DVD-News: Cosmos – A Spacetime Odyssey

I have not written anythingabout the new incarnation of Cosmos┬áwith Neil deGrasse Tyson here, because I am technically not allowed to watch it yet from Germany. What I can carefully say is that I have been able to see a couple of episodes and it’s really great, but different than Carl Sagan’s original series from 1980. I was somewhat reluctant to announce the North American home video┬árelease coming on June 10th ┬ábecause Amazon.com had initially listed disappointingly high prices, but at the moment you can get the DVD for $24.99 and the Blu-Ray for $29.99, which is really reasonable for a 4-disc set. The release actually comes just two days after the broadcast of the final episode and according to The Digital Bits, there are some cool extras like a making-of documentary, archive material about Carl Sagan and even an audio commentary on the first episode, so these are definitively worth buying even if you have seen the series previously on television!
