11 TV Scientists We Love!


Amy Farrah Fowler, (Mayim Bialik ) The Big Bang Theory

Dialogue Sample: “You're not the first girls I thought were friends with me who ended up shunning me. It's like elementary school, junior high, high school, undergrad, grad school and that semester abroad in Norway all over again.”

Made the List Because: When she entered the picture, scenes with science on the show got fun and crazy again. While Sheldon and posse tend to talk more about science, the ladies of Big Bang tend to actually work in their respective scientific fields. Granted, Amy’s experiments run from crazy, like the time she trained a capuchin monkey to smoke cigarettes for a nicotine study, to hilarious, like when she and Sheldon told the gang they hooked up to study the effects of gossip. But if we wanted something done in the lab, we’d go to her before anyone else.
