"Almost Live!" Meets Educational TV
2 December 2003 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

"Almost Live!" alumni Bill Nye produced a great educational show that was entertaining to both children and adults. It had an "Almost Live!" flavor to it. Some of the experiments he conducted were the same ones he used to perform on that show; The only things that were missing were his intro music; Thomas Dolby's "She Blinded Me With Science" and having host John Keister put on the safety glasses he always referred to as "the safety glasses of science".

Bill Nye would bring in his old "Almost Live" castmates like Darrell Suto, Pat Cashman and John Keister and have them perform classic skits like "Mind Your Manners With Billy Kwan" and I believe I remember seeing him bring back some of his old characters like "Speed Walker".

The show had a northwest flavor to it as well. Most of it was filmed all around the greater Seattle area as well as various parts of the Northwest. It was refreshing to see local celebrities and athletes from the Seattle Mariners, Seahawks, Sonics and Thunderbirds hockey team.

It was worth watching.
