No, if they remade it today it would be “Fonzie Loves Chachi”

Sad thing is that Winkler could pull that off if he had to.

9 love this sort of thing but I won’t be watching this one. ... These assholes need to understand that they drive many way simply because they insult Christians for no good reason.

When I went to the space.com link I saw that Seth McFarland, creator of "Family Guy", was listed as the executive producer. McFarland is a militant atheist, a strident advocate for homosexual civil rights, a blatant bigot of southern Americans, and a vicious foe of the Republican Party. I was looking forward to this re-boot, but not now.

Most here on FR recall that Carl Sagan was an ethnic Jew and atheist. I truly enjoyed Cosmos(1980), and I think a lot of it had to do with them utilizing the new age music of Vangelis. About 3 years later, Sagan was pushing his advocacy of nuclear disarmament when the the film, "The Day After" was broadcast on TV. I think his key quote was: "The U.S. and U.S.S.R. are standing in a lake of gasoline ready to flick their cigarette lighters" or something close to that effect. Lost interest in him after that.

I just saw a commercial for this and I noticed they did not mention Dear Leader would be introducing it which I suspect was purposeful.
I wish this nut bag would just go away.

Actually, Vin Diesel is probably about the only one in Hollyweird who'd have big enough ballage to fill Telly's fedora. Same acting range, same screen presence.......OK, I actually could see that. Now, who could we get to play Stavros?

Politics and science together. What could go wrong?

And some say science isn’t political.

Too bad. I wanted to watch it. I want nothing to do with anything that he’s connected with.

So I guess I won’t watch this. I am sick of Obama’s always having their faces on TV.

Obama has made a joke out of NASA and abandoned the space program, so I think this is repulsive that he will be the face of this.

Maybe some Muslim outreach will be embedded in this series. Ugh

Many of these comments are not giving him RSPECT!

...and for that very reason; those comments have been sent to the 'Twilight Zone'.

There was an atheist retard on Twitter thanking Obama for putting Cosmos on TV.

I was going to watch last night but it slipped my mind. Now I’m glad I didn’t. I like my television just the way it is, in its present unbroken state.
