Quite easilly the best biology show, ever. Not the best scientific show, though. Captain Planet holds that title. Bill Nye was pretty sweet too. Anyway, anyone watch this show? I wish this younger generation would get into better programming, like the shows in the early-mid 90's...

Yeah, I've seen it-- that show was pretty sweet. I'm all about intelligent childrens' programming. (Magic School Bus also put out a really good series of childrens' science books a few years ago. I remember them from when I worked at a book store...)
HOWEVER, being an old fart who grew up in the 80's, nothing compares to the good old PBS shows like "3-2-1 Contact" or "Square One Television". Those shows win.

That was my favorite show while I was growing up (in Canada). I learned a lot and I think that helped set the foundation for my love of science. As well, my former high school French teacher is almost an exact real-life replica of Ms. Frizzle, complete with the red hair and crazy shoes. Too bad that teacher was more artsy than scientific.

I remember that show. Arnold always got the short straw.
Attention Manga Lust fans: Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction. In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

I grew up with it. Oh, man, I adored that show. I watched it every day! The themesong was catchy, and I seem to remember liking the Christmas Specials.
Arnold was like, my favourite.
You're cruising on down Main Street. You're relaxed and feeling good. Next thing that you know you're seeing an octopus in the neighborhood! Surfing on a sound wave. Swinging through the stars. Take a left at your intestine. Take your second right past Mars.
On the Magic School Bus navigate a nostril. Climb on the Magic School Bus - spank a plankton, too. On the Magic School Bus raft a river of lava. On the Magic School Bus such a fine thing to do!
So strap your bones right to the seat. Come on in and don't be shy. Just to make your day complete, you might get baked into a pie.
On the Magic School Bus step inside - it's a wild ride! Come on and ride on the Magic School Bus!

Oh my God, "Magic School Bus!!!" I loved that show!!! In fact, I even decided to go to school late so I could watch it this morning on TV while I ate my cheerios! It's on sometime around 7:30 in the morning on TLC, if you guys are interested! It was all about conducting heat - pretty cool! Ms. Frizzle explains it all so much better than my physics teacher...
Hey, while we're strolling down memory lane, anyone here remember Bill Nye?
