  1. It's lame that people keep writing things essentially saying: "the point of the show is that it's supposed to be funny, not to be realistic, not to provide role models, and not to do anything to help improve society or people's attitudes or behaviors." All those things can be done at the same time. Why not do it?
  2. I think Sheldon might prefer promoting eugenics, sterilization, social engineering, and/or voluntary euthanasia, rather than participating in any of the volunteer opportunities I previously mentioned.
  3. There is a hilarious episode of Frasier where he volunteers for Habitat for Humanity. He boasts about his minor contributions and then tries to decorate the house to his liking. He ends up driving the home owners crazy. I can imagine thousands of humorous scenarios involving TBBT characters and volunteering. Volunteering isn't some obscure, random thing that I want included in TBBT. It's a very common occurrence and it could make the involved character(s) somewhat more likable and admirable. For all 7 seasons they have all been slightly too self-centered and petty. Helping other people learn English is charitable
  4. 3ku11: In case you'd like to improve your English, here's a tip: stop putting apostrophes in almost every word that ends in the letter "s". Apostrophes are for contractions (it's = it is, don't = do not, you're = you are) and some possessive words (Howard's mother). I'm not saying my English is perfect, but it's better than yours
  5. I didn't specifically give a reason as to why I don't admire any of the main characters. Here are a few reasons now: they are all consistently portrayed as self-centered, materialistic, shallow, and petty. But yes, they are funny. And some of their flaws contribute to the humor in the show.
  6. I can imagine thousands of hilarious scenarios involving TBBT characters and volunteering gone awry. Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, Raj, Amy, Bernadette, and/or Penny should be shown volunteering somewhere. At least 1 out of 7 people I know in real life volunteer 4 or more hours per month at a hospital, hospice, food bank, Habitat for Humanity, Peace Corps, Big Brothers Big Sisters, or somewhere. I'd expect to see at least 1 out of the 7 main characters in TBBT do some volunteering. [edit Oct28: The question/topic is flawed. Bernadette has mentioned volunteering, but we haven't actually seen it in an episode] [edit Oct28: Sursonica reminded us that Bernadette has mentioned volunteering (Season 5, Episode 11, The Speckerman Recurrence). I had forgotten about that. In the middle of the episode Bernadette says, "Every other week I serve at a soup kitchen downtown". At the very end of the episode, Bernadette steals a pair of boots from a charity clothing bin and yells to Penny and Amy: "It's ok. I serve soup to poor people!"]
  7. Since Bernadette has said she doesn't want children and Howard has said he does, he should volunteer for Big Brothers Big Sisters (or something to spend time with a child and be a mentor). It would be funny to see Howard bring a little boy to do something fun, and for Sheldon or Bernadette to ruin it somehow. Sheldon should use IVF (in-vitro fertilization) and a surrogate mother to create a son for him to raise alone (or possibly with Amy).
  8. -I want Leonard to move in with Penny and for Penny to get pregnant. -Amy should move in with Sheldon, but sleep in a separate bedroom (such as Leonard's former bedroom). Leonard and Sheldon should still commute to work together. -Howard should start volunteering as a "Big Brother" for Big Brothers Big Sisters since Bernadette doesn't want children.
