Are Geeks'n Nerds the new 'typical' hero?

Am I the only one who has noticed a radical change in movie-heroes? -Don't get me wrong, the "typical-guy" is a classical (stereotyped) movie-hero. But it seems to have been taken further. I am especially thinking of Michael Cera (- who most significantly embody the concept of the heroic geek Juno , Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist), Jesse Eisenberg ( Adventureland ) and Andy Samberg. All of which display a wonderful bunch of 'geeky hairstyles' - a clear standpoint on standing out (which I can only applaud). We see it in television as well with 'the Big Bang Theory' gang where geeks have rockstar-like status, and Ugly Betty . Even the reality show ' Beauty and the Geek has changed our stereotyped outlook on the 'geek'. To me it has been long in the making -starting with 'That 70's show's Eric & 'Friends' Ross -escalating slowly to become more significant.... but I might be wrong -what do you think?

Discuss: Did Bang Go Out with a Big Bang? - Featured

I've really come to love The Big Bang Theory in its second season. The show has undeniably developed into something far greater than what it was in its pilot. That being said, I wasn't in love with last night's season finale, and I'd like to hear what you guys think! Of course, the show had it's characteristic funny gags and laugh-out-loud moments. I loved Penny's responding to Sheldon's obnoxious door-knocking routine, the writers' awareness of current trends (Leonard: "Yes, how did we live before Twitter?") and probably most of all, how the guys' North Pole living room setup exactly mimicked their setup at home. As I've mentioned before, I love how Raj and Wolowitz have become larger characters on the show. In fact, my favorite line of the night was courtesy of Raj: "But if we were part of the team that confirmed string theory, we could drink for free...in any bar...in any college town with a university that has a strong science program!" Furthermore, the interaction between Raj's parents and Wolowitz's mom was hilarious. However, I didn't love the Leonard/Penny storyline. The show excels when it moves away from their romance (in my mind), so concluding on Penny's "Oh, I guess I do have feelings for Leonard" seemed like a bit of a step backwards for me...and a little anticlimactic as a whole. 1) Isn't this exactly how the first season concluded? and 2) Are we really expected to believe that Penny does have feelings for Sheldon after all? Penny's renewed interest in Leonard seemed a little bit out of nowhere to me and just a cheap way to throw in a cliffhanger that wasn't even particularly compelling. In reality, I don't think it will amount to much of anything, as Penny will undoubtedly find a new boyfriend in Leonard's absence. What say you? Do you disagree with me? Think the Leonard/Penny story was a big bang of a conclusion? Discuss! Image courtesy of: TVSquad

Was Yesterday`s episode season finale?

Hi, I was just wondering, was episode "The Monopolar Expedition" season finale? Or is it still one more episode to go?

Discuss: Series with Notable Theme Songs - Featured

In recent times, many series have opted to forgo the full-length opening theme song/sequence and replace it with either a sort of half song (think Gossip Girl and Greek ) or just a flash of the show's name (think Lost and as of last season, One Tree Hill ). Even shows that used to have full length opening credits have recently started to abbreviate them - like Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy . I agree that some shows don't need a full opening sequence (I can't imagine any sort of opening credits that would do Lost justice), but in general, it's a great way to set the stage for the show. 10 of my personal favorite opening credits/sequences that I believe are particularly defining to their respective shows: 1. Friends (1994) - Watch! 2. Six Feet Under - Watch! 3. Dexter - Watch! 4. Arrested Development - Watch! 5. Mad Men - Watch! 6. The Big Bang Theory - Watch! 7. The West Wing - Watch! 8. Star Trek: The Next Generation - Watch! 9. The O.C. - Watch! 10. The Sopranos - Watch! What are your favorite TV theme songs/opening credits?

TBBT s02e15 - The Maternal Capacitance

This TBBT is goooooooood! You get to see Leonard's mum! I was wondering when that would happen, coz we've already seen Sheldon's mum, Raj's parents and i'm quite happy with just hearing Walowitz's mum shout in the background... seeing her does scare me a little. :)
