I thought the point was to illustrate that conventional wisdom can be wrong and a scientist needs to be willing to challenge things that seem self-evident.

That could have happened with less bad voice work

Was the "pale blue dot" speech in the original cosmos? Because that drat well better be the exit monologue

I'm pretty sure the Pale Blue Dot speech was from the book of the same name.

But it's wrong. It didn't happen that way. Heliocentrism wasn't one of the charges brought against him.

What I saw was Bruno professing that the Universe is infinite and that the stars were other suns. Which seems to match one of the charges against him on the wikipedia page "claiming the existence of a plurality of worlds and their eternity". I don't think the anime Bruno every stated he was in favor of heliocentrism. You might have gotten that from the reference to the works of Copernicus and the British asking him if he ever read Aristotle.

That said, shut up and watch the drat show.

dunno what to tell you dude pretty much everyone everywhere considers bruno a science martyr and it was a good story to tell that is more obscure and interesting then galileo so

if you really think this show has an agenda towards discrediting the church's contributions to science during the middle ages then take it up with brannon braga i guess??

If NDT is narrating I'll watch an episode where he puts his coffee table together and just reads the instructions.

The parts that weren't insane history characterizations were really good so I'm in for more, hoping that that was just one stumble in an otherwise good product. I like the bits with Carl and all laced in, that's a good touch.
