Re: Big Bang-Next Generation

Here's the thing: BBT is a farce that makes fun of the foibles and ridiculous behavior of its characters, as comedies tend to do. It's not meant to be a fair and objective portrayal of us geeky types, nor is it morally obligated to present us in a positive light. Are all geeks on TV supposed to be positive role models--or are we just not supposed to poke fun at ourselves when the "mundanes" are watching?

And, speaking as someone who has stayed up to 3 AM in the morning arguing about the metaphysical implications of transporter beams, BBT seems pretty on-target to me!
