Cosmos Reboot Review

I dug up Cosmos on Hulu and just finished watching it with my younger daughter. The Bruno section was as bad as the write up in Slate advertised it to be but there was a great deal that was quite right and promoted science very well.

Tyson's promo interview describing science on Colbert was subtly wrong but he got it right in the show itself which was a relief. There were a few things that were overly speculative, the multiverse section sticking out the most for me so a bucket list of mistakes is probably worth reviewing. I hope they settle down and stick to the science.
