Listen to it all, folks-
“Toothless, squirrel-eatin’, reactionary homophobes” [giggles]
“Here we have a couple of … atheist science types. How do these two things fit together?”
“You’re thinking of Fox News, which does all those things” [giggle giggle]
“We were initially surprised, but thought it was the next best thing to do, and Fox knew that” [knowing nods all around]
What a vast sense of entitlement and superiority these people have. How kind of them to come down from their high places a bestow upon us the benefit of their superior intellects. I cannot wait, as a toothless Southron mouth-breather, to bask in the reflected glory of their all-encompassing knowledge. Surely my life will never be the same afterwards.
Because I have no intention of watching.
I had been looking forward to this show for years. I watched the old Cosmos with Carl Sagan and could not wait for the next installment to come out. Not so with this- they have already told me they consider a vast swath of their audience to be ignorant assholes who should probably be grateful they condescended to share a bit of their inestimable glory with them.
Neil DeGrasse Tyson- fuck you and the horse you rode in on. If there is any justice in the world this show will be a massive failure and reflect poorly on you for the rest of your miserable life.
