Re: The Big Bang Theory...

That's a nice anecdote Aoratos. It's always pleasant to find out that an actor/actress who plays a popular character is also nice in real life.

I met John Hannah once and he was very polite and soft-spoken. Totally made my day.

Seconded. Resorting to drama is a plague that hits almost all big series, IMHO.

Re: The Big Bang Theory...

Lots of repeats on at that moment, and they never get old. Especially the one with Raj moving the giant desk into Sheldon's office.

And one of my favourite lines is in this episode:

Leonard and Sheldon are walking towards Sheldon's office. Leonard is telling Sheldon about Howard's trying to get back together with his girlfriend.

Sheldon: One question. Why are you telling me all this?

Leonard: I dunno. Sometimes your movements are so lifelike, I forget you're not a real boy.

Sheldon's face at this is brilliant, and it's just hilarious when Leonard manages to score one off Sheldon. Hahaha.

Re: The Big Bang Theory...

We love this show in my house. Up until recently, it was just my brothers and I who watched it, while my parents were like "what's with this?" then we borrowed seasons 1 & 2 from some friends and now they love it!

Our favorite thing is Sheldon's: "*knock knock* Penny! *knock knock* Penny!"

Re: The Big Bang Theory...

I came across this while looking through geek-art.net.

There's a company on Etsy calle wee little stitches who are making cross stitch patterns of various genre subjects. (I've asked the to make me a Millennium Falcon one. )

Anyway, one of them was the cast of the big bang theory. They're quite cute IMO, kind of 8 Bit.

It's three knocks, I think you'll find!

Gotta get Sheldon's idiosyncrasies just right.

*knock knock* Sheldon!
*knock knock* Penny!
*knock knock* Sheldon!

*knock knock* Penny!
*knock knock* Sheldon!

Re: The Big Bang Theory...

Hehe. One of my favourite scenes is from the app episode, when Sheldon tries bribing Raj and Howard to leave Leonard and join him. He gets Raj a mug with "World's Best Theoretical Physicist" written on it, and Howard one with "Howard Wolowitz".

Sheldon's throwaway lines mocking Howard are excellent. I think it's from the same episode when he says: "Three geniuses, and their friend Howard...."

Re: The Big Bang Theory...

I love this show - yes definitely the best comedy on tv atm. Not that thats terribly hard, there is really nothing else funny about to be honest. Nevertheless BBT is awesome. I just had my twin bro and his wife visit for a week (not seen them for about a year) and they are both huge fans, so they spent the evenings watching my box sets.

My brother made a game of watching for Sheldon mentioning Anthropology or Anthropologists (Because I am one) - I hadn't realised how often that occurs! its there just about every episode.

Re: The Big Bang Theory...

We borrowed season 3 from some friends and I got home from work last night in time to watch the rest of the episode where the apartment got broken into and Sheldon started freaking out.

We were rolling on the floor laughing at the part where Sheldon tripped the security alarm and screaming because of the electrified net. I also watched the episode where he ended up in the ball pit. We laughed like crazy at how fast he was able to move!

Re: The Big Bang Theory...

Was only kidding with the knocks.

And yeah, that episode is pure comedy gold. We in our house simply call the show "Bazinga" now after it.
