When we watch a work of fiction, we enter an understanding with its makers. We agree to suspend our disbelief, and they agree to entertain us.

Its story may touch our emotions deeply, but we know it’s the product of imagination and artistry. It’s not bound by facts. Cosmos: Possible Worlds delivers everything a great science fiction movie delivers, except the fiction.
