  6. Cosmos On Weed Is the Inevitable Toker Parody You’ve Been Waiting For

    Obligatory Smoke DeGrass Tyson joke.

    Sure, Cosmos is a fantastic television program about the wonders of science and the natural world. But have you ever watched Cosmos... on weed? It's a wild ride, man. Seriously, what is even up with the universe, you guys? Totally far out.

  7. Sunday’s Episode Of Cosmos Will Feature Two Female Astronomers Everybody Should Learn About

    Spaaaaaaaaaaace

    Cosmos is a series that really gets me. From the pure scientific wonder to the top-shelf special effects, it's one of the things I look most forward to watching every week. I especially enjoy the focus on historical astronomers, and have been eagerly anticipating the inclusion of women in science. This Sunday, my wait is over. The series' eighth episode, "Sisters of the Sun," will bring us not one, but two brilliant women who changed the way we understand our universe. Judging by a preview clip (which we've got below), the episode will also touch on the obstacles faced by female scientists, particularly those working in the early 20th century.

  8. Funny Or Die Grants Creationists’ Wish For More Inclusion In Cosmos

    The creationist version of Cosmos is very short. More time to go stop science teachers from doing their job!

    Some religious groups have complained that their scientifically unprovable opinions haven't been included on science show Cosmos. Thankfully Funny Or Die has stepped in with "Creationist Cosmos" a dead-on parody that lampoons the willful ignorance of creationists as well as Cosmos' Spaceship of the Imagination style cheesiness.

  9. Sir Patrick Stewart to Appear On Cosmos, Talk About Space Ghosts [VIDEO]

    The Final Frontier

    To be technical Sir Patrick Stewart's voice will appear on this Sunday's episode of Cosmos as part of an animated segment on 19th century astronomer William Herschel. But the space ghosts thing is totally legit. No word on whether Zorak will put in an appearance. (via io9) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  10. Creationists Upset Over Exclusion From Cosmos, Do They Have A Point?

    Where was my Jesus riding a dinosaur? Where, I ask you?

    It's probably inevitable that religious conservatives would eventually take offense at Neil deGrasse Tyson's Cosmos. However, the most recent creationist complaint is just as surprising as it is contradictory.

  12. The Ratings Are in for Cosmos and They’re Amazing

    Good job, everyone!

    It was pretty clear on Sunday night that a lot of people were watching  Cosmos from all the tweets and Facebook updates about it, but according to a tweet by Seth MacFarlane the numbers are in. 12 million people watched live, and if you count DVR recordings it jumps to 17.5 million.

  13. Neil deGrasse Tyson and Ann Druyen Talk Cosmos and Gravity at SXSW [Video]

    Do we want to be around them or just be them? We can't decide.

    Not everybody gets to be at SXSW right now, and even fewer of us get to hang out with Neil deGrasse Tyson and Cosmos producer Ann Druyen. That's why we're happy we found this set of videos from the Samsung What's Trending SXSW blogger lounge, so we can live vicariously through this lucky audience.

  14. Shut Down Everything: Somebody Filmed Their Daughter Reacting to Cosmos

    she blinded me with science

    Two-and-a-half year old Delilah loves Cosmos, and she's pretty darn good at planets too. Don't worry, Delilah, in reality, the objects in the asteroid belt are really quite far apart, Neil's gonna get out of there just fine. All the better for next week's episode. Previously in Cosmos

  15. President Obama Is Introducing Cosmos Tonight, Which You’re Watching

    "We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight!" (Wrong President?)

    Cosmos is premiering tonight, and we here at Geekosystem are ridiculously excited about it. We've had the chance to screen the first episode, and it's truly incredible. But just when we thought we couldn't be any more excited about this show, we found out that President Obama was going to be adding an introduction to the series before it airs.

  16. President Obama Will Introduce Tonight’s Premiere of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey

    Spaaaaaaaaaaace

    Carl Sagan is one of my personal heroes. His writings have influenced me greatly, and his iconic series Cosmos remains an important touchstone for me. However, like the universe, our scientific knowledge has expanded, and special effects have become fancier as well. While I'll always love the old series, I'm very glad we're getting a new Cosmos for younger generations. Okay, "glad" is an understatement. I have snacks. My nebula-print t-shirt is clean. I am so ready for this. Apparently, some folks with much more sway than I have been preparing for tonight's debut as well. Folks like, say, the President of the United States.

  18. Seriously, Though, You Need to Watch Cosmos This Sunday

    You will not be disappointed.

    We'll admit, you probably expected writers from a site with "Geek" in the title to be excited about Cosmos just from the trailers. However, we also got the chance to watch the first episode already, so trust us when we say it really is going to be incredible. We don't know how else to convince you to watch, but by God, we're gonna to try.
