I’ve never been a huge fan of Big Bang Theory… and this surprises a lot of people. I’m often told things like “I’ll bet you love that show” and “oh come on, that’s so you!” And I think that’s one of the things that bothers me about it… I mean, I’m a geek, nerd, whatever you want to call it, and that’s cool. I guess I just don’t like to see that exploited so unabashedly. It makes it feel like they canned it, and made it a spectacle, and that doesn’t sit right for me.

On a positive note, it seems to be reasonably well-written (relative to most sitcoms), for the few episodes I’ve seen. And they appear to do their research. So I guess I won’t complain too much about something that’s ultimately helping with “acceptance” of geek/nerd culture. Even if it does trivialize it at the same time.


For some balance here, I actually like Big Bang Theory. I came up with this idea while watching it. It’s basically a live action cartoon to me, and I think that’s why I like it. But, it’s patterns really are very obvious, which means the show runs the risk of getting old (which I’m aware has already happened for a lot of people). Regardless, I’m still going to keep watching it for a cheap laugh.
