I have to admit--Bill Nye was cool. He was annoying, but educational and cool at the same time. The skits weren't ha-ha hilarious, but they were clever, and sometimes my geophysics teacher would (if the Nye episode dealt with the subject we were in) show an episode before we took our notes. It was too bad the show ended around my time, and what was worse: she showed Bill's sequel instead, or, as I like to call it, Executive: The Series. The skits in his sequel were one-note and wooden, unfunny and not clever in the most--added by the seeming woodenness of the Science Guy himself and the actors in the 'skit'.
Stick to the original, the one, the only Bill Nye, teacher.
