  1. Could be! I know for the movies there's someone in charge of making sure that anything that happens to clothes and props (dirt, rips, wetness, food spills, etc.) looks the same from take to take or scene to scene. Maybe in this case it would be the director or his assistant since this example depended on Ramona taking the food boxes out of the bag in the same order. On second thought, since the order the boxes were taken out depended on how the boxes were packed in the bag, it was probably the person who prepares the props and who would have re-packed the bag between takes. Does the Grip do this too? It would be interesting to find out. By the way do you know what a "Best Boy" actually does?

  2. Hey,

    when Ramona visits Sheldon bringing Thai-Food the producer made a tiny mistake in the order of what Ramona is putting on the kitchentable. Here are a few screenshots of what i mean. The images are posted in order of appearance in the scene...

    have fun with it :)

    Yep, this happens! Actually, it's not the producer but the person(s) in charge of continuity (exact title?) who's supposed to make sure details like this get duplicated as exactly as possible when they do multiple takes of a scene.

  3. Yes, excellent song! This episode was delightful and besides being very funny, it was nice to see Sheldon actually working on science/physics (I for one would like to see more of that, and of course for Leonard, Howard and Raj too). Leonard's mitosis nightmare was hilarious!

  4. Just got around to watching this episode and I have to say, it was one of the worst of the series, if not, the worst.

    While in the last two episodes, I enjoyed the emphasis on how Sheldon differs from the rest of the group and how the rest of the group is aware of the differences, this episode really sort of segregated him from them and I didn't like it.

    I also fear next weeks episode will only worsen the situation, with it creating another Sheldon vs. Everyone Else scenario. The line in this weeks episode "Well... we liked Leonard" I found was a dangerous one as far as the group dynamic is concerned. In past episodes we saw them all interacting and having fun with eachother, playing Halo/WoW (even though Sheldon betrayed them, it was still a group activity), but now it really seems to be Sheldon vs. The Group. I think they're going down the wrong path with this.

    Does anyone agree?

    The story lines and jokes are becoming less sophisticated and witty and more juvenile which concerns and disappoints me (the previous episode where Sheldon had a cold was practically all snot jokes). What struck me about this episode was that I saw it as possibly a transition for Sheldon where he starts realizing how and how not to interact with people, although we did get a snapshot of how he feels about relationships at the end where he describes human contact as being very undesirable. How did he get to feel this way? Why is his ego so fragile? Will he start changing? I guess we'll just have to wait and see how the writers develop him.

  5. I just want to memorialize the passing of Arthur C. Clark, author of many great science fiction books, including "2001: A Space Odyssey." It's fitting and poignant that last Monday night's episode featured the famous opening music (it's actually the beginning of Richard Strauss' tone poem "Also Sprach Zarathustra") from the movie version of "2001: A Space Odyssey." May exploration, imagination, and the search for knowledge and truth live on!

  6. Kerryl64: I went to see them film this episode, but since I haven't seen the final version I have a question for you. When Sheldon and Penny are walking up the stairs together Sheldon says one of two lines, and I'm wondering if you remember which one they decided on?

    Was it:


    little misunderstanding? Galileo and the Pope had a little misunderstanding!



    little misunderstanding? Misreading my grandmothers living will was a little misunderstanding!

    Personally, I hope they chose the Galileo one. Both made me laugh, but the first one just seems like a joke only this show could get away with. Anyway, do you happen to remember?

    I agree with you; the Galileo line was very funny (and I think funnier than the alternative)! By the way, Sheldon was wearing that green T-shirt again with the interesting graphic. Any chance of anyone knowing or finding out what it means?

  7. Happy holidays everyone! Noticed that no one has yet offered any insight about this T-shirt. To me, it could be an abstract figure (producer? screenwriter?) who is wringing his hands in despair after TriStar pictures turned down his project, which is why his nose is bent out of shape (notice the Dali-esque mustache). Actually, I haven't a clue. Anyone?

  8. Watched this rerun last night - Funny one! Jim Parsons wins the award for Best Fidgiting on a Couch (10 seconds or less category) Favorite two lines out of many (couldn't pick just one. BTW, sorry if I missquote a word or two, I'm doing this from memory): 1. Sheldon (holding Leslie's violin case): He's either in there with Leslie Winkle or a 1930's gangster. 2. Leonard: (referring to Penny saying that Leonard and Leslie would make a cute couple): What do you think she meant by that? Sheldon: She either meant that the two of you would form a couple which others would think of as being cute or that you could manufacture one. OK, a third: Penny: Sheldon, honey, I know you think you're explaining yourself, but you're really not. Best visual: Leslie smashing the banana :icon_lol:

  9. i read the news that on jan 28 there will be a new sitcom replacing TBBT, but if the writers' strike ends before then will cbs start showing TBBT again, starting with the Cooper-Hofstadter Polarization episode?? i miss the show so much!!!! i hope the writers get a fair deal soon (not just so i can see the show, but because they deserve it)

    I just went to CBS.com and sent in a feedback form to please bring the show back if this is the case. If all of the people registered at this site did this, and asked their friends to do it as well, there would be a lot of requests for this show and a greater possibility of CBS bringing the show back! It worked for Star Trek, so Let's do it!:icon_biggrin:

  10. Firstly, I must point out that I have just saw the premier of this clever and side-splitting show and I am very impressed! Instantly became a fan since the whole "stairs" conversation on the first ep! :icon_cheesygrin:

    Anyway, in case my title showed no hint, I am from Australia (on the coast to be a bit more specific). 14 yrs, female and loves music & witty comedy! Erm, not sure what else to say, but it's an honor to join these boards and I'm keen to conversate with you lot sooner or later.. :icon_redface:

    A big Welcome!, and I'm glad to hear that the show went over down under! When I heard the show was premiering there I was hoping it would do well. That "stairs" conversation is a favorite of mine too (among many others)! Forgive me, but I have to ask: is "conversate" an Australian colloquialism or recent slang term? Thanks and it's very nice to have people from other countries here! :)

  11. Sheldon: Do I come into your home and change your boards?

    Leslie: I don't have things written wrong on my boards.

    Sheldon: That's...That's....That's....

    Leslie: If you think up an adjective, text me.

    Leonard: Yea, you saw what you saw, that's how we roll in the Shire!

    Sheldon: You have about as much chance with her as the Hubble Telescope does of finding in the middle of every black hole is a little man holding a flashlight trying to find the circuit breaker.

    From last night's rerun (more in the delivery than the actual words!):

    Leonard: I'm having a panic attack!

    Sheldon: A panic attack? Oh...calm down!:icon_cheesygrin:

  12. What great ratings and now the audience will probably get bored watching episodes they saw 8 weeks ago!

    I understand your concern, but I watched the re-run of the pilot and laughed as hard as I did the first time! I think good writing and good acting stands up to multiple viewings (we all do buy DVD's we watch over and over again, right???). I have confidence that the audience and CBS will not forget about this show! :)
