Not planning on watching the new one. I know Sagans wife was involved and everything, but every time I've ever watched NDT he was being smarmy prick and I don't feel like being lectured at like that, especially in the context of a series that I hold in such high regard. Sagan had an air of wonderment, Nye has genuine enthusiasm, Tyson knows the stuff and thinks you're an idiot for not knowing it too and is taking time out of his busy life to lower himself to your level to show you. He's doing it wrong.
How did you get that from the previews?
I didn't get it from previews. NDT has been around a while. The Daily Show interviews, Youtube, podcasts, etc. Maybe the Cosmos producers reel him in so he'll appeal to a broader audience, if so, good for them. I didn't care for him before the new Cosmos project was announced so I'm going to take a pass. I sincerely hope those that want to see it get as much out of it as I did the original.
