Pass the Popcorn
Year-end rushing around has left me little time for blogging last night or this morning. But a discussion with a colleague the other day leads me to ask a quick question of the readership: has there ever, in your view, been a realistic depiction of a research chemist in some sort of popular entertainment (TV, movie, reasonably-selling novel)? I'm hard-pressed to think of many examples myself, partly because what we do isn't (a) all that easy to explain in a dramatic setting, and (b) tends to operate with non-dramatic pacing, to put it mildly. But I'd be glad to hear some suggestions. . .
