I've heard of Seinfield but I've never watched it. I like Frasier if that's any consolation?

The big bang theory is pretty good, but by far the best comedy the US have produced is Arrested development, closely followed by Raising hope and the Middle, Modern family is ok but I dont think it deserves the praise and awards its pickes up.

Arrested Development was quite good. Seinfeld will always be one of my faves.

Only if you actually care whether or not he affected anything. I for one am fine with experiencing the adventure along with him. Plus he did quite a bit in the other two.

Haha yeah, I'm only jesting. I was a bit dumbfounded though, I had honestly never considered before that he has no actual relevance on the plot.

I disagree quite strongly. While making fun is definitely part of it, it is a comedy and the fun comes from somewhere.

More importantly the show humanizes nerds, and illustrates that they are people with thoughts and feelings and hey they might be a nerd but they can still be good in the sack.

The show ALSO uses Penny to lampoon the "in crowd" and the more mainstream pursuits of alcohol and social acceptance.

Part of the social value here is that all of these characters have grown and evolved. So the nerds are "less" nerdy; Penny is more educated and selfaware; Raj is able to talk to women; Howard married a woman; and Sheldon is learning that physical contact is OK.

TBBT is also showing that "nerdy" might seem off putting but the characters have all done and achieved things that most people never will. They aren't amazingly wealthy but they are successful in academia.

If anything the sure has a pejorative representation not of nerds but of American intuitions of higher education. All of the professors are either old or nerds. I work for a STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) university. Very few of our faculty are represented by the cultural norms of either the protagonists or their colleagues like Kripke.

Sooooo, back on topic. I think 40K our miniature esteeming getting a plug would be fine. It might change how people relate to it, but from a broader sense growing awareness is good for everyone's business, including the customers.

In addition to many of the shows mentioned, I'm sorry to see The Simpsons not mentioned. There was a good 10 years when the Simpsons was the most literate satire of American life on TV (or possibly anywhere). Sadly, it's now a caricature of itself, because somehow it's still running, long after the writers are retreading old material.

TBBT was okay until it ran out of jokes. It regurgitates new general knowledge and facts with the same joke format. Usually revolving around Sheldon's social awkwardness and 'mannerism punchline'. It's run its course.

However, as a concept, the likes of it and the IT Crowd give a new surface to living - it's not jsut a bunch of beautiful people having hollywood lifestyle choices.
