Re: Great Job
Add some LSD and see if you get the same effect that Wizard of Oz supposedly has. I am sure some Feynman lectures work this way.

Re: 2nd Episode
I agree on both points (which may lead you to change them lol). I am beginning to think this show is aimed at converting the anti-science crowd because of just how much pandering to religion he has done so far. Mystifying science, as you mentioned, also serves this purpose.
IMO, Sagan would be rolling in his grave. Or at least he ought to. Then again, maybe it's my utter disdain for anything religious and I don't want it anywhere near science shows. I may be a bit bigoted in that regard, but I don't care.

Organic life is nothing but a genetic mutation, an accident. Your lives are measured in years and decades. You wither and die. We are eternal, the pinnacle of evolution and existence. Before us, you are nothing. Your extinction is inevitable. We are the end of everything.

Re: Episode 4
It seems like the producers and Tyson are picking a fight.
Kinda like Sagan did in the original?
