Let’s face it, there’s a lot of crap on TV these days (which reminds me, I need to set the DVR for The Real World: Portland tonight). Thankfully, the PBS Avengers — Bob Ross, Bill Nye, Carl Sagan, Mister Rogers — are here to save us from the Honey Boo Boos and Kardashians of the world.

And, yes, we know three of those guys are dead, but for this story’s purpose, Bill Nye probably has them cryogenically stored somewhere — primed for resurrection at a moments’ notice.
