@Keith
Did Tyson actually say that "if the earth was only 6500 years old, we would be unable to see out to anything beyond 6500 light-years distant"? - I hope he actually meant that if the 'universe was only 6500 years old' :)  I caught that remark, and although I agree with the thrust of Tyson's point, I did think it was a needless dig at YEC - he just had to get in that remark.

My biggest complaint with the series thus far echoes what Randy said - impressive graphics, shallow content - is this what we can expect for the entire series - missed opportunities to elaborate on real science? Perhaps because we are professional scientists we see what is missing, so we are evaluating the series with a more critical eye than a lay audience would.
