Hipsters, what is the closest thing in the past decade to Cosmos?  Is there

It depends on what sort of "closest thing to cosmos" you're after. Over here in the UK, we've seen Michio Kaku's "Visions of the future" televised, and I find him an entertaining science communicator. If you're after looking at the future of the universe, the was a series made by Lord Rees, the Astronomer Royal which dwells on cosmology and also whether humanity will survive the twenty-first century.

In terms of "shows that will make you want to launch space probes to photograph the solar system and learn about geology and the formation of the earth", I'm not sure anything has come close to Cosmos.
