I wouldn't be surprised if he were getting paid the beaucoup bucks to do it.I thought the show was "Bill Nye saves the world." With a title like that, I would assume that the show would talk about things such as existential risk.
With the content of the show however, I think the title should be changed to "Rapidly Aging Nerd gets really autistic about issues that nobody outside of Tumblr cares about"
Carl Sagan is the gold standard every pop-sci figure should emulate. He was incredibly smart, but he was also humble and interested in teaching. People who didn't understand or agree with him weren't obstacles. They were potential students. You would've never seen him sing a song about how buttsex is something everyone should try, or fire out a stream of tweets reminding us all how Star Wars isn't real.
Funny thing was Mr. Wizard could get visibly agitated with the kids he brought onto the show.Its because Mr. Wizard was a science educator. Bill Nye was a comedian who read a script.
Just like a real science teacher!Funny thing was Mr. Wizard could get visibly agitated with the kids he brought onto the show.
It was those little unscripted moments that made Mr. Wizard superior than Bill Nye. He wasn't afraid to tell the kids on his show they were wrong. He treated them like adults.
