I’m a fan of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos (who, in their right mind, isn’t?) so I’m both excited and a bit wary of the upcoming reboot of the series. On the one hand it’s physics superstar Neil deGrasse Tyson and Carl Sagan’s wife Ann Druyan (who was instrumental in the production of the original series) acting as executive producer. On the other hand it’s not Carl Sagan and not music composed by Vangelis.

That said, the recently released trailer makes it look like it’s going to be a pretty fantastic piece of television:

In case you haven never actually seen the original Cosmos, go ahead and buy it. It’s worth every single cent.
