  1. I'm sorry for my english but, what is the meaning of "negs"? People with negative comments/attitude (no link whatsoever with the N word)
  2. Nice episode. I won't go as far as to say it was great (unlike the previous one). I loved the 2 nerds + 1 nerdette combo scene at the movies. The sour patch joke toped it all. But all in all I feel a tid bit unsatisfied, although I think the development around Penny's addiction to alcohol was really relevant and funny. I would have loved to see a more cunning and motivated Stuart (like that one episode when he hit on Penny). Great lines on the Nerdxploitation jokes at the beginning. This is oh so true... I hear you. I felt the same at first. But, you've got slightly confused b/c she doe
  3. Careful, they might come here and read you Couldn't care less. In fact, I dare them to do it. (but I wasn't talking about the ones you have in mind - those are Belgians, I was only bashing the French for I am one) I "defected" when they started to defecate. Anyways, I'm gonna settle this once and for all.
  4. @SD70Ace, I hear you and somehow couldn't agree more. Still, if it's too obscure and watchers can't relate or know someone who relates to the game, it's a miss. This is the big deal with shows like TBBT : make them too nerdy and they're cancelled. Make them not nerdy at all and they lose their shticks. It's quite a tough job for writers to keep it all balanced. I hate the "halo 3 night" (which they're not abiding to any longer btw) especially when they put it right when the game was out. It just doesn't add up with the kinda nerds they are (esp. sheldon). The only geeks who use consoles
  5. This is a weird kind of debate. Why pick if you can have both ? 90% of the shows I watch are american, 5% french and 5% british. I think whether you like Brit shows or not depends mostly on - which side of the pond you live (americans tend to like brit shows for the awesomeness of the accents ) - the kind of humor that suits you (the most famous trait of brit humor being absurdness - celebrated by the Monty Pythons) I don't like most of the brit comedies for they usually feel unachieved and shallow. But a few of them are terrific. Like "Black Adder", "fawlty towers", "Monty Pyhton
  6. Can hardly wait for this episode. If the pun in the title is right, does it suggest his fear of birds will spread out to other characters ? If so, that might wind up really funny. My wife is scared of pigeons only esp. when they fly by. But I used to know someone who couldn't get closer than 10 feet to any kind of bird. How bugging is that ?
  7. welcome onboard.The French suck major A anyways (or so I've heard )
  8. That's the reason why Howard's question to Sheldon ("so, how does it feel to be beaten up by a girl ?") was actually funny. It could be interpreted either as oblivious arrogance or compassion. So far Penny's only punched the jerks. I'm not seeing Penny punch Lenny or Raj unless of course the writers decide to let in some sorta slapstick humor (like the bitchslap countdown in How I met Your Mother)
  9. oh the first jewelry and it comes from a garage sale and she doesn't even get to keep it :D That was a really good line. By the way, although this line made me crack up with its harshness : I have a twin sister whose assaults began in utero. If only I'd had the presence of mind to reabsorb her, then I'd have a mole with hair in it instead of a tedious yearly Christmas letter. I don't understand how a double phD may think that with non identical /dizygotic twins (the case here since there's a girl and a boy) reabsorption could be possible (I think that what he means by reabsorbing her is th
  10. I wouldn't take Penny's coment as anything either way. It's done purely for humor. Yeah I second that. Penny's mostly ranting and raving and threatening to do things she won't do so she can let some steam off, just like we all do now and then. Also, since nobody mentionned this, this is one of the rare episodes where there's only one story. Usually, you have what I call the classic sitcom recipee with 2 little stories taking place at the same time. This is a known trick to make the show more "complete", so that when you remember it, there seems to be some action. Here, it's only one sto
  11. Native with a good mix of valley girl (which is totally socal) : like ever. Totally. btw I got the obvious star wars, "I'm so excited" and Jeopardy references but not the two others (before the buzz). One is three notes from like a cops movie or something after Sheldon asks why the fine with a picture of Penny's plate would end up in his mailbox and the other one when Sheldon says "I'm not guilty" and Howard says "you *are* guilty". Any clues ? It rings a bell but still can't get a hold on it. Is it me or it read "JUCY" (am I getting blind ?) yeah that's not even really coher
  12. I think deelink was being sarcastic
  13. Have to side with tripper on this one, although NBC's the sing-off was a direct competitor to BBT last monday. Admitting it is the plot would mean that previous episodes were lousy. Which is not the case.

    Microwaves don't change the integrity of the molecules. Water molecules are excited by a resonance effect and give off the extra energy through heat. Heat itself can change the integrity of the molecules. But neither more nor less than a regular oven. The main difference is you can't heat up something that doesn't contain water and stuff that contains water will heat up uniformly, unlike a regular over where the outter layers will get cooked first. My 2 cents
  15. another Cameo for "Winnie Cooper" after HIMYM ! Can't wait. Also, the debate over psychics...the continuation of episode 1x1 (or 2) with Sheldon's comment about astrology... wow, I'm over-excited already. Need to chill out.
  16. For playing their own character : Nimoy would be an obvious choice but only playing himself (unlike Fringe). Stan Lee Stephen Hawking For any fictionnal character : Bryan Cranston, Stephen Colbert or Corin Nemec I'd love to see them but they may have too much charisma. I couldn't agree more
  17. Kuddos to you. That's a nice one. That sums up what a truckload of fans think
  18. Just to clear out some stuff : In episode 3x11, when Beverly tells penny she's been responsible for her own orgasmes since 1982, Penny's reply is "yikes". Then Beverly tells her that "yikes" is what she's saying during orgasms. How do you interpret this last yikes ? (even if you're not american) Feel free to word your opinion by stating where you're from.
  19. One more scientist. I'm an IT grad engineer working for the european rocket industry. Fascinating job.
  20. I hear ya and I for sure would like more subtle nerdy humor and scenes too but I think we really have to give props to the writers for they also have to get a bigger audience (heck that's why they're paid for) which means they have to keep their stories and lines the least obfuscated possible. They're prolly torn between having nice subtle nerdy lines and the ratings CBS wants. I don't think it's a question of language. IMHO, it's more like he's way to shy to communicate, even with sign language. I'm rather sorry he and howard somewhat had hardly any line in this one. I'm still waiting
  21. The nebula behind is the helix nebula (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helix_nebula) famous for the fact it really comes off as an eye
  22. ... this street (came across this while wandering in Enicinitas, CA. Sheldon's attraction to anything vulcan jumped to my mind right away)
  23. yeah this is a continuity goof that can sometimes be fixed at editing. But sometimes they just can't. I didn't spot it in the first place. I'm glad to see some people like to do a thorough check of every detail. I'm impressed. I wish I could do the same.
  24. Can't believe they got rid of the refreshing "worst week". Accidentally on purpose looks dull.

    thank you ! I actually was focussing too much on the Harlem Globetrotters to joint the dots... dammit I'm stupid.
