It’s a well written piece but honestly it takes the age old cliche path where being intellectual is equalled as nerdy. Being an intellectual does not mean being a complete idiots in social world but being a nerd, I am not sure.
I enjoyed watching Friends but I was able to understand the difference between sitcom and real life. Blaming a sitcom for the downfall of entire civilisation appears super wrong and too much off the point.
For all the Rosses out there ( I don’t believe there are dick heads out there coz that’s what his character projected), yes the world will laugh at your social awkwardness and guess what, that’s how the world runs. It’s not fair and it won’t be.
