heres my review: its about time!
Thank you Bill!
Watching Bill Nye while I was growing up sparked a passion inside of me that continues to grow everyday. I have an incurable need for science and learning, and I believe that Bill was one of the fundemental forces that inspired this in myself, and many others. Thank you Bill, for giving the kids of my generation, as well as many generations to come, a reason to better ourselves, others and the planet as a whole!

This is my son's (4 years old) favorite show. We had been checking these programs out every time we go to the library. One time, we broke a disk and had to replace it. The cost for the disk (with 1 episode) cost more than this entire set of 17. This is well worth the cost and super educational for kids through middle school age.
