I was glued to the TV for every Cosmos episode. Not to insult DeGrass Tyson, who is wonderful as well, but Sagan's Cosmos brought goosebumps. I have goosebumps typing this. Thanks.

It's hard to believe that show was on so long ago.
I believe Carl Sagan made science interesting for an entire generation of kids, my son included.
Heck the adults were all watching too, he made it so fascinating.

I would call Cosmos the first "infotainment" show, it started a new genre.
