Little Creativity, Please?  
I'm a bit done with the smart, nerdy, slightly awkward girl genius charicture, thanks. Not all smart, geeky women have to look and act like Willow (of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame,) thanks. Can we get some new flavor of geeky, competent women, please?

Willow has always struck me as odd for a competent geek woman. She seemed closer at the beginning when it was techno-paganism and her taking over the computer class.

Abby on NCIS does an interesting version of competent (uber) geek woman. But she is still an extreme. The copy they have for Criminal minds is a little better. Not quite so little girlish.

The woman on Eureka were good. I bet they don't stand out as examples of competent geek women because they don't fit the stereotype and are "normal" therefore them being women is forgettable.

I think it will be a little hard to have a geek girl and not have her somewhat socially awkward. While we are moving away from it, for the most part, one had lead to the other.
