Movie Scientists Blogathon Day 1 Recap – The Good

19 Feb

Mad scientists get all the press. Everyone loves a good mad scientist. But what about a good good scientist? I think it has been proven conclusively today that good scientists abound in film and are every bit as charismatic, brilliant, romantic, fascinating and fun as their mad counterparts.

Thanks everyone for your incredibly thoughtful, thought-provoking, and scintillating entries!
