One of my favorite new shows is The Big Bang Theory. I already blogged about liking the link between genius and science fiction. But last night's episode reminded me that I also like the way they have a smart woman as well as smart guys. Yes, it's only a 1-to-4 ratio, but at least Leslie Winkel got her chance to shine last night. And also, Leslie seems a good deal better adapted to society than our four very bright but socially clueless guys, so that's a kind of balance.
But really, I love the show because of the writing—clever, witty, fun, and loaded with in-joke science fiction references. What's not to like?
