PhD Comics – the movie

Outdoor screening featuring the skyline of Montreal

Last week we had the screening of the movie PhD Comics at McGill University. For those of you not familiar with the characters, it is based on the comics of the same name created by Jorge Cham, himself a PhD from Stanford University.

It is not difficult to think of ourselves in their situation, sometimes relating to our interactions with grad students or our advisors, sometimes with the crazy things we do ourselves. Like this one, for example:

Admit it: this went through your head at least once...

Unfortunately the movie is not yet available on DVD or streaming, so for those of you who missed it you’ll have to wait a while. Meanwhile, here is the trailer:
