President Obama Tapes Intro for 'Cosmos' Reboot


by Christian Toto 9 Mar 2014, 4:08 PM PDT

President Barack Obama is inserting himself into yet another television program, this time the reboot of a classic science series.

Obama will introduce the first episode of Cosmos at 9 p.m. EST tonight on Fox as well as other Fox-owned channels--FX, FXX, National Geographic Channel, Fox Sports 1, FMX, Fox Sports 2, Nat Geo Wil, Nat Geo Mundo and Fox Life.

Quote
    In the video message, Obama invites a new generation to embrace the spirit of discovery and inspires viewers to explore new frontiers and imagine limitless possibilities for the future.

    The 13-episode Cosmos, produced by Cosmos Studios and Fuzzy Door Productions, tells the story of how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. Ann Druyan, Seth MacFarlane, Cosmos Studios president Mitchell Cannold and Brannon Braga are executive producers, with Jason Clark co-executive producing.

Obama, along with many in the Democratic party, maintain they embrace science unlike their GOP rivals. Yet Obama's position toward the country's space program has drawn some heavy criticism from space experts, and his most recent attempt to blame bad weather on global warming was contradicted by one of the administration's most vocal supporters. The president's penchant for using "climate change" arguments to support his policies often comes out as more pragmatic politics than actual science.

We had a TV in the barracks. That theme started playing and everyone shut up, sat down and paid attention.

I am looking forward to this new series.

"A deficit is what you've got when you haven't got as much as if you just had nothing. If we tried any of this, we'd end up in jail, but the government gets rid of its debts by nationalizing them. That's like the alcoholic who solved his problem by pouring the booze in all of his bottles into one big container. Himself." (Charlie Farquharson, edited for spelling)

Into what won't these two whopping egos - Barry and Mooch - interject themselves?   :shrug: They are the supreme beings over all media.

The original series (expanded) from 2000 is available on DVD. Worth getting.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson or Dr. Ed Stone is much better than Obama to introduce the series. Sagan was a athist leftist himself. I met him and Dr. Ed Stone in 1986 when the Voyager 2 probe entered the rings or Uranus. They were not sure how the outcome would be.

Ed Stone is much more qualified because he heads the JPL Voyager Interstellar Project. Bill Nye who is President of the Planetary Society would also be another good choice to being the reboot of the series.Its amazing that our smartphones are much more powerful than the entire computer system of Voyager and the Pioneer series.

Yeah, his devotion to the "spirit of discovery" - especially in the context of scientific inquiry - is just a smidge suspect.

I watched it last night and completely missed the O intro (unless it is a future episode). Cosmos itself was very good.

Netflix recently removed cosmos the original series from it's lineup available for streaming. Luckily, I watched each episode before they made that change. The series has always been a joy to watch.
