If f.r.i.e.n.d.s was the beginning of the end for american intellectualism, how do we explain current shows like “The Big Bang Theory”, which are glorifying so called nerdy behavior, or “silicon valley” which glorifies entrepreneurship and software engineering as professions. Or even “House”, which brought an appreciation of medical science and quick wit into households all over the world.

Maybe there is a polarization of media as the amount of media produced increases, or maybe we hit the pinnacle of anti-intellectualism and now are moving in a new direction. Either way I support you in your quest for a more educated america.
