This might be hard to believe, but while I have read every book that Carl Sagan has written, I have never seen a single episode of his famous science series, Cosmos. Until last night, that is. I remember seeing some posts regarding the fact that the Cosmos series was available on Hulu, and last night, kept awake by an aching hand, I watched the first episode, which originally debuted nearly 30 years ago, in 1980. What a wonderful show! So impressed was I with the program that I decided the Hulu quality wasn’t good enough, so I hopped over to the iTunes store and purchased the entire series, using a gift certificate I received for my birthday. I can’t wait to watch the remaining episodes.
(And while I was at the iTunes store, I also picked up Season 1 of the Discovery Channel series, The Universe, which looks like an updated version of Cosmos. Can’t wait to dig into that either.)
