Finding a new series that premiered in 2014 to watch was a little difficult given the fact that I canceled my cable service on October 1st, 2013.

Nevertheless, I was able to catch an episode of Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey and was blown away. If you've followed my blog for a while you may have come across a post I wrote several months ago about a guest lecture I attended given by theoretical physicist Michio Kaku — he's a pretty big deal.

Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey is hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson who takes us through literally everything we know about the universe. What's the difference between an astrophysicist and a theoretical physicist? The fuck if I know, but apparently Yahoo Answers does. What I do know is this series is worth watching, even by the limited exposure (read: one episode) that I've had.

What You May Not Know...

Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey is actually a remake/follow up to the 1980's show Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy and American Dad, who was a huge fan of the original series, stating he believed Cosmos "[bridge] the gap between the academic community and the general public," was instrumental in providing the financing required to launch Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey.

Really you have no excuse not to watch this show since according Neil deGrasse Tyson, "[Cosmos] is airing on 171 stations around the world in 45 languages." Hopefully this series will be added to Netflix soon for all to enjoy.
