Bill Nye is a man on a mission, to stop the spread of anti-scientific thinking across the world. With intimate and exclusive access, as well as plenty of wonder and whimsy, this behind the scenes portrait of Nye follows him as he takes off his Science Guy lab coat and takes on those who deny climate change, evolution, and a science-based world view.

The tag line on the biographical documentary is : One Man's Mission to Make Science Matter. I agree with his mission wholeheartedly, especially in this anti-scientific, anti-intellectual time in the world's history. That being said, I found this documentary disorganized and fragmentary, unable to focus on any aspect of his mission or what drives it. It loses focus completely when it veers off into his personal life, his parents' unhappy marriage, the genetic condition ataxia that both his siblings suffer from, and particularly a conversation with a psychologist about what celebrity is doing to his brain and why he never married or had a family. On the other hand, the brief appearance of Neil Degrasse Tyson was truly a joy. We should have seen far more of him than we did.
