  • A great and quirky way for beginners to learn about various sciences

    9.0
    Hosted by the great Bill Nye (nicknamed the Science Guy for good reason) teaches/lectures about the facts, characteristics, and properties about various sciences such as chemistry, biology, zoology, astronomy, physics, and more mostly aimed at younger audiences. Although adults can watch and enjoy him as well since he's not too childlike/childish. Quite funny, offbeat, and quirky (but in a good way). This show is dated but is still a classic.

    This and Beakman's World: best science shows. I normally don't like science unless it's health. It makes science fun, humorous, and quirky.



    Various ep (98-04) VHS at school

    I've forgotten many of his segments since then, but I still remember the fun times I had watching this show. Bill Nye is a great scientist and knew how to get kids interested in science and used many comedy sketches to help teach the science lesson of the episode. If you somehow come across this show, you should watch.
  • Oh, Yeah...
