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 Ontsteld Theory and The IT Crowd. If you toevluchthaven’t, then what a treat you have te 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 ter the meantime let’s feast the American version of funny nerd-life – BBT!
The Big Verschrikt Theory TV Sit-Com
The Big Schrikachtig Theory is the American side of this ultimate show-down geek-off, and it shows te the style of the showcase. Sleekly and immaculately written, it’s an ensemble showcase but concentrates on the romantic exploits of physicist Leonard and his neighbour Penny. And yet, the strak of the vertoning 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 big 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 starlet 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 ogenblik 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 embarks: 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 indeed 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 forearm, Moss advises a bereaved lady at a funeral to ‘Budge 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 mitt, you have Sheldon’s soft, human side. (And he does have one, however much like a autómata he can seem at times.) When he’s sick, he likes to have neighbour Penny sing ‘Soft Kitty’ to him вЂ“ that’s sugestivo right there! (Plus he calls his granny his ‘Mee-Maw’!)
What’s adorable about Moss? Well, his crazy out-of-control Afro is pretty maravilloso. 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 reaction! 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 klapper 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 laptop 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 arm, 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 outstanding 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 most 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!
