Just one this week in keeping with my new minimalist approach

October08_2012_Monday_Cosmos
Monday October 8, 2012_Cosmos_I had begun rewatching this series, off of Netflix streaming hence the red bar at the bottom of the TV screen, the week before, remembering with each next episode why it had had such a profound affect on me when I'd first seen it when it originally aired in 1980. Where necessary, episodes have been updated in 1993 to reflect the then current science. Carl Sagan's joy and passion for cosmology, history, biology etc. shines through continually. I was worried, before I started watching, that it might seem worn, outdated, no longer relevant. I needn't have worried. If anything, Mr. Sagan's ideas and beliefs are even more relevant now than ever before. 

What a joy!!!

How many parts are there in Cosmos and are they one hour long each? Maybe one day I will watch.

Each episode is one hour but there are only 13 of them. I watch one each day, during breakfast, and sadly, I have two only remaining. I realized, as the series progressed, how much of my ideas about how things should be came from him. What a lovely man! I also read his bio a long time ago so, I do realize he was also a very difficult man in many ways but still, none of that detracts from his basic beliefs which I agree with.

I think I'll rewatch it with Lauren over next summer, I think she'd enjoy it as much as I have. As would you so, I hope you do rewatch it!

If you have Netflix, you can stream it so, it's there when ever you want. There are only 13 hour-long eppies so, not a great time commitment. I really was afraid the cosmology would be dated but I have been pleasantly surprised. I hope you do watch it again!
