Bill Nye is still a cool guy
20 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure what the previous reviewer was on, but Bill Nye is still my science guy. His new show is definitely not aimed at children anymore, with topics like "Addiction", "Genetically Modified Foods", and "The Evolution of Sex" with its montage of happily fornicating animals. This is now an adult show. The topics are more serious and the ever-present humor is darker in places (see the '50s school segments).

The science is still there, though. Even topics that I'm normally not interested in like "Sports" and seemingly boring ones like "Antibiotics" are suddenly intriguing when injected with Nye's Sagan-esquire magic. Scientific theory is laid out so everyone can understand it and issues are presented even-handedly, though generally with a welcome lean toward the environment.

I like the survey segments, where Bill takes to the streets and asks people what they think about the current episode's topic. I don't remember if they were in "Bill Nye the Science Guy", but they're nice to see where regular Joes and Janes are on different issues.

Pat Cashman fans rejoice: our favorite radio personality is back in regular segments as an announcer type character.

All in all I'm glad Bill Nye is back. It's a different show from the one I watched as a kid, but we've all grown up since then - and Bill has grown with us.

8/10
