POLL: ‘Chuck’ or ‘Big Bang Theory’?
Which TV show do you prefer, ‘Chuck’ or ‘Big Bang Theory’? It seems to me that there are two camps of geek TV watchers this season. After talking with a great number of people, I’ve noticed that geeks watch either ‘Chuck’ or ‘Big Bang Theory’, but not both. I realize both airs at the same time, but with DVRs and downloadables (heck, even old fashioned VCRs) it’s very feasible to be a fan of both.
Please take a moment to answer the poll in the right-hand sidebar of this page. If you are reading this on LiveJournal, Facebook, an RSS feeder, or elsewhere, please visit the main site for my blog, http://onceuponageek.com to answer the poll question. Also, feel free to post comments explaining why you are a fan of one or the other.
If you’ve ever read my blog, then you know I personally prefer ‘Chuck’. I’ve tried watching ‘Big Bang Theory’, but after seeing the way the geeks act on that show I’m mildly offended. Using the Social Order Venn Diagram, I feel the characters on ‘Big Bang Theory’ qualify as ‘nerds’ rather than ‘geeks’. I know several ‘normal people’ who watch ‘Big Bang Theory’ and automatically assume that’s what life is like for me and my friends. I then have to explain that those are not my people; we have the social skills. Regardless, that’s my opinion. I’m more interested in hearing your opinion.
The presidential election may be over, but here is your chance to vote on something that really doesn’t matter in the universal scheme of things! Yay!
