I've been watching Community on Netflix. I'm on season 3, episode 7. Big Bang Theory is arse. There are ways of doing references to geek culture that work. You make the reference and move on. Like in Spaced where they drop in Star Wars or Close Encounters without as much as a mention. If you get it you laugh. If you don't you miss it. Big deal.
In Big Bang Theory every single reference is hammered and hammered into your poor destroyed skull. It's not enough to drop a line to Sheldon like "OK Data". It has to be "OK Data from Star Trek the Next Generation. He's like a robot and stuff."
