Our favourite comedy TV shows} ?> Geeks are no longer stereotyped as socially-inept computer whizzes with allergies and glasses, but have taken over the silver screen as intelligent nerds with a vision. While we might still laugh at Moss for blurting out whatever he’s thinking or Chuck for being nervous around Sarah, we more often laugh with them than at them. These shows are some of the geekiest and funniest we’ve ever seen.
1. The IT Crowd
Roy: Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again? Uh… okay, well, the button on the side, is it glowing? Yeah, you need to turn it on… uh, the button turns it on… yeah, you do know how a button works don’t you? No, not on clothes.
A show about tech support, the most indispensable of geeks. It’s dry wit is why we love it.
Jeff: For your information, I don’t have an ego. My Facebook photo is a landscape.
Maybe not branded as a “geek” show, but they do their references right. The paintball and D&D episodes are our favourites.
Lester: You’re out-gunned, out-manned, out…side, and it’s a lovely day, so throw down your gun and nobody gets hurt.
It’s got action, romance, spies, drama, crime, wit, and a dash of nerdiness. It’s pretty much the perfect show.
4. The Big Bang Theory
Sheldon: Interesting. You’re afraid of insects and women. Ladybugs must render you catatonic.
Lots of geeks don’t like The Big Bang Theory because it seems to be made more for people like Penny rather than for people like Leonard or Sheldon, but some of us find it amusing nonetheless.
5. The Guild
Codex: So, it’s uh Friday night and… still jobless, yay. I haven’t left the house in a week. My therapist uh, broke up with me… oh yeah, there’s a Gnome Warlock in my living room sleeping on my couch.
The quote above pretty much says it all.
