Canberra’s own two Geeks in “Beauty and the Geek”

By Bundah_Bloke - 9 October 2009 18

Canberra punches above its weight intellectually again, this time in Australian Beauty and the Geek where it can claim two, or a massive 25%, of the Geeks while none of the Beauties are. Must be something in the water.

I suggest that Big Bang Theory does not contain good geeks, the little of the show that I could bare watching seemed more like Hollywood’s idea of a geek.

If you want to see a show with good geeks, check out The IT Crowd.

It sounds like you don’t know many PostGrad students. Quite a few of the traits shown by the characters in The Big Bang Theory uncannily match those of several friends and acquaintances.

WHat kills the show is that the geeks are off the street, but of course all the girls are bottom-rung “models” (think Gold Coast Crystie from Big Brother)and have been hired commercially. Shame on Castle Hill School for exposing primary school children to this culture, by the way.

How come the IT problem solver dude from the Canberra Times didn’t get a guernsey?

Because he’s too busy trying to get his USB floppy drive to work with windows 3.1 (at least, last I heard anyway)

I want to know when the show ‘Hunky and the Hideous’ is going on air? Anyone know?

I’m putting $20 on the show lasting no more than 3 weeks in it’s timeslot before getting axed or moved to 11pm or later. What made them think that creating an Australian version of a load of garbage american show that screens at some hour very late at night was a good idea? Scraping the bottom of the barrel..

I would prefer to believe that all of the wonderful Canberra lady folk are actually smart enough not to debase themselves or the fine city that is Canberra by attempting to pander to the mindless masses on such an insipid, soul destroying 48 minutes of television pain.

Good geeks never televise well.

Oh I don’t know. Big Bang Theory (on Go 88) is my current best show on tele, and more than enough reason to go buy a $90 HD digital tuner for anyone who hasn’t yet bought one.

Love it!

We Canberra beauties know we can get the good geeks before they go onto TV. Good geeks never televise well.

I am aware that Jeremy Reading is from Canberra – but I thought he was the only one! Jeremy is the red-headed, not so ‘nerdy’ looking Geek. I believe his partner – aka ‘Miss Congeniality’ – won the teaching challenge during last nights episode.

Weirdly enough I apparently went to the same Primary School as him – what an awesome claim to fame!!!

What an awesome show! (from a perv’s perspective anyway)

Anyone know which two are the Canb boys?
