Two awkward brainiacs must contend with a hot blonde moving in across the hall, and find that quantum theory and applied physics are little help in social situations. An intelligent comedy for the uber nerd in all of us.

Ok, this show is my guilty pleasure. I'm a self-professed geek, and I work with geeks all day who lambast the show for playing too heavily on stereotypes, but I find the jokes to be of a slightly higher intelligence level than some of Chuck Lorre's other shows *cough*Two and a Half Men*cough*.

I find this show insulting for perpetuating the geek and nerd stereotype. Simply put -this is a show about smart people for stupid people.

I think the problem with modern comedy is it tries to be drama comedy. Characters are suppose to be static because they are exaggerated versions of ourselves. This show is losing that, trying to make us invest in impotent romances and contrived moments. It is getting worse but its still watchable, as a sitcom.

i used to love this show the first couple of seasons were great. but i recently gave up on it seeing as the jokes stopped being clever science jokes and more caned lol at the fact that they read comics and what nerds they are. not to mention how awful and mean most of the male characters treat their female counter parts. linard is the only nice one out of the bunch. the first 4 seasons are worth watching though. big side plus wil...

I love this show! I love the geeky humour, the great characters and the sweet, heartfelt moments. The jokes are (almost) always funny AND smart, the character development over the seasons is really nice, which makes it even more fun to rewatch this series again and again. Pure gold!

People thinking this show makes fun of geeks simply don't get it, or lack the ability to laugh about themselves. Yes, the characters are portrayed as mean or pathetic sometimes, but that's real life! In the end they learn their lessons and evolve, that's called character development.

Makes me laugh every time, even if you have seen the episode 6 times before!

To me, this is the perfect show. It is smart, funny, romantic, educational, and never dull. I came across this show late because I'm rarely into American comedies, but I am so glad I happened across an episode. Trust me when I say this show is laugh-out-loud funny, but it's not stupid humor (like all of the FOX comedies). WATCH, I command you!

Love when they include science related jokes. Can be annoying how much they play into certain stereotypes
