    Don’t Worry About It

    May 19, 2017

    I must admit, I had extremely high expectations when I first heard about the Bill Nye the Science Guy reboot. Some of my most treasured childhood memories are tied to Bill Nye the Science Guy, and I was terrified that this reboot would be a huge let down like Fuller House was.
