Science Rules. BILL BILL BILL BILL !
17 August 2007 | by wzevonfanSee all my reviews

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.
