Thursday Top Threes: Geeks!

J: Top three fictional computer geeks!

Jennifer: Way too many to choose from! Gotta go with the girl geeks first though!
1. Chloe O'Brian from 24. Hilariously blunt and grumbling and socially awkward but becomes Jack Bauer's most loyal and trusted sidekick.
2. Willow Rosenberg from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Well, more from the early seasons anyway. "It's the computer age! Nerds are in! They're still in, right?"
3. Chuck Bartowski from Chuck. I've been up and down on this show and all of the Chuck/Sarah relationship angst but I still really love Zachary Levi in this role. TV boyfriend!

Mira: Fun question!
1. Liz Lemon from 30 Rock: I mean, I only wanna be her and all, or at least have her job. :)
2. Seth Cohen from The OC: He got kind of annoying by the end of the show, but I thought they all got kind of annoying and stopped watching it, though Jenn swears the final season was okay. Still Seth in the early days was adorable!
3. Hiro from Heroes: Yet another show that got really annoying by the end, but I was super excited about the show when it first came out and I thought Hiro was one of the best, if not the best, characters on it!

so... maybe i strayed from the "computer" part of the computer geek a little and focused on the "geek" part. :)

wow, so many to choose from...too many! and i'll focus more on the word geek than computer:
1) the "squints" on Bones (Dr. Brennan, Hodgins, and all of Brennan's various assistants)
2) Landry on Friday Night Lights. my man!
3) Lt. Tao on The Closer.
(honorable mentions to Marshall on In Plain Sight, Leo on Fairly Legal, and new discovery Mozzie on White Collar)
