Whether it's Sherlock Holmes solving crimes or Sheldon and Leonard
geeking out over sci-fi, geniuses are central figures on many of
television's most popular series. They are often enigmatic,
displaying superhuman intellect while struggling with mundane
aspects of daily life. This collection of new essays explores why
TV geniuses fascinate us and how they shape our perceptions of what
it mean to be highly intelligent. Examining series like Criminal
Minds, The Big Bang Theory, Bones, Elementary, Fringe, House, The
Mentalist, Monk, Sherlock, Leverage and others, scholars from a
variety of disciplines discuss how television both reflects and
informs our cultural understanding of genius.
