★★★★ review by Mitchka Saberi on Letterboxd
This was such a great portrait of a man so many of us grew up watching. What shined through ultimately was his struggle to find a way to change the world for the better, and of course, his passion for science.
★★★★ review by Byram on Letterboxd
I gotta say: I was expecting to go in and see either a)an extended, grown-up version of Bill Nye, or b)hero worship to the extreme. It had a little bit of both of those elements, but so much more. With exclusive, constant access to him, they delved into what drove him into the "Science Guy" business, but also how that has fueled him into his pursuits further. It showed warts and all some of his friend and family life, his personal life, how he grew up and how that threw him into a life of bachelorhood for the good of the planet. A fun and fascinating portrait of a beloved icon, made all the more human and, by that virtue, all the more the hero in his own way. A fun watch, an informative watch, and a great humanizing portrait in an environment where we are growing more aware of celebrities as people.

★★★★ review by Sean Kelly on Letterboxd
Bill Nye: Science Guy is ultimately a celebration of science and how we shouldn't allow deniers to dilute the undisputed facts of evolution and climate change.
