Geek Roundup: Your Favorite Fictional Geeks

Last week I asked you to share your favorite fictional geeks after I admitted my love for hobbits and the boys from HBO's Flight of The Conchords. Most of you ended up leaving your answers in the comments section of that story, revealing your love for Seth Cohen on "The OC," Bill from "Freaks and Geeks" (such a good choice daizyk70!) and of course, Hiro from "Heroes."

As for those of you who bookmarked your choices, the range is pretty exciting and hilarious. 7bits expressed his secret crush on Erin the Esurance girl, partysugar proved her love for the glamorous Hermione Granger and tdamji shared her love for the fabulously geeky Nancy Drew.

"Nancy Drew is the coolest!" says tdamji. "She solves mysteries that grown men can't, while looking totally snappy in her 1950s wardrobe (even in the new movie!), using her great geeky gadgets and never losing her cool." Touché!

Check out a roundup of your favorite fictional geeks in the widget below.

That picture is Nancy Drew in a snappy 1930's wardrobe, not 1950's. But close enough. I love her.

I just thought of another geek I like... The physics professor on Numbers. Same with the math prof actually. But I like the physics prof a little better. he's a little quirkier. And a bit more science-y which appeals to my science nerd side.

Oh my god....The Nancy Drew just reminded me of back when I read all 53 of her first original books + about 100 more...I LOVED Nancy Drew. It just made me so happy to see that book cover!!! :D Though I have to say, I like Hiro from Heroes, gotta love the Geeks from "Freaks and Geeks" - classic, and of course Hermione Granger.
