  1. Boo-YEAH! That's why 'Sheldon' made the Top 10 best list of Digital Spy's TV characters since 2000.

    I've seen only one episode of "Friends," on a trans-Atlantic flight. I hear it's pretty good.

    Again, not "serious," but a date with a guy having "status." Had she dumped a major league baseball player to be with Leonard, then the "she settled for him" jokes would not work. She would meet such a guy at the cheesecake factory, the gym, whatever. I see all sorts of celebrities [political, news] at a dodgy diner by my house. A sports/news broadcaster. She's always depicted as the sportsfan on the show. Penny is supposed to be the "hot" girl, but she was only shown dating brawny knuckle-draggers. She's cute and funny and would have been able to attract a better class of guy. The exception was seeing that physicist who was a complete cad. Leonard was supposed to be the one who had difficulty with women, yet women threw themselves at him. As depicted on the show, their experiences dating others was the opposite of the premise of the show.

    Not a more "serious" boyfriend, but one with greater status, without Zach's obvious fault. It also would have killed the "she 'settled' for Leonard" meme if she had dated one of the Anaheim Ducks, or Angels before getting back to Leonard. Penny's smart and attractive, she could have dated someone better than Zach.

    Priya was a good character, but, to me, her relationship with Leonard was never plausible, as was his relationship with Stephanie. Stephanie came and went too quickly for me. Again, it's really too bad the writers did not give Penny a "prestigious" partner during their time apart, as they did Leonard. It would have been great - and plausible - to have her dating a professional athlete from one of the area's sports teams. But this show is more male-oriented than female. Zack, ultimately, is not a threat to the guys because of his ignorance and stupidity.
  6. Damn! I hate it when Colonel Potter hogs screen time from Hawkeye and Klinger!

    Really? Networks do these pretty frequently....because the broader viewing audience hate them?

    To appear on the top-rated situation comedy? Yes - a lot of folks would do it for a small fee just for the exposure.

    Feeding male fantasies.

    You'd likely have to pay his estate.
  11. An important source of humor for the show was always their dealing with the 'outside' world of non-physicists, women, university administrators, public officials, etc. Gradually bringing in new characters keeps this theme fresher than it might otherwise have been. Raj's various girlfriends, various relatives and visiting scientists. So, I like the shot in the arm of Amy's parents.

    The peripheral characters on this show are all so good. They could give some of the regulars a week off and have some of the parents - Raj's, Leonard's, Amy's, Bernadett's, Howard's brother, whatever. The parents on the show are really great. Who would have guessed that Amy's parents would be so much fun? I sure wouldn't have done so.

    Tensor, have fun. It's your your bounce house. The show is inconsistent and without the incongruitites they would have no show. But I stand by my comments. They have highly-prized degrees in a geographic environment that competes for folks with such degrees. It's not the University of Minnesota or Dalhousie. I do not appreciate your condescending "here I'll make it easy" tone. I've got FAR bigger fish to fry in real life.

    I would trust him to read it to determine if it was worth a professional translation.
