This the complete series all 100 episodes cleansed and upscaled 720p HD. I did my best to clean out as many imperfections as I could which I feel was successful.
Remember that this is an educational show to explain science to kids to make it fun.

The screenshots are taken from a 60” LCD TV with an iPhone playing on a standard Blu-ray player.
The series comes with an interactive menu system which lets you choose the episode you like as well as chapter skips within each episode and a play all feature to play the whole disc.
Nye portrays a hyper-kinetic tall and slender scientist wearing a blue lab coat and a bow-tie. He combines the serious science of everyday things with fast-paced action and humor. Each half-hour show begins with a cold open, where Nye introduces the episode’s theme, which leads into an opening credit sequence, and featuring Nye in a computer animated scientific world, along with his head spinning, radio frequencies, and plastic toy dinosaurs flying. In later seasons, the theme song was cut short by a static screen. After the opening credits, announcer Pat Cashman would say “Brought to you by…”, in which a product name was related to the episode’s theme, followed by Nye walking onto the set, which is called “Nye Laboratories”, filled with scientific visuals including many “of science” contraptions announced dramatically, relevant to the theme of the episode. Science-related TV and movie parodies configure the facts of the episode’s theme, along with parodies of TV commercials. The show has featured many guest appearances. Each episode featured Nye visiting many places relating to the episode’s theme, showing interviews of people talking about their work and other contributions. At the end of each episode, Nye thanks the viewers for watching, before explaining in a clever description of a theme’s activity. The closing credits rolled over bloopers from the episode.
