Series cast summary:
 Himself - Host / ... (100 episodes, 1993-1998)


It's "Mr. Wizard" for a different decade. Bill Nye is the Science Guy, a host who's hooked on experimenting and explaining. Picking one topic per show (like the human heart or electricity), Nye gets creative with teaching kids and adults alike the nuances of science. Written by Jwelch5742

Terrific Show for Kids and Adults
20 June 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bill Nye is an established scientist and comedian from Almost Live with fellow announcer Pat Cashman. His show is very enjoyable, informative, and entertaining. I wish it was around when I was a kid. I learn more from him than any science teacher in my life. He has one topic on his show and he sells it easily like the forest. He can produce a music video to help sell the forest and he even used a supermarket type idea for kids. Even adults with college education without children can enjoy it. I love his outdoors in Seattle and guest stars. It's too bad the show is no longer being produced. He has a new show filmed of course in his beloved Seattle, Washington. Bill Nye is truly one of a kind. He is today's answer to Mr. Wizard. His show should still be repeated on public stations for adults and children audiences. He provides entertainment as well as education.
