While I'm no big fan of mainstream television programming in general, I'll say that more shows like "Big Bang Theory" and (now-cancelled) "Numbers" will go a long way toward influencing the next generation of engineers. This TI-Bialik partnership is a smart extension of that. (And all the more impressive because of her UCLA cred!). ; )

Go Mayim (Amy) go! I would have been proud having her (character) as a friend in college:)! The Big Bang Theory was promoting science (and its geeks)to mainstream America in a clever, funny and quite accurate way. No wonder it was cancelled. Look what is out there now? Maybe this is a sad reflection of what mainstream America is heading to? The move of TI is also clever! Two thumbs up for TI!

I don't believe The Big Bang Theory has been cancelled. It remains in the top 10 scripted ratings and is still alive and well as for as I know. Yes, it is surprising though that a cerebral sitcom like this one would not be cancelled by now - Small miracles.

By attracting nerds into the industry, she is doing us all a great service, and I like to think that in a small way we help humanity.

I never watch "Big Bang Theory," I always followed "Numbers," and I'm certainly impressed with Amy's credentials and stamina. Doing a challenging PhD and a TV show simultaneously seems like something approaching superhuman, to me.

Mayim Bialik was a well known and successful child actress staring as somebody called Blossom, amongst other things. She may have taken a few years off to knock out the doctorate in neuroscience before getting some film roles and more television series.

Amy Farrah Fowler is NOT the STEM role model that we want. Not to take anything away from Mayim Bialik and her PhD, for which I greatly respect her, I hope that the GEAR UP program allows kids to see her as a balanced person and decidedly distinct from the one-dimensional stereotype the TV show projects.

"Big Bang Theory" is one of my favourite shows and I love her character in the serial. I was surprised when I read this article because I never thought she is PhD holder. I also want to congratulate TI for starting this initiative. I am sure this initiative will help attract many students towards Science and Maths subjects.
