Bazinga! With the massive success of CBS’ The Big Bang Theory, TV has reached a kind of nerd renaissance. From the video game-loving Penelope Garcia on Criminal Minds to Dwight Schrute on The Office, nerds are everywhere. We’ve come a long way from the suspender-wearing Steve Urkel (Family Matters) of yesterday, but what about you?
Do you like the guys from Freaks and Geeks, Willow (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Marshall (Alias), Minkus (Boy Meets World), Carlton (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), Screech (Saved by the Bell), the Nerd Herd (Chuck), Kenneth (30 Rock), Barney Fife (The Andy Griffith Show), Abed (Community), Abby (NCIS), Chloe (24), Burt (Sesame Street), Walter (Fringe), Lisa (The Simpsons), or Hiro (Heroes)?
