Like many of you here, I was looking forward to watching Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey last night.
But, also like many of you here, I was not looking forward to Obama's anticipated long-winded introduction, therefore I set my DVR to record the show, so that I could fast-forward through the intro. (some of you even declined to watch the show because of this intro)
However, when it came time to watch the show, I was pleasantly surprised, and a little bit embarrassed at my overreaction. The dreaded intro lasted less than 30 seconds!
Well, whaddaya know. Obama finally gave us a gift, sort of. Of course, a better gift would have been for him to not speak at all! :-D
I love science but have no interest in watching people who call me a Squirrel eating reactionary homophobe.
Then again, the show's producer is better known for sleazy cartoons and sitcoms than for educational programming, so who knows.
Got so bored after about 20 minutes had to switch channels. Boo-hoo, there was religious persecution in the distant past...
I was looking forward to watching this series. But now, after watching the first one, not so much.
I love science, cosmology and astronomy but it was kinda’ boring, IMO.
I was glad to see Homer Hickam speak up.
A little PC crept in: Rocket Boys author Homer Hickam annoyed by politicization in Cosmos
The big bang theory was first proposed by a Vatican astronomer.
I couldn’t click fast enough.
Wouldn’t that be gerbil?
Thanks for the link.
That pissed me off big time. How arrogant of them.
Even with the TelePrompTer his attention span doesn’t get much past 15 seconds. So I’m guessing the producer of the show had a challenge with that intro.
Just some simple manners would go a long way with these clowns. They’ve so convinced themselves that conservatives don’t have any interest in science that they feel quite comfortable slinging insults.
The Marxist introduces the show? Well chalk up another show I won’t be watching. I stopped watching Jeopardy when they devoted a whole category to Al Gore and his climate scam with the scam artist himself speaking the scam questions.
Obama should have kept his pie hole shut. He will be reaponsible for why many tune out this program.
Love the comments at your twitchy link! Heck, they are like freepers! Gives me hope that maybe over 50% of America isn’t fooled by the admin and the media.
Other than that, I rather liked the new version.
Exactly. They're not only arrogant, they're also ignorant.
