Cosmos: Astronomer Dr. Carl Sagan is host and narrator of this 13-hour series that originally aired on Public Broadcasting Stations in the United States. Dr. Sagan describes the universe in a way that appeals to a mass audience, by using Earth as a reference point, by speaking in terms intelligible to non-scientific people, by relating the exploration of space to that of the Earth by pioneers of old, and by citing such Earth legends as the Library of Alexandria as metaphors for space-related future events. Among Dr. Sagan's favorite topics are the origins of life, the search for life on Mars, the infernal composition of the atmosphere of Venus and a warning about a similar effect taking place on Earth due to global pollution and the "greenhouse effect", the lives of stars, interstellar travel and the effects of attaining the speed of light, the danger of mankind technologically self-destructing, and the search, using radio technology, for intelligent life in deep space.

Amazing documentary series!. even though made it the late 70's much of the knowledge remains the same. I give this 10/10!. On a lighter note, is it me or does Carl Sagan sound like Hugo Weaving AKA Agent Smith from the Matrix? ^^

Carl Sagan has one of the most soothing voices ever. Everyone should check out "The Blue Dot" on youtube. It makes you proud to be an "Earthling". (Though in reality we are called Terrans, look it up) lol I also agree with sundancesamurai, he does have an Agent Smith going on. I'm a big fan of Carl Sagan. I always thought it would be neat to have dinner with him, Einstein, Rosenberg, and Hawking. Not that I'm anywhere near there level of intelligence, but just because I'd love to hear what they'd actually talk about.

Would be cool if they remastered this. Graphics a bit dark and hard to see.
