Personally, I never been into Comic Books and I don’t play the same types of Video Games The Guys play. I like Grand Theft Auto, Car and Racing Games World War 2 Games.
I have never like Science except Space Science but even that is very mixed. I did not do well in Science in School it was too hard for to understand and is still hard for me to understand or get a lot of it. I have never understood half what The Guys were talking about when it comes to Science and Math but The Show has been a good learning experience at times.
I have never been part of the Nerd/Geeky Culture or into it like The Guys are. was not one in school either. I never heard of most the People mention in this Show until I watch it. Some I had no idea who they were. A lot of the Science References I have never gotten or other References to TV Shows and Movies they like.
I never read any of the books The Guys have read (or like the same kind of books) or Watch (or like) any of The Movies or TV Shows the Guys like or watch except for Back to The Future and Star Wars.
Needless to say I don’t have the same interest as The Guys or like the same thing they do. I am not interested in the same things like Science and Comic Books. I like History and Genealogy. I not loke the Guys in that way I don’t have same Hobbies
I got a very different taste in TV and Movies from the Guys. I watch or like Shows like I Love Lucy, The Honeymooners, Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Leave It to Beaver, Perry Mason, The Andy Griffith Show, Hazel, The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, All In The Family, The Jeffersons, Sanford and Son, Good Times, Maude, The Waltons, M*A*S*H, Little House On The Prairie, Happy Days, Three’s Company, Cheers, Growing Pains, Roseanne, Seinfeld, Fresh Prince, Frasier, Friends, Raymond, 30 Rock, etc,.
I sure none of The Guys have ever watch any of those Shows. I guess maybe I a little nerdy because I was born in the last 30 Years but I much prefer or like TV Shows, Movies and Music from the 50s-80s much better then most of The TV Shows, Music and Movies we have now. I much rather listen to Johnny Cash and The Battles then anything we have now. TV Shows and Movies were a lot better 20-40 Years ago.
What can I say I just like the oldies and classics. They are a lot better then most of what is considered entertaining today.
I guess I relate to Penny more or am more like her then all The Guys because as with Penny I like, listen and watch mostly mainstream stuff. I get all the reference she make to TV Shows and Entertainers like The Brady Bunch and The Kardashians even though I don’t watch them or like them. I know (mostly) who all the people are that she mention and a the Shows she mentions. I always know what she talking about or Referencing to
I do like English History and Literature like Amy.
I also love Western History, Films and Western TV Shows. Of course it is Integrated into My State History and Culture I couldn’t imagine any of the Guys watching anything Western (not even Sheldon where Texas has a strong western culture and History) but I could see maybe Penny depending on what show movie and if it has lot of Romance. I like historical ans war films they are my favorite
What drew me to TBBT is that it is a Funny good well-rounded decently written show with (mostly like able) Characters. Unlike on shows in the past The Nerds on on This Show are are likable. Leonard I never really thought of as a Nerd.
