Okay, so there are about 50 other projects/things I should be doing, but instead I want to contemplate a freiend near and dear to most of our hearts -- the Television Geek.

In turning on the NCIS marathon for background noise this morning, Karen spouted out an interesting truth: Its cool to be a geek these days.

CSI, NCIS, Bones, House, Grey's Anatomy, Criminal Minds. I have never been a large consumer of network television from an active watching perspective but have always considered it a form or white noise. But the characters that are drawing millions of watchers that object to "reality" television is indeed, the geek.

Geeks (mostly) have jobs. Geeks have interests. Geek usually have money.

And our market economy in the form of television which has smart and socially awkward characters saving the world putting away one "bad guy" at time.

Its a beautiful thing. Vive les Geeks!
