  1. Set reports are posted by fans who attended the day after each show is taped. That's how I get the titles of the episodes before they're officially announced (http://wiki.the-big-bang-theory.com/index.php/Season_5). I put the titles on the wiki but I don't read the set reports because I much prefer to enjoy the episodes when they're aired. If you don't mind being spoiled, just check out SpoilerTV. They usually post them (although they aren't the source). Steve The Wiki And if you liked the "skank" title, you'll also like the latest episode title from last Tuesday. The show is in a week's shooting hiatus now so the writers can get a little bit further ahead on scripts. The next new episode will be taped September 13, I believe. Steve The Wiki
  2. CBS was going to reveal all the cards at ComicCon, I believe. Anyone seen them all? We've seen about six of them that I am aware of, including the Bunny and the Carrot. Steve The Wiki
  3. For what it's worth ... http://wiki.the-big-bang-theory.com/index.php/Building Steve The Wiki ...and http://wiki.the-big-bang-theory.com/index.php/Mailboxes Steve (who has spent a lot of time working on this question and writing the Wiki entry and is therefore as geeky and OCD as the rest of you!)

  4. There is some evidence that there are three apartments per floor. You can see an additional door on the usually-unseen fourth wall in Bad Fish Paradigm (in the camera view of Penny and Leonard kissing). Also, there are sixteen mailboxes and five floors. Just throwing that out there. Steve The Wiki
  5. Always check our own wiki first http://wiki.the-big-bang-theory.com/index.php/1980 Steve
  6. Well, thank you for the praise! We do the wiki for our own enjoyment, of course, but hearing that people like it makes it all worthwhile. Steve Editor, The Wiki

  8. I see Priya as a story arc, basically. She serves a purpose for the ongoing story. Here's my take: Priya's function is to stir things up. She upsets the equilibrium between Sheldon and Leonard. She brings Penny's insecurities and jealously to the forefront. Along the way, she helps the other three women to honestly bond, which frankly I couldn't imagine happening back when Amy was first introduced. All of these disturbances create the possibilities for great plots for episodes and new twists to the established relationships. We all know that one of the underlying themes of the show has always been the Penny-Leonard relationship (that was clear from the very first episode), and now we have the lovely situation where Penny is chasing Leonard instead of the other way around. Granted, this is still very low key, but it's there ... Penny is now interested in Leonard while he is NOT interested in her (or is he?). Priya will be gone soon enough, I don't doubt, once she's served her purpose in the overall storyline. The seeds of her leaving are already planted in her pressuring Leonard to change his circle of friends, in her disdain for his geekiness, and especially in her refusal to acknowledge him to her parents. In the meantime, I'm enjoying seeing the characters grow, change, revert, flounder, fail, and generally act like, well, characters in a sitcom that has plenty of story yet to tell. A lot of all that bumbling and bullying and carrying-on wouldn't be happening if Priya wasn't around. I mean, seriously, while I loved the first season and especially the second, I wouldn't want the characters to stagnate in that mode forever. I want to see Sheldon and Penny building their strange friendship ("Adhesive Duck" comes to mind). I want to see Howard change while not really changing at all. I love it all, even as I criticize some episodes for being just a lot of "crazy Sheldon" or being too crude in their humor. I'm a huge fan and that won't change as the storylines evolve and as characters come and go to keep things moving ... and interesting. Steve The Wiki
  9. Obsessive? Us? heh heh Have you SEEN our Wiki? Steve
  10. Too much time on our hands? Naw I've been working on the Wiki here on the site for a couple of years. I am always frustrated by the LACK of enough time on my hands. If you check out the season 4 entries, you'll see what I mean. If any of you have the urge to spend a little time playing around in the wonderful world of Leonard, Sheldon, and the gang, feel free to come on by the wiki and help out. There are always SO many details to add, and I'm way behind on adding them. If you don't have the time or the inkling to edit, no problem. But by all means drop in and just read for awhile. I think you'll find the wiki to be a lot of fun to peruse. Steve The wiki

  12. He was a guest star in season 1, actually. Episode 10. http://wiki.the-big-bang-theory.com/index.php/Qualls,_D.J. Steve The Wiki

    I love the character, but I don't love her being in a relationship with Howard. I think his character was more fun when he was "on the prowl" (remember the weird shirt and eyepatch?). I wouldn't have any problem with her staying with the show but I hope she realizes that Howard is definitely NOT someone she wants to be with after his ill-fated attempt to move in with her. Steve The Wiki
  14. He's playing himself. Of course, Wil Wheaton plays "himself", too, and Wil is definitely not evil in real life. So we'll see! Steve The Wiki
  15. I think this episode will win the award for the most guest stars ... Steve The Wiki
  16. I enjoyed this episode, except it was too short for the stories they were trying to tell. We never got closure on either storyline. I agree that the Penny-Sheldon acting lesson thing was poor. It reminded me of the equally-insipid episode where Sheldon was trying to teach Penny about physics. Remember the wonderful scene in Dead H00ker when Penny interrupted Sheldon as he wrote on his invisible whiteboard? Or Sheldon's hilarious attempt to dress Penny after she dislocated her shoulder in Adhesive Duck Deficiency? Let's get back to that dynamic, please! Steve The Wiki
  17. Yeah, that's obviously to allow the camera to see the people in the back seat clearly. I never noticed it before, though! Well spotted. Steve The Wiki
  18. Well, this was fun! Not the best episode of the series by any means, but an enjoyable half hour with some of my favorite people (and one or two of my not-so-favorite ones). Steve The Wiki

    Laugh track?

    No, I don't! I guess sometimes they laugh at things I don't think are particularly funny, but judging by the discussions around here, we all find different things funny in the show. For example, I didn't laugh at all when Sheldon was in the ball pit. I found it massive overacting and contrived. I just shook my head and prayed for it to end. A lot of other people consider that one of the funniest moments in the series! So if you get 200 people watching a live performance, they're going to be laughing at all sorts of things, and not all at the same things at the same time. The fact of the matter is, that's genuine laughter you're hearing. And another fact? I wish so much that I could be there and see a taping live! Steve The Wiki

    Laugh track?

    They definitely DON'T use a laugh track. Everything you hear is genuine, authentic laughter from the live audience. Steve The Wiki
  21. Well, of course she does! She's supposed to, that's her character. I really enjoyed her sparring with Sheldon and kind of wish she'd be back every now and then. Steve The Wiki
  22. The schedule of upcoming episodes is on the main page of the wiki: http://wiki.the-big-bang-theory.com/wiki/Main_Page Hope this helps. Steve The Wiki
  23. That's a closet. You can see them open it and get things out in a number of episodes (first time was when Leonard got a blanket and pillow out for Penny to spend the night on the couch in the first season.) Steve The Wiki
  24. I agree, this was a great episode. Lots of wonderful moments. I thought Penny's sharp comments as she pointed out that they were bullying Zach was excellent. As they poked fun of him, I found myself laughing but feeling uncomfortable at the same time. I also liked Zach's hesitation about walking away from the people vandalizing that car. I wish the others would have seen it and realized that there may be a little more to him than they assume. I have to admit that another high point for me was NOT having to watch the ickiness of Amy/Sheldon. Please don't let her come back. Steve The Wiki
  25. I don't know if this actually means anything, but IMDb lists her name as Penelope "Penny" Queen in the listing for episode 4.23. Of course, there IS no episode 4.23, so this is more than likely a place filler. But it's interesting, nevertheless. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1632239/ Steve The Wiki
