  •  Wow (0+ / 0-)
    Thru brilliant writing, brilliant direction and casting, brilliant acting, and by being a stickler for background scientific accuracy, a series based on the risky premise of portraying men and women of cutting edge science as lovable, delightfully flawed humans beings has become a smash hit,
    That's a pretty unique way to phrase the formula of a TV show that's basically "nerd blackface".

    •  I think the show started off well, (0+ / 0-)

      but after a few seasons lapsed into formula situation comedy with too many jokes aimed at women and men who act like women, who might, oh horrors, be gay. We sort of fell out of love with it once all the guys paired up and the focus drifted from a group of people who lived science to just another group of people in an apartment building who meet at the same coffee house, bar, or cheese cake factory.
