Skip to comments.'A little PC crept in': 'Rocket Boys' author Homer Hickam annoyed by politicization in 'Cosmos'

Like a lot of people, "Rocket Boys" author and former NASA engineer Homer Hickam tuned into last night's premiere of "Cosmos," a reboot of Carl Sagan's 13-part science series. Unfortunately, he wound up being disappointed. The show's rather inauspicious beginning probably didn't help:

Homer is from coal country, he knows the value of coal.
I’m guessing he’s probably eaten a squirrel or two in his life as well.
30 minutes of an anti church cartoon gave it away?
Homer wrote an excellent book, which I enjoyed very much.
I thought it was pretty bad. Hope it gets better.
I play senior softball with Homer and he's a flaming liberal jackass! Oh wait, maybe not the same Homer....
Even before I figured out what the message was, I just couldn’t believe they were using cartoons. And all the time they spent bashing the Church over executing some monk I never heard of. Usually the Church bashers go with the Galileo trial. I guess that wasn’t good enough because they didn’t execute him.
I WAS going to watch it.
Good movie too
Didn’t miss much. A rudimentary tour of where the Earth is in the universe, paying homage to Carl Sagan, an over-the-top anti-church cartoon, and a whole bunch of commercials. It was a confusing mess.
The last Cosmos ran during the last part of Carter’s run...
Wow obama is really like a re-run of carter
“Good movie too”
IMO, the book was better. But I have an artist’s active imagination. I could see the scenes in my head.
I was also, it's why I recorded it.
Time to free up an hour on the DVR...
“30 minutes of an anti church cartoon gave it away?”
Exactly - that’s the point where I turned it off.
You can state a point and place it historical context, without blasting an entire faith. These PC clowns chose purposely to smear an entire religion, as well as the wider Christian faith.
I’m waiting to see how they will work in the whole environmental/global warming/man-bad-Gaia-good angle.
Watching a good one about asteroids on the Science channel now.
Bruno’s issues extended well past his astronomy. He lived during a time of orthodoxy and espoused a pantheistic theology. The cartoonish cartoon didn’t portray the trial well at all.
It reeked — so much so I have no desire to tune it again.
Homer said the new Cosmos was NOT Prodigenous.
