Cosmos with Neil deGrasse Tyson is the best science show ever – especially for stoners!
A few weeks ago Seth Macfarlane (of Family Guy fame) was on Bill Maher. And one of the first things Seth told Bill was that he thought Bill should “watch Cosmos stoned!”
And Seth is right. While the show is brimming with the scientific facts that made the original with Carl Sagan so impressive, the visuals are absolutely off the chain. Tyson visits other planets, other solar systems, the oceans, and even contemporary and prehistoric earth in an awesome space ship. There is a hall of extinction that is somber and wonderful (and incomplete, as species are still becoming extinct).
And of course, there is that friendly and calm Tyson voice.
You and your kids should be watching Cosmos. Monday nights, 9pm, History Channel.
A couple of weeks ago someone uploaded a slowed-down video of Neil deGrasse Tyson narrating Cosmos. He sounds so stoned, and it is really funny. Here is Tyson himself showing that very video:
