Bill Nye The Science Guy
« on: March 04, 2009, 04:51:14 pm »
I watched an old episode of Bill Nye The Science Guy today on PBS. It brought back old memories of watching the show back in the 90's when it originally aired. Anyone else use to watch the show? Here is a funny example experiment from the show.

Everyone loved Bill Nye, hell, I loved Bill Nye...

Even though he was on the Disney channel.

I saw Bill Nye in person... he's good.

The best episode of his show was the one where he talks about floods.

Where do I start? I started watching the show back when I was a pre-schooler. Between watching the Magic Schoolbus and Bill Nye, I developed a love of science that's still with me today. Heck, they pretty much taught me 65% of pre-high school science. (With another 30% comming from books/the internet)

Now it's more like 40%, but still! He pretty much laid the foundation for everything I know now.

Hey, don't mock the man. He's awesome...

Plus the episode on explosions was freaking awesome.

Glad to see so many Bill Nye fans :D

@Crazen

Yeah I saw a show about alternative energy and it showed Bill Nye's house with them. It was so cool, but really expensive.

@ Darth Grievi

That's awesome.

Also anyone watch Beakman's World? It was a similar show but with a giant rat. :P

I remember that show.

Too bad, I was only able to watch a few episodes.



The Magic Schoolbus for me, mostly. I still can't get that digestive system episode out of my mind. >_>

Same thing for me.  I find it dissapointing that kids today do not have shows of the same caliber to watch.

I love how Bill Nye also took on the fake sciences, how he talked about them while oh so quietly bashing them.
