一屋兩 Nerds 笑呵呵

自從見過我和幾個較熟絡的同事討論問題(主要是在家裏搞的哲學討論會和電影晚會),兒子便戲稱我們為 “old nerds” ;他這樣說全無不敬之意,只是覺得我們的話題、用語、甚至笑話,大都與學術有關,好像很高深的,不是一般人能明白。

我小時候絕不是個 nerd,可是越老越 nerdy,現在的確是個 old nerd 了。兒子也被一些同學視為 nerd,我們一屋兩 nerds,本來只是各自各精彩,喜好的東西並不相同,不過,這個情況最近因為一套電視處境喜劇而改變了。

兒子一向愛看 The Big Bang Theory,起初只是在網上看,後來我見他這麼喜歡,便買了第一和第二個 seasons  DVD 給他,現在已買到第五個 season 了,但我一直都沒有看,一來沒時間,二來是估計這樣的電視喜劇不會合我的口味。

大約一個月前,我不知怎的忽然好奇起來,有一天沒那麼忙,便看了 The Big Bang Theory 第一個 season 的頭兩集;誰知一看便喜歡,以後一有空便看它一兩集,在電腦看,戴上耳機,看到好笑的地方便大笑起來,老婆間中經過聽到我的笑聲,起初不知我在看甚麼,便說我「神經病」!兒子知道我也愛上 The Big Bang Theory 後,開心到不得了,好像突然和我親近了不少;早兩天我們用投影機在大螢幕上一起一口氣看了五集,笑聲不絕,兒子是重看,但仍頻呼過癮,兩父子一起大笑,笑得特別開心。

這套處境喜劇講的是四個 nerds 和一個鄰家女孩的趣事,從未看過的讀者,只要看看以下片段,便應該大概知道此劇是否合你口味了:  Sheldon tries to teach Penny a “little” physics.

  1. I love TBBT! Wanna share one of my favourite segment with you:

    http://boundaryinterfaces.wordpress.com/2012/04/10/who-doesnt-want-children/

    It was particular hilarious towards the end!

    BTW, I also posses some of the TBBT t-shirts and those that Sheldon wore in the show. Does your kid have those too! If so, he must be a true TBBT fan!

    1. My son does not have the t-shirts. It looks like you are a bigger fan than he is!

  2. The Big Bang Theory我也看過,但處境劇來說,我喜歡30 Rock這類多些。可能我不夠你們父子倆那麼nerdy (閃)

    2. 唔好屈我﹐呢套劇我無咩點睇過﹐完全無搭嘴
      我家陣追緊Broadway Empire第三季
      我估呢類黑幫片﹐唔多適合你地睇(笑)

    3. A politician and a crook rolled into one, Steve Buscemi is awesome in Boardwalk Empire. Nice casting choice.

      "我估呢類黑幫片﹐唔多適合你地睇" You'd assume 文少? haha

    4. "A politician and a crook rolled into one"--薄熙來,王立軍...可能還有很多很多這樣的“官員”,有權力無限大的政黨做什麼都容易。

      個你地係指哲人王兩父子嘛﹖
      你知啦﹐套片好多埋牙片段﹐仲有亂倫情節﹐真係唔係好適合小朋友睇。(真)
      又其實﹐Steve Buscemi係做得好正﹐但個樣就一D都唔似歷史上的Enoch Johnson﹐唔信你可以睇睇。

      "套片好多埋牙片段﹐仲有亂倫情節﹐真係唔係好適合小朋友睇。" Hey Prof. W and Jr. love "The Flight Club" and the Prof. also mentioned somewhere he watched a French movie which contains oral sex, so I'd think their interest is rather wide. heh heh.

      "Steve Buscemi係做得好正﹐但個樣就一D都唔似歷史上的Enoch Johnson" I read somewhere that Buscemi deliberately stay away from acting like the historic source character. there's always a sinister edge to Buscemi anyway. The thing is, I do not think Jason Alexander will be a good guy to play the character eventho he looks a bit like E, Johnson. hahaha!

      嗯﹐我只係比面哲人王﹐查實係人都知佢重口味(爆)
      唔玩﹐我只係認為哲人王無興趣睇黑幫片。

      你講起Jason Alexander﹐個樣直頭餅印一樣(笑)

      講起呢套片﹐查實我覺得做得最好反而係扮佢老婆的Kelly Macdonald。

      又﹐我時常認為Steve Buscemi好適合拍添布頓D片﹐同埋佢扮疆屍真係唔洗化妝~~(爆)

  4. Shelton木口木臉,處事呆板,一成不變,如果那樣才算是nerd的話,相信你兩父子離nerd的「標準」還有相當距離吧...

    1. Nerd 有程度之分, Sheldon 是 nerds 中極品,我父子倆當然不及。

  5. 哈哈, TBBT我一睇就鍾意。後來導內仔睇嗰陣,開頭佢都唔喺好明佢哋噏乜。我就要pause咗佢講吓啲QM嘅得意實驗,好似two slits experiment同schrodinger's cat咁。其實都唔知佢明唔明,不過竟然佢又鍾意咗套劇,咁就可以一齊睇一齊笑。

    1. Have you heard something like this: if you think you understand QM you don't really understand QM? --zpdrmn

  6. UPDATE: People’s Daily took the page down, however, they had no idea that once it's published online, it will last "almost" forever.

  8. Speaking about Sheldon and nerdom:

    Jim Parsons was on Leno's Monday show, he appears to either channeling Sheldon or he's really a nerd. Take a look [here].
