Today is a fine day for science—or for the science-loving nostalgics in all of us.
While most people tuned into Game of Thrones and the Mad Men series finale Sunday night, some started to discover that Bill Nye the Science Guy, the beloved ’90s educational program from our favorite bow-tied scientist Bill Nye, had arrived on Netflix.

He is a good introduction to basic science concepts.”
Regardless of how old the episodes may be, we’re positive of one thing:
