I haven’t been shy about sharing my hopes for the new Cosmos series, which aired its first episode earlier this week.
Personally, I thought it was good, even though it wasn’t the series I would have chosen. Although that isn’t really the point of Cosmos, is it? You see, there’s a story being told here — a story that’s the one thing unifying us all in the Universe — a story of our shared history. And for the first time in a generation, that story is being told, in an up-to-date way, for a worldwide audience, with the potential to reach hundreds of millions of people.
Why is that important?
