That's just the thing though, people can't tell the difference and I don't think the show even knows it, having all those characters around who apparently know very little about science but who are being portrayed as prodigies.
I learned about this show when friends told me "hey, you're a science type, you'll love BBT. It's so funny and clever!"
Then I watched it and it wasn't clever at all. But it is designed to look as if it is.
When will we get our own show where a vim user and an emacs user, both contributors to the linux kernel, have to share an apartment next door from a frontend web developer writing ruby in SublimeText?
