I don't watch "regular" TV, but my daughter has dragged me into what has become a "Big Bang Theory" addiction. The tall thin man explaining the game is Dr. Sheldon Cooper a CalTech Physicist (originally from lovely Galveston Island in east Texas) with a 186 IQ. He and his Asperger's syndrome are the centerpiece of the show.
I don't think anyone would call me THAT geeky, but I certainly am geeky enough to think that this is the funniest show produced on network TV in a dog's age. One thing I do find a little troubling because of what it says about me is that even when they descend into what's supposed to sound like incomprehensible techno-speak I understand every word, including the technical citations, and the mistakes.
Anyway, I'd highly recommend the show.
(I'd be kicking all this around with my buddy Gary the Physicist from central Texas, but for some reason he isn't returning my calls lately.)
