Trivia

Speaking on Nerdist podcast #489, Neil deGrasse Tyson said that "[the show will be airing] on Sunday night [9 March 2014], in prime time after it had been promo'ed during the Super Bowl, Fox had the Super Bowl, after it had been promo'ed during the World Series in the bottom of the seventh inning in game 3 on Saturday night, and it is airing on 171 stations around the world in 45 languages. Any one of those sentences is a mind-blow, the fact it is all happening together is a stunning statement that there is a recognition by forces that be that science deserves to be mainstreamed."

My First review

i have been watching and loving films and TV shows for years now, and loving the study of the universe for even longer than that.

that being said, this is the first time i have ever felt the need to create an account on IMDb solely to rate something a "10"

this has an absolutely stunning, heartfelt, emotional introduction, and i only anticipate it getting better from here.

i will probably update this review as the series goes on, or i may just review episodes individually. but either way, i firmly suggest that every human being on earth watch this show.

have a good life everyone.
