Everyone who grew up in the 90s watched Bill Nye The Science Guy, there is no doubt in my mind. It was essentially required viewing for all of us in school, and even when we weren't in class we would watch it at home.

The fact of the matter was, Bill Nye made science fun and he was such an icon of the decade. Flash forward to 2017, the man is still teaching us about science in his new Netflix show.

The original show was on the air between 1993-1998, but even though it has been off the air for nearly 20 years there is still some controversy about the profits. The show was a half hour series that had 5 seasons and 100 episodes, but we all know it was so much more than that. Bill Nye The Science Guy was educational while still being fun and it really impacted a lot of our lives. But for the business-minded, what all of that really means, is a huge syndication deal and a lot of continuing profits.

I think we can all agree that we all owe a lot to Bill Nye and his Emmy award-winning show. It taught us complicated concepts in easy to learn ways with a host who was fun to watch. That is a lot of factors to manage to balance and the fact that it worked is incredible.

But even though the show was universally loved, that doesn't mean that it is without its controversy. Currently, Bill Nye himself is actually in a large legal battle with the people who made the show!
