Are TRTs/IT Guys Now Cool?

Zachary Levi as "Chuck" (copyright NBC) Say the word “geek” and you probably have visions of nasal sounding, thick glasses, high water pants, and other sundry things that would cause women to go running the direction opposite of the approaching I.T./computer guy. Ask a person if they’d rather hang out with a geek or get a root canal, and one would envision them diving into the dentist’s chair, strapping themselves in and gladly volunteering to open their mouths for the impending pain. Given a personality test, geeks often fail. Ah, but thanks to NBC, and Zachary Levi, I.T. guys now have been elevated to status of cool dudes, snazzy dressers, and ones that actually can form thoughts outside the computer world. Have you seen it? It’s on Monday nights at 8:00 on Channel 10 (Norfolk) and is worthy of watching–it won’t insult your intelligence. When I first saw the commercial for the show (Wow! Did he copy my style of clothing or what!), I panicked, for Hollywood rarely has shows on for long that I like and find humorous. Hmmm…I wonder if I could ever meet the show’s star? Stop by my office sometime and let’s do lunch!

  1. My family and I love this show. In fact, this past summer, we went to and watched all 13 first-season episodes online. It was fun reliving the initial Nerd Herd rush of last year.
