Known for its quirky humor and rapid-fire MTV-style pacing, the show won critical acclaim and was nominated for 23 Emmy Awards, winning nineteen.

A super cool and funny scientist named Bill Nye, the Science Guy takes the viewers into the world of science by presenting it in a humorous and fast-paced action-like manner. In between, there would be segments related to the scientific topic of the episode that included experiments, facts, and tricks. At the end of each episode, there would be a music video of the day's subject, followed by Nye signing off.
