One of the pitfalls of editing is to use the wrong word because it’s familiar and so, to us, it looks right. This one leaped out at me right away.
So I checked the details….
What’s wrong with that description?
For the answer, see below the fold.
Carl Sagan’s work was called “Cosmos.” The documentary series originated from a book of the same name. A science geek would likely know that. Someone familiar with Sagan made the choice, but someone unfamiliar typed it.
The science-film series is Cosmic but the work being screened is the Cosmos documentaries. Whoever typed the description chose the familiar name, perhaps prompted by a spell-checker.
These are not typographical errors but brain and memory mix-ups that lead to content being transcribed incorrectly. A friend calls them thinkos, a good, quick way of referring to this kind of error.
