Geeks on TV
Geeks on TV
Nerds, geeks, dweebs -- we've all heard the terms. This season, expect to see them everywhere. "Big Bang Theory," "Beauty and the Geek," and "Chuck" all feature at least one nerdy character. So what makes a geek? They're the hard-working, bow tie clad and usually awkward sidekicks with the one-liner punchlines and "woe is me" persona. They may not get the girl (unless they're Seth Cohen) and they probably don't dress very cool (we're looking at you, Steve Urkel), but they have big hearts. And when it comes to geeks on TV, you can't help but love them.
