Hot Nerds on Netflix

We love our Netflix like Lucy loves Ethel. We’ve made lists about documentaries, badass ladies, holiday films, cartoons and made-for-TV-movies related to the non-stop wonder that is Netflix Instant streaming.

There will come a time when everyone and their brother-in-law has a streaming video service, and we may end up paying-per-bandwidth chunk for the luxury, but for now, join with me in celebrating one of the finest lists we’ve ever created.  Hot Nerds on Netflix. Because sometimes it takes a little objectification to get through a Wednesday.

Dr. Charlie Epps (David Krumholtz) on Numbers

Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) on Bones

The Doctor (assorted), Doctor Who

Did someone say Benedict Handsomepants Cumberbatch???


For serious, though, I love this list. About half of them are my favorite characters on my favorite shows. And Gus is totally the best of them all! I don’t know how he puts up with Shawn. I’d lose it in real life.

Gus and Shawn are like True Love Best Friends though! They know each other so well. I like to picture them as two old people who have been married for 60 years. In spite of it all, they still love each other so much. :)

But then, I probably get too involved.
