    "I remember watching Bill Nye The Science Guy when I was a kid. I enjoyed the show a lot. I always thought that it was funny but interesting at the same time. It definitely is a great educational tv show. Bill Nye did a wonderful job in getting kids hyped up about science. I found it very cool myself. "

    "My kids and I love Dora but what is up with the music that BLASTS before the episode begins. Amazon needs to fix the volume of the Nickelodeon intro it is much louder then the show itself so my kids and I are constantly having to watch out for that part every time a new episode starts."

    "I love, love, love this show! It is entertaining and so funny. You actually learn without realizing you are learning. The show is interesting enough so that you end up researching further on the topics they cover, and before you know it you have learned something about science. Highly recommended!"
