One of the new fall series premiering on CBS is "Threshold". I wouldn't comment on it except for this (referring to one member of an alien pursuing team):
The most fractious of all is Arthur Ramsey (Peter Dinklage), a dwarf with a penchant for strip clubs who is a brilliant mathematician and linguistics expert. "If our E.T. tries to phone home," Molly tells Cavennaugh, "he'll translate the call for us."
Hmm... In any case, other disciplines have been equally abused:
  • Dr. Nigel Fenway (Brent Spiner), a former 1960's radical and embittered NASA microbiologist.
  • Lucas Pegg (Rob Benedict), a meek, somewhat nerdy physicist who reads First Corinthians on his BlackBerry.
