Who are the best pop culture scientists? Meaning, the ones that are smart, accurately portrayed, and are not trying to take over the world. Den of Geek ranks twenty of them on intelligence and ethics, plus how they represent real scientists. There are some caveats, because movies and TV differ so much. How do you compare a character on a sitcom who happens to be a scientist to one who saves the world in a film? You may disagree with the results, but it’s nice to take a closer look at the scientist characters they selected and an explanation of why they ranked where they do.
