Sex and The Big Bang Theory: Why TV Nerds Don't Get It On

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A multimedia presentation followed by a group discussion about one of the most polarizing TV shows aimed at nerds in the history of television - The Big Bang Theory. It will examine sex/gender in TBBT and discuss how cliched writing and tropes not-so-secretly make fun of the characters in the show. It will NOT be an entirely anti-TBBT panel - the show has lots of positives which will be examined as well, supported by clips and *~*super fun graphs*~*.

We will focus on how lady-nerds are excluded from the show by illustrating how the showrunners depict women as either hot and dumb, or smart and sexually inept. I'll also demonstrate how the character of Penny is not as fun and lovable as she's made out to be - in fact, she might be scarier than a 15th level mind flayer!

There will be an opportunity for people to point out their most and least favourite moments of TBBT and talk about whether they identify with any of the characters or scenarios from the show.
