Bill Nye: Science Guy

Bill Nye is retiring his kid show act in a bid to become more like his late professor, astronomer Carl Sagan. Sagan dreamed of launching a spacecraft that could revolutionize interplanetary exploration. Bill sets out to accomplish Sagan's mission, but he is pulled away when he is challenged by evolution and climate change contrarians to defend the scientific consensus. Can Bill show the world why science matters in a culture increasingly indifferent to evidence?

    Interesting film, bit too biased for me. Seeing how powerful film is as a persuasive medium, especially documentaries, I’d liked to have seen more respect in this aspect by explaining the contrary side.

    While I knew who Bill Nye was, I never really watched his show. This doc was a great look at his life since the show, his impact on society and his fight against science deniers. Touches on his personal life, but mainly focuses with his battles against evolution and climate change deniers

  • ★★★½ review by Dan Heaton on Letterboxd

    It's a celebration of what Bill Nye is doing, but there's also a real sadness in this documentary that I didn't expect. The idea that Nye's debates with Ken Ham actually helped fuel the spread of ignorance is a truly scary thought.
