I've been waiting for Sleepy to say she watched them all over the weekend.

Haha I didn't watch them all, I actually got pretty busy, but I'm about 4 episodes in. Here's the gist of the show:

Each episode revolves around one topic. So far each topic seems to be one that is pretty big in politics right now (So far I've watched Global Warming, Vaccinations, GMOs, aanndndd...uh... I can't remember the other)
Bill Nye does 1-2 experiments relating to the shows topic
There's a panel of 3 "experts" relating to the field in some way. Expert is a loose term. The last show was relating to GMO's and he had a farmer (from Iowa!) on the panel. An expert in her field, I'm sure (haha...) but not what most people think of when you say Expert.
There's one "journalism" type clip where one of the shows "correspondants" go out and interview people or research the topic and put together a 5-10 minute clip.

It's pretty interesting but not as experiment charged as I had hoped. The show is definitely geared towards people of my age (mid 20's). The kids who grew up with the original Bill Nye show.

That was my biggest complaint with White Rabbit Project.

What's the length of Bill Nye? Based on what you said an hour episode seems like too much time and it might get boring. 30 minutes seems about right.

Honestly I'm not 100% sure. I was watching while folding laundry, and I had a LOT to fold so I just binged it a little.

This show has good points, but the format of a live audience makes people not care. It's distracting

Length confirmed. Roughly 30 minutes. Layout typically is as follows: small experiment/demonstration, journalism piece, panel of experts, and a small gag bit or celebrity bit.

People do not like this show.
Reddit post people all complaining

3.3/10 on IMDB
The top rated episode is 5.3/10

Seems the biggest issue is who exactly the show is targeted for? Experiments seem to be for kids, but some of the content is clearly adult in nature.

It's very bad. I don't even like it as background noise
