Format: DVD
After watching COSMOS for the third time, I am continously impressed by the bravery and insight of Dr. Sagan's vision for humanity. COSMOS's overarching theme is an introduction to the natural sciences for the general public. Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics are wonderfully reduced to their core concepts. Dr. Sagan may be the only person I know who manages to explain Einstein's special relativity without algebra. For those amongst the general public who wish to understand just what a four dimensioned universe is, there is no better series today than COSMOS. Dr. Sagan stays true to his populist belief that science belongs not only to the scientists, but to all humanity.
However, anyone with a university degree will probably be familiar with the science Dr. Sagan speaks of. The shining jewel of COSMOS is not its scientific content, but its deeply humanistic message of hope. We have all heard about the cruelty of the so called "real world" and "human nature." But Dr. Sagan shows us that human bravery and intelligence has transformed our world for the better and that our world is what we make of it. In one of the most poignant moments of the entire series, Dr. Sagan describes the human longing for an explanation of the universe as an eternal part of our species. We, citizens of the 21st century, are the first generation of human beings priviledged with some of the answers to the questions that have fascinated our ancestors.
Dr. Sagan also outlines the philosophy and history of science. This is especially essential to today's society in which science has become increasing gadgety.

XXXXX

This landmark series narrated and co-written by astronomer, astrophysicist, professor, and author Dr. Carl Edward Sagan (Nov. 1934 to Dec. 1996) is the most watched series in public television history.

Sagan takes us on "a personal voyage" through the cosmos (from the Greek meaning universe, harmony) in his "ship of the imagination."

To me, this series is and was so popular for many reasons. One reason is the diversified scientific information (especially historical information) it presents. Along with this you have Sagan's narration with his deep, articulate, punctuating voice. As well, the background music (classical, electronic, and even some "Pink Floyd") is superb and all images (with some new footage) are mesmerizing.

There are many things Sagan says that makes you think. For example, the words that title this review are the first words Sagan utters. Other personal favorite quotations include:

(1) "The suppression of uncomfortable ideas may be common in religion and politics but it is not the path to knowledge. And there's no place for it in the endeavor of science."
(2) "If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe."
(3) "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."
(4) "The Earth and every living thing are made of star stuff."
(5) "You have to know the past to understand the present."

There is no need to update this series. However, brief updates are provided for many episodes. Sagan narrates these updates that were recorded a decade after the original broadcast.

To get an idea of the wide-range of topics covered, I will give the names of the chapters or scenes of each episode.

This is prehaps the most inspiring documentary about the earth and our place within the universe. I have seen the series about a dozen times and its just as interesting each and every time. This would be great material for children learning about the world around them..

My first exposure to this brilliant TV series was when I was still at school; and all I knew of Carl Sagan then was he was an astronomer. I was interested in Cosmos because I am a fan of Science Fiction, thus I wanted to see what sort of show Cosmos was. Well...I was very surprised, it wasn't a science fiction show as such, but a science-fact-documentary-type program of self-discovery through Dr. Carl Sagan's perspective-A Personal Voyage.

This personal voyage also imprinted on me as I watched Cosmos week after week, As I too was interested in the Stars of the Heavens. Later I would read several books authored by Dr. Carl Sagan, to try to get to know him better, I am also into science fiction so reading `Contact' by Carl was a must. Sadly I didn't finish the book because I felt it was too boring, thus I felt Carl was not a very good sci-fi writer. (naturally some of you may think I'm wrong)

Anyway, back to business. Watching Cosmos again was a real thrill for me as it took me back all those years, even so, this TV Series back then and even now has no equal. If religion has the Dalai Lama, then science has Carl Sagan, he presented Cosmos in a way that you can understand it, and after each episode, you would walk away feeling you knew something that you didn't know before. The series is just as fresh now as when it first appeared back in 1980.

History Lesson 1: Cosmos: A Personal Voyage.

Now a bit about the show.

This thirteen-part television series was written by Dr. Carl Sagan, Ann Druyan, and Steven Soter, with Carl Sagan as the show's presenter. It covered a wide range of scientific subjects including the origin of life and a perspective of our place in the universe.
