  2. Bill Nye Saves the World?: A Review

    This is not an article I wanted to write.

    This weekend I watched all 13 episodes of the new Netflix series, Bill Nye Saves the World. And there’s only one word to describe my mood: disappointed.

    I probably don’t need to tell you about my love for Bill Nye. If you’ve listened to anything I’ve said here on Nerdy Show, you know it runs deep. Bill helped develop my love of science. He showed me that science could be “cool” and I could be “cool” for liking it. Bill Nye the Science Guy is a major reason I became an engineer.

    So I was excited for his new show. I really, truly was. But Bill Nye Saves the World is not a reincarnation of the television show that ignited my love of science. At best, it’s an awkward attempt at cashing in on childhood nostalgia. It’s a show that has no idea what it is and who it’s for. Is it meant to teach people more about complex scientific principles? Or is it more of a science-y Daily Show with correspondents mocking creationists and conspiracy theorists?

    After 13 episodes, I’m still no closer to an answer.

  6. EarthBound Composer Keiichi Suzuki Scores US Film, Crowdfunds Vinyl Release

    for the plasma

    EarthBound is the biggest cult hit in video game history for a great many reasons and we’ve extolled those reasons myriad times in the past here on The Nerdy Show Network. Without question, one of the most celebrated aspects of the game’s awesomeness is its score, created by Keiichi Suzuki and Hirokazu “Hip” Tanaka. The score’s avant-garde genre fusion has topped game music lists, and influenced a whole generation of musicians following its release. (In fact, this past month I hosted a panel of musicians Camp Fangamer celebrating the music of EarthBound – you can hear it as a perk on our Patreon). Suzuki’s influence doesn’t just reach to a revered game series, he founded the new wave bands Hachimitsupai and the Moonriders and composed for revered Japanese films like Tokyo Godfathers and the 2003 revival of Zatoichi. Now he’s scoring his first US film and is crowdfunding a vinyl release. (more…)

  10. Creators Unite at the Nickelodeon Happy Happy! Joy Joy! SDCC Panel

    25_years_nickelodeonIt’s rare to find a kid who grew up in the 90s and wasn’t profoundly influenced by Nickelodeon programming. Such was the theme of the San Diego Comic Con panel “Happy Happy! Joy Joy!: 25 Years of Nickelodeon Original Animation.”

    Panelists included original animation creators Craig Bartlett (Hey Arnold!), Butch Hartman (The Fairly OddParents, Bunsen is a Beast!), Jhonen Vasquez (Invader Zim) and Arlene Klasky (Rugrats). This panel was a part of the company’s promotion of The Splat, a block of programming dedicated to Nickelodeon’s iconic series from the 90s and early 00s, but also had some inside looks at the upcoming Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie, Hartman’s new show Bunsen is a Beast!, and the debut of Vasquez’s own original TMNT short.
