Bill Nye Saves the World: Season 1 (2017)

SEASON:

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Bill Nye doesn't miss a beat as he returns to reeling off ebullient explainers of science and proselytize the importance of data and facts, although the more adult programming of this new series sometimes chafes against his youth-oriented teaching style.

Nye at his most invested and full of energy is infectious, and that usually happens when he's trying to relay information in layman's terms. He is in his element.

The show works so well because it relies so strongly upon scientific and provable facts. Bill Nye Saves the World... is fun to watch. That's not a fact - but it's my opinion.

If you want '90s nostalgia that doesn't make your brain hurt, watch Fuller House instead.

Will this Netflix show save the world? Probably not. But Bill Nye Saves the World will help people understand complex scientific issues without hyperbole or political bias.

The bottom line? If you love Bill Nye in every form and can overlook his uneasiness in this new role, then this series will make you think about issues you may or may not have contemplated before.

At its best, this approach is enlightening and empowering, rather than alienating. And Nye's skepticism is undeniably at its best in an early episode addressing vaccinations.

While the format is geared to adults, the content is too simple to be of interest to them. For kids who might try to watch, all the talking heads will be a bore.

Sadly, Nye's crucial first episode about vaccines and misguided fears about vaccination seems woefully misjudged.

If it's not quite a rescue mission, Nye appears to have taken to heart the concept of trying to provide a small beacon of light rather than just cursing the darkness.

Despite an entertaining return by the famous scientist, Bill Nye Saves the World only offers a surface-level investigation into some of the biggest issues our world faces today.
