    I have been waiting and waiting for this show to launch on Netflix, and I've binged half of it already. Bill has a bunch of celebrity correspondents, guests and other scientists that debate, etc. I am totally loving it. My inner nerd is very pleased.

    Anyone else watching Bill Nye's new show?!

    I've gotta admit, I just checked out the "This Diet is Bananas" episode, but I'm not impressed.

    It's more like a poorly done sketch comedy show than a science show. It's awkward, stilted, and Karlee Kloss does a god-awful and basic job of hosting her segment.

    There was an off-color bulimia joke at the end which was supposed to garner a laugh and hit a nerve with me as well, and I'm not usually offended by things.

    4/10. The novelty of the idea of the show, for nostalgia's sake, is better than the show itself.

    I agree about the Food one, I had such high hopes for it, especially since I loved the vaccine and sexuality ones. Also, Karlie Kloss in general annoys me, so there's that. I still have to say I love Bill Nye though. He's ridiculous.

    I watched the first episode and already agree with you about the poorly done comic show vibe. It seems like Netflix blatantly capitalizing on cultural nostalgia with a low-effort reboot.

    Oh Jesus, what was the bulimia "joke"? Do I want to know...
