Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey (2014)
It’s been a very long time since legitimate science has been on TV. People have been watching Ancient Aliens and shit and there are kids whose parents and even teachers don’t offer them any bona-fide scientific education. Cosmos is a big deal.
Especially airing on a network whose biggest audience are otherwise science-hating bible-thumpers and willfully ignorant douchebros.
All those shitty assholes stand a chance of at least finding out what a tardigrade is and if that makes any difference in their lives it can only be a positive one
It’s not like watching Cosmos is going to make Family Guy bigger and stronger it doesn’t exactly work that way
If you’re refusing to support or even look into “Cosmos,” the kind of scientific educational programming that’s been desperately missing from America, because Seth Mcfarlane funded it and oh no, he also made a super terrible cartoon, you are kind of being completely ridiculous.
Science programming badly needs all the support it can get. Networks need to know that scientific facts and educational content can actually draw ratings and make money. It’s important as fuck.
So how come nobody talks about Kaiju Big Battel. even among all the monster nerds I follow and am followed by?
I’ve only ever really been aware of and approving of it without getting really “into” it but a traveling show set up like pro-wrestling with giant monsters, each of which has a whole silly elaborate backstory with all kinds of cute heroes, villains and relationships, seems like something that should have a bigger fandom.
Especially when it’s been going on for twenty years. It began in the 90’s.
How does something this elaborate succeed at existing that long and doesn’t even have a noticeable tumblr following
WHERE are they getting this stuff !!
How many knights set off on a quest just because they heard the local dragon “has a hoard”
How many villages do that to them on purpose
You know, I get the feeling Trubbish and Garbodor would be the equivalent of Earth's Pitbulls. Dumb people would just up and attack them for no reason at all because they're "ugly" and "evil".
I bet like rats and roaches everyone would believe they’re swimming with disease when in fact their biological processes might make them fairly sterile and safe to be around.
Of course, pokemon trainers raise things constantly on fire and the souls of dead children like it’s nothing.
