Two geniuses are better than one. So five geniuses ...
The high-tech medical whizzes of Pure Genius, premiering Oct. 27 only on CBS, have plenty of company. High-IQ characters have long been staples of TV shows because they're such ... well ... characters. They think fast. They think different. Sometimes, they even think funny.
We bet you have a favorite brainiac. There sure are a lot to choose from. Here we've picked five, culled from four current series—and one science-fiction classic.
