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 change interplanetary exploration. Bill sets out to accomplish Sagan's space 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?

I didn't know what to expect from the film going in, but I thought it was a learning experience ultimately. I learned about some of the things that drive Bill Nye that I didn't know. Why does he continue to talk to rabid opponents of science? How does he examine the evidence? Revealing personal and professional details that are sometimes unflattering helped to give this film s bit of self-awareness that's not always present in follow-this-famous-figure films. Some things are left unanswered--is Nye's the right strategy for dealing with some raucous topics in science? What will his legacy ultimately be? I think it's worthwhile to see the stories of folks on the front line of science battles as we think about how we want to make decisions on education, health, and environmental issues going forward. It's not easy to stand there, but I'm glad some have the courage to take it on. And seeing them as regular people may be helpful.
Agenda-driven show. Any scientist that says science is determined by consensus isn't a scientist. Science is determined by facts. Any scientist that says "The science is in, the discussion is over" isn't a scientist. A scientist abides by the "Scientific Method". By definition, any hypothesis continues to modify, due to further observation, testing and experimentation. Bill was good at explaining some novice science to children, but fails outside of that venue.
This entertaining and informative documentary provides a fairly complete picture of Bill Nye, including his childhood, education, the creation of "Bill Nye, The Science Guy" television show, and his current activities. The filmmakers were given tremendous access and also given final cut on content decisions, and this leads to several personal revealing moments that were obviously uncomfortable for Nye. In addition to the personal moments there are a number of fascinating sequences. We get a nice peek behind the scenes at his two interactions with Ken Hamm from Answers in Genesis. We also get to see his work with the Planetary Society on the design and launch of a solar sail propelled space probe, and we follow Nye as he takes a trip to a glacier and talks to scientists about ice core research. Nye and the filmmakers confront the climate change controversy head-on which leads to some uncomfortable moments. The film definitely promotes the scientific consensus that human activity is contributing to climate change, but it also gives opponents a decent amount of screen time. Bottom line, an entertaining documentary that covers both personal and professional sides of Bill Nye and lets us see the man behind the bow tie and lab coat.
Bill Nye is NOT a scientist! Don't let the title fool you. He is nothing but an entertainer with a mechanical engineering degree. Its truly a shame that people are still buying into the crap he is promoting.
The cinematography is brilliant! And as a science evangelist, Bill Nye has been educating the Millennial Generation for the last 20 years. Through his beloved and highly educational mega-hit television series from the 1990s, Bill Nye made the wonder and awe of science entertaining and digestible for millions of millennials, inspiring many to pursue careers science, technology, engineering and math. In the years following his television show, Bill has entered the political arena, defending evolution against steadfast creationists and fighting tirelessly to maintain the integrity of science as it becomes threatened by profit-driven, politically servile decision- making. To Bill, science is "the best idea we've ever had as a species."
