I disagree. This is exactly why I didn't like it. (two episodes) All the males talk in high, whiny voices with near lisps. None of my nerdy/geeky/smart friends are like that. The worst are neckbeards with the generic 250lb stained shirt, and others are fit athletes who just like to fantasy game. But none of them are so distinctly ... fruity. I don't care that they have "girlfriends", it doesn't seem like they would like girls. Being a nerd doesn't make you ultra feminine.

not that that there's anything wrong with that./seinfeld

Do you think the caricature nature of the characters are accidental? These nerds fortunately border on the geek, or they would never be seen near a girl.

LOL guilty as charged! Sorry! This is a not a hardcore SimSitCom, its clearly for casuals. My fear is, Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I'm the casual, and the hardest core nerds and geeks are feminine and lispy wearing skinny jeans, and I'm simply... old.

I haven't seen any TrackIR support, so it's clearly sim-light at best.

You are just old, Rakov wink I have a whole bunch of friends, who are exactly the same kind of nerds - since i saw the first episode i was thinking to myself: "Hell, this is story of my life!" smile

I've known and loved a lot of guys like Sheldon, Leonard, Raj, and Howard. In fact, I married one in 1997. He resembles Leonard the most of the four.

I always liked geeks when I was dating. They don't date a lot of gals and therefore appreciate us when they do get one of us. I wouldn't trade mine for all the gold in Ft. Knox. Besides, they don't think it's weird to like Star Trek. :*P

Holy crap, I just realized in company with Lil'Jugs and Panther, I've spent the last decade playing Penny/Bernadette/Amy to your all's Sheldon, Leonard, Raj, and Howard on these forums.

My favorite episode ever is the one where Sheldon is doing battle with the long-tailed jay outside his window.

Every time he turns on the ultrasonic generator, I just bust a gut, it's that funny every time.

The show has grown on me somewhat- but they aren't just nerds, they are unusually neurotic. I've known very intelligent people without social skills, but these characters run the gamut of all kinds of mental disorders and social conniptions.

My favorite character is Howard- the sleazier, horny guy. In a way, he understands the perverted intentions behind all human action, he just can never really put his act together and hide in himself what others normally do.


No one gets out of here alive.

I've tried to like this show, but dealing with Sheldon's neurotic tendencies annoys me too much. Some of the humour is fall on your face funny, and then he walks in. Ruins it for me everytime. I just can't.

Yeah, kind of flat. I have faith they can pull it out, but the "Sam and Diane" factor in a show like this that initially builds it up, eventually drags it down and kills it.

oh, don't worry, soon Howard and Bernadette will have a baby and that opens up a whole new can of great stories.

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
