understanding of the universe. For anyone who wants to desires to learn how the universe works and how we came to be here in it, this is a good place to look. If you are religious you may want to think twice about this as it will contain content you will disagree with but I still encourage you to watch as it will provide you with a basic understanding of how modern science views the universe.

I was a big fan of the original Cosmos series from 1980. Watched the series many times. Unfortunately, the video quality of the original series even on the remastered DVD's is almost unwatchable. However this new series was excellent. Visually stunning and well produced. I recently purchased a new TV and it was a delight. I would say my only criticism would be there was too much animated segments but, still highly recommended.
