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*.

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.

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.
My fiance got me into this show and I am super happy he did! This show is amazing!
Makes me laugh every time, even if you have seen the episode 6 times before!
Anyone that has ever felt like a nerd, or like they didn't belong. This is a hilarious comedy that is surprisingly relate able - about a group of super-smart, super-nerdy, socially awkward guys, starting to fit in in the world of "way out of their league women".
