Science TV Series Cosmos to Reboot

in movies on (#3F8)
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.

Oh come on. Being popular is not the same thing as having a cult of personality. Granted, sometimes the fans of a person or product can spoil the product, through no fault of the product itself. I'll agree that Tyson gets perhaps a little more press than needed but, none the less, Tyson seems to simply be an outgoing science advocate, much like Bill Nye.
