    So we were looking to see if the old show Bill Nye the Science Guys was available on DVD. The only place it can be purchased is through Disney's Educational Productions... for $2,999.00.

    I can get a a whole bunch of science classes at the community college for that money!

    Well that is a lot but it also includes 2600 episodes so it is just over $1 per episode. Though I do agree the money could be spent in a better way. I suppose if it was for educational purposes like for school or homeschooling, one might see the value for the lump sum.

    Actually there were only 100 episodes made, at 26 minutes each. That is $29.99 per 26 minute episode. These were fantastic shows, but that is really a lot of money per episode

    For my MS science class last year I used the Bill Nye videos. Just you tube them. Each episode is broken down into approximately 8 minute segments.

    And best of all youtube is free!!:cool1:
