I'll never understand how this guy got so much geek cred. I just watched Dollhouse, his new show on Fox, and it's the same shit: sci-fi with no sci, superheroines, sassy nerd character, and everyone is written as some type of obnoxious LA/Hollywood stereotype. Most characters sound like valley girl teeny boppers, even when it doesn't suit them at all, and everyone is overly catty and bitchy. He creates a universe where effeminate backtalk is the norm. This, obviously, drives me fucking insane and jst making it through the one hour program is quite a strain.
He also perfectly illustrates my belief that there are two very different kinds of male geeks: the fruity nerd and the manboy nerd. Fruity nerd likes pussy-ass shit like Nintendo, Buffy/Firefly, emo and indie rock, Star Wars, and Naruto. Fruity nerd is most likely produced by a lack of testosterone and overall sissiness making him a social outcast. Manboy nerd, however, likes hardcore shit like first person shooters, Lost, metal, Star Trek, and Bleach. Manboy nerd's intelligence is what makes him a social outcast, but he is still a guy and therefore loves explosions, killer robots, and boobies.
Look for more on my anthropological study of the modern Cro-magnerd in my Master's thesis.
