Bill Nye rose to popularity for premiering science videos. He USED to be cool. Notice how I said, “used to be.” Did you see the video posted above? Cringe AF. He’s being too extra. Don’t try so hard to-be-cool, ol’ Billy boy.
Last year, Bill Nye premiered a Netflix original show called Bill Nye Save’s The World. Bill talked about “controversial” political issues and how science can solve/explain these issues. Except, well, the Bill Nye show came off condescending and lacked serious credibility. Half the people on his show were brainless celebrities with the mental capacity of a field mouse and Bill Nye would yell at his audience. But the show must have done well enough, because it’s coming back for another season.
The streaming platform has released an official teaser for Bill Nye Saves the World’s second season, which the science educator has posted on Facebook.
Unfortunately, Netflix won’t be announcing its launch date until later this year. That means we still don’t know whether the show will retain the first season’s format and whether it will use all the criticisms it received to deliver a better second season. If you’ll recall, the show was criticized for not delving deep enough into the topics it’s trying to discuss, with Nye frequently yelling his stance at the audience.
Hopefully Billy doesn’t try too hard to-be-cool this time.
Will you watch the series?
