1. He was so great.

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.

2. I revisit this video every year on Pi Day and Earth Day.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

3. Yes Cosmos was original and riveting

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.
