This show was a godsend to students of all ages. Even in high school, we
liked nothing better in one of our science classes than for our teacher to
pop in an episode of "Bill Nye the Science Guy." The entire class, from
honor roll students to the ones who barely managed to not flunk, enjoyed
them and laughed frequently. We'd always sing along with the theme song,
and didn't feel embarrassed (well, maybe a little bit).
Bill Nye and his crew (special mention must be made of Pat Cashman as the often hilarious Announcer) made even complex science concepts seem simple and easy to understand.
Bravo, Mr. Nye, for a show well done. May it continue to run for many a year to come.
This is a great show and i hope it sticks around for a long time. It teaches kids many different things about science and uses things that they find enjoyable and fun to watch. For example, on the dinosaurs episode, they had two kids put their bare feet in paint to make footprints on paper...kids love to get their bare feet very messy! On the momentum episode, they had pies thrown at Bill's face. I don't know anyone who doesn't like getting a pie in the face! Kids like to walk around in bare feet also, and in one episode, these two guys were in their bare feet and they fell over in their chairs so you could see their bare feet. It was great. I really like how this show relates to kids. Kids love it and I hope it's around for a long time!
As a kid, I used to watch Bill Nye The Science Guy constantly, I couldn't get enough of it. I always wanted to know why things are the way they are. Why does the world behave the way it does. Another one of the stellar shows that existed in my childhood.The funniest thing is, I'm still that way today (my mother should have seen it coming). I still like to learn things, and I thank this show for sparking that in me. I never forget what to do when trapped in quicksand, why a volcano erupts, how a hurricane forms, or where they dig for fossils. This show is fun educational and spirited. If only they made more shows like this today.
"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.
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.
When I was seven, I spend most of my time watching Bill Nye the Science Guy.
He made science a lot simpler for me and I could easily understand what does
what and other things (like how far the nearest star is outside of the solar
system or how a CD works). Now that his show is now on Thursday from
midnight to two in the morning on Friday on Noggin as part of Cable in the
Classroom, I try my best to stay up long enough to set up my VCR to record
the 4 episodes shown in that time.
It had a lot of good humor (The kind that wouldn't translated well in certain countries due to grammar differences) and an equal amount of visual aids to simplify the lectures. It still rocks after all these years

From 1988 until very early 1995, my family and I used to live in the
Seattle area (yuck!!!!!). That was the setting of the very great
educational Disney/PBS program, "Bill Nye, the Science Guy!!!!!" Our
host, Bill Nye, showed us everything about experiments and science in a
cool and fun way!!!!! It always started off at the "Nye Laboratories"
door, then we go on to "The (insert many words here) of Science!!!!!"
(fanfare) And here, Nye showed us how a different science is possible.
We also learned many other great things from his lab to out in the
world!!!!! We also talk with real life "scientists," do fun experiments
in our kitchen, plus there's some funny skits that tied in with, well,
SCIENCE!!!!! After all of that, we wrap up the day's episode with a
music video, also explaining science.
I remember I was at a mall in Seattle in December, 1993, and I actually met Bill Nye at a book signing!!!!! BTW, my family still has the book today: "Bill Nye the Science Guy's Big Book of Science!!!!!," published by Addison-Wesley, in 1993.
"Bill Nye, the Science Guy" was a terrific science show and probably the most academic work the Disney company has ever made in its "Golden Age." I only wish the show were on TV today, and along with my top-class private education, made me understand the universe a whole lot better. (Try THAT with "WILL OF THE BUTCHER" or whatever that bad time traveling DCOS is, LOL) Oh, and did I mention: SCIENCE RULES!!!!!
10 stars, indeed!!!!!
During my childhood in the 1990s, "Bill Nye, the Science Guy" was one
of the many shows I watched on TVO. I enjoyed it at the time, and I
think I learned some pretty interesting things. I was also sometimes
shown episodes of the show back in grade school, and later, in the
early 2000s, I was shown episodes in my high school science classes,
some of which I could still remember from years before!
The show was hosted by Bill Nye, both a scientist and a comedian! Each episode would focus on a certain scientific subject. Bill would talk to viewers about this subject, using a lot of humour and demonstrations. The show featured many different sequences, all having something to do with the topic of the episode, including comedy clips, along with a music video for a parody of a popular song, with new lyrics to fit the subject. Guests were sometimes featured in the series as well.
When I was shown episodes of this show in high school, I found that I didn't enjoy them so much anymore. However, that's just me, I'm certainly not saying that only kids would enjoy it. I'm sure some of the other students in those science classes with me liked the episodes they were shown! For many kids, "Bill Nye, the Science Guy" was educational with its science lessons, as well entertaining with its humour! It could also do the same for certain high school students, and maybe others. In conclusion, Bill and the others behind this show deserve a lot of praise!
This show was brilliant! It worked on so many levels. It was hip and
entertaining in its own right, and very educational. I suspect if
anyone bothered to measure the retention of material learned from this
show vs traditional classroom methods, this show would blow the
classroom results away. It had decent subject depth per episode and
enough repetition to ensure the point got across, yet did not lag and
loose the viewer. I enjoyed watching with my kids very much. It was
orders of magnitude better than similar shows from the past.
The only thing better than the show was the music video at the end. They were worthy of Weird Al.
A pox on the Disney Corporation for leeching and hoarding this. You losers could not come up with this on your own if your life depended on it. Stick to your Chicken Littles, you mediocre has beens.
The Bill Nye the Science Guy dial cranks up to eleven. 11/10 MadKaugh
"Bill Nye The Science Guy" is an excellent educational show for all ages to learn about science. A comedian and scientist Bill Nye is funny in it. He is terrific in science. All you guys who like this show should catch it when it is going to be on T.V., you'll learn more about science that you have not learned before. I love it. **** out of **** stars and 10 out of 10 stars.
