As reported Monday, the installments of beloved science hero Nye's '90s series hit Netflix over the weekend. It's not every episode — just 30 of the 100 — but it's enough to get you your geeky pleasure. Interestingly, there's a 31st episode listed, "Mammals," but Netflix shows that it's unavailable. #Justice4Mammals. (You can still find it on YouTube.)

Over the years, Nye has retained his popularity with the young fans who grew up with him largely by remaining a part of pop culture, but not an omnipresent fixture of it. His 2014 debate with creationism devotee Ken Ham was a major win for both him and for the principal of evolution. Nye even participated in Dancing with the Stars and had a blast while doing it.

Nye represents how cool it can be to be nerdy, and that makes him one of our most valuable cultural figures. So, need a refresher on calculating probability? Want to re-learn what you've forgotten about Earth's atmosphere? Watch all available episodes of Bill Nye the Science Guy here.
