Science TV Series Cosmos to Reboot

This Sunday, a reboot of Carl Sagan's "Cosmos" will premier on Fox. PBS aired the orginal series in the 1980's.

From the article:
Based on a preview of the first of 13 episodes, "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" is certainly trippy and visually dazzling, but it's also a big-thought-provoking series crammed with scientific and historical fact.
In an age when too many TV documentaries succumb to reality-style formats, and when so many reboots of old shows are little more than ratings ploys, and when special effects obscure or replace substance, MacFarlane and his partners have kept their eyes on the value of the material. They have created something that arouses wonderment, despite the fact that it's airing in prime time, in front of mainstream viewers.

Nothing wrong with personality if it keeps people's interest. Over in the UK we have Prof. Brian Cox, one of the few people to hold a full professorship in physics at a world top 50 university and also had a number 1 pop chart hit. He gets some criticism for his presentation style, but it popularizes a subject usually unpopular with the masses, so it's hard to complain. Plus he looks cute :)
