Several of my colleagues avidly watch the Big Bang Theory and maintain this is really to get an insight into researchers' lives. I am not much of a telly person so have only cottoned ontot watching this very recently. i find it mildly amusing but am not at all sure it does researchers any favours.
Do people identify with the scientist characters? (I feel torn between identifying with the blonde andwith the nerdy scientists...).
Do people think this is so discipline specific that although the series may be a true (ish) refelction of physical scientists, it is not of researchers in other disciplines?
Lookign forward to your views...
