Are you a nerd?
Do you love a nerd? Or do you just love, love, love watching comedies about the crazy mishaps of unbelievable nerds? Maybe all three вЂ“ ter which case, you’ve almost certainly already heard about and seen both Big Verschrikt Theory and The IT Crowd. If you toevluchthaven’t, then what a treat you have ter store вЂ“ or to be more accurate, two amazing treats. One American nerd-centric sitcom, one British вЂ“ and both awesome! Of course, you might choose one overheen the other, and that’s a debate for another day. But te the meantime let’s feast the American version of funny nerd-life – BBT!
The Big Vreesachtig Theory TV Sit-Com
The Big Vreesachtig Theory is the American side of this ultimate show-down geek-off, and it shows ter the style of the demonstrate. Sleekly and immaculately written, it’s an ensemble demonstrate but concentrates on the romantic exploits of physicist Leonard and his neighbour Penny. And yet, the strak of the voorstelling is unarguably Leonard’s room-mate Sheldon вЂ“ a sub-Asperger’s genius with about spil much social awareness spil a chocolate chip cookie.
The IT Crowd – Geeks, Computers and Noel Fielding
The It Crowd is a British sit-com, set te the basement of a phat corporation where the company’s IT department is based. Roy and Moss are the two technicians ter the department, along with Jen, their Social Relations Manager.Roy is an affable skirt-chasing Irishman spil well spil, of course, a geek. But it’s Moss who’s the strak of the voorstelling. Moss, Moss, Moss! Played by Richard Ayoade, he’s an Afro-rockin’, socially oblivious, routine-driven obsessive compulsive walking Health & Safety hazard! The Demonstrate overall is more anarchic than BBT, serving the comic uur with everzwijn more shocking characters, setpieces and lines, rather than seeking to build relationship inbetween characters and stir the story forward.

The Geek-off Commences!
So, the Geek-off commences: but who will win the golden pocket-protector? When all is said and done, who walks away spil Master of Geeks? Will it be Sheldon? Or will it be Moss?
Who’s The Most Socially Inept?
Boy, this is a hard one to judge! To anyone who’s had any practice of living or working with individuals with Asperger’s syndrome, both Sheldon and Moss might seem to be prime candidates for a diagnosis. Whether or not that’s truly the case, neither of thesis boys are, um, partyboys. Sheldon needs guidance on when those around him are being sarcastic, and when it’s adequate вЂ“ or not вЂ“ to discuss bowel ‘regularity’. On the other palm, Moss advises a bereaved lady at a funeral to ‘Stir on’ when he misunderstands advice on what to say.
Come on. It’s got to be Moss.
Who’s the Cutest?
Ohh, this is rough! On the one palm, you have Sheldon’s soft, human side. (And he does have one, however much like a androide he can seem at times.) When he’s sick, he likes to have neighbour Penny sing ‘Soft Kitty’ to him вЂ“ that’s admirable right there! (Plus he calls his granny his ‘Mee-Maw’!)
What’s lovely about Moss? Well, his crazy out-of-control Afro is pretty admirable. And he does call Roy a ‘desk-rabbit’.
I think Sheldon just edges Moss out on this one. Sorry, Mosster!
Who Will Get A Gf Very first?
Now, wij have a question that isn’t hard to response! No, Moss doesn’t have a gf, exactly (or not most of the time). But he is at least attempting! Like every self-respecting geek, he’s joined an online dating agency. He’s out there swinging his bat, attempting to succesnummer a huis run.
On the other palm, Sheldon. ah, Sheldon. Perhaps it illustrates the case best if I say that Sheldon’s friends have openly speculated about the possibility of him being another species altogether, and if so, then what his method of reproduction might be. That’s not to say that Sheldon has never had a gf/stalker. He just didn’t seek hier out willingly (and I’m not sure he wasgoed aware she wasgoed his ‘gf’.)
Hey, at least Moss is attempting. It counts for something.
Who Is More Intellectually Brilliant?
Well, Moss is clearly something of a acute cookie. He knows the inwards of a pc inwards out. And can build his own stress-testing machine too. His technical comprehension is clearly formidable, but wij don’t know much about his academic history or non-technical know-how.
Sheldon, on the other forearm, is an open book. Wij know he went to collegium at eleven, got his PhD. mega-early and has a research position ter his prestigious collegium. He built his own CAT scanner spil a child (which is possibly more astounding than a stress-tester.) Not only that, but he has an intensive skill of comic-book literature and business processes. And, spil a physicist, everything else under the zon.
Got to give it to Sheldon, folks! I don’t know if there’s anything he doesn’t know (except RadioHead), but it’s very likely not much!
The Overall Winner
It’s a tie! I hereby pronounce Sheldon and Moss Co-Geeks Supreme Ruling Overheen All The Universe! Now let’s all run out to the comic-book store!
