  1. If you register with the TV channel , Dave, you can watch the series with their on-demand service. I dont know if international restrictions apply to this http://video.uktv.co...es-10/episode-1
  2. Fair point. I retract my comment about a decrease in quality. I should say, rather, that it no longer tickles my funny bone, the more it moves towards being a "Friends" type show; a show I never found funny.
  3. Over here its still going on (1st series) Mr. Gold (Rumpelstiltskin) has just realised yer man is not his son after all. This will make an excellent Xmas pressie for my sister and her daughters.
  4. I've noticed this too. Whenever I've come up with examples of the science/geek oriented themes that are still being touched upon in the show, the response is either silence or arguments which struck me as slightly lame. For example, when I questioned why George Smoot's visit in season 2 qualifies as a science-based plot but Hawking's visit in season 5 doesn't, someone told me it's because the episode depicted nothing but the 'relationship between Sheldon and Hawking', and not any science! I'm still waiting to get this logic.
  5. Caesar's back! May 2014. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Woohoo!
  6. God Help us! More invented crap from those 2, much like the Elrond/Arwen crap in the 2 towers..the drinking contest etc.
  7. Watership Down redemption or overcoming-obatacles films like Good Will Hunting, Sybil, the 3 Roots series, Fried Green Tomatoes,The Colour Purple Schmaltzy stuff like christmas films
  8. What (s)he said! + pimp my garden/house/cooking/business/body/make-up etc.
  9. I only kept stuff I cant get anymore on digital,...like a documentary about "Hollywood and the Holocaust"..an excellent documentary
  10. Great thread idea. Cant think of any though. It would be something schmaltzy, no doubt.
  11. I got into the show due to the nerdiness, and the fact that I love pop-culture references, and probably most importantly...Sheldon's arrogant put-downs. general sarcasm and his character overall. I have always found relationship aspect , dialogue and scenarios to be totally unfunny. After Amy became less like Sheldon and tried to move towards a more normal relationship ,her scenes also became totally unfunny to me. Some people find the relationship between Amy and Sheldon to be funny, but I cannot remember ANY of these scenes where I had a laugh. The same goes for ANY of the other romantic or relationship scenes between ANY of the characters. The only things I found funny were the comments made by others about said relationships like the runniing gags about L/P at the beginning or Sheldons comments to Leonard if Leonard tried to discuss his problems with him. I could put up with relationship scenes in the early days as the relationships were mainly dealt with by cast members talking about the failings of relationships. Once the protagonists actually got together themselves...no laughs....ever...as far as I can remember. And these scenes have become ever more frequent. I predict I will see the plot summary for ep01 of se06, and not bother to watch it, for the first time in years.
  12. Is that Seth Green beside the action figures?
  13. did I post this vid on some othher thread or somewhere else?...I cant remember...anyway...enjoy
  14. preempting TBBT? Stephen Hawking's in my library Fluent in java script as well as Kilingon The only question I thought was hard was "do I like Kirk or do I like Picard?" spend every weekend at the Renaissance fair spend my nights with a roll of bubble wrap... OK, WELL MAYBE not that one...unless you throw a woman into the mix
  15. If your curiosity has been aroused at this stage...here is a link to there own youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/RedDwarfHQ?feature=g-all-u

  17. Will Wheaton only at 34%??? Come on people! I think we need a slogan for Will. Any ideas?
  18. I would just like to point out that it's not the charachters evolving, per se, that I mind. It's more due to the fact that so much ot the writer's effort seems to be focussed on the relationships now to detriment of ...jokes! I have rarely had laughs in the last 2 seasons.I kept watching in the hope the show would become funny again but, for my taste, it hasnt. If you're still laughing, well then , enjoy the show. Other comedies like 3rd rock , the Simpsons didnt evolve characters and just concentrated on jokes right throughout their long runs (okay the Simpsons have run out of gags at this stage but they had a good run). Red dwarf had slight some character evolution , but not at the expense of jokes. Frasier and Only Fools and Horses basically kept the same characters and just changed their romantic circumstances (Niles & Daphne, Del boy & Racquel) but again, not at the expense of the jokes. I said I didnt want to see Sheldon change because he was and is VERY funny as Sheldon 1.0. If I thought he would still be hilarious, I would keep watching but going by the example of how unfunny Howard has become, I doubt it very much. It will, IMHO, be focussed on the emotions rather than the jokes. I found myself trudging through the last 2 series , so I think its time to let go. It would be harder to leave this forum than to leave the show itself
  19. ..so that's something he has in Common with Sheldon. His blog... Will Wheaton & downloading Ubuntu excerpt: So yesterday, I decided that I'd download Ubuntu and put it in a Virtualbox on my iMac, just to see how the distro is doing these days....f I'd downloaded the iso straight from their server, it was going to take the better part of an hour, so I decided to grab the torrent instead. Turns out it was a good choice, because it was finished in about six minutes. ...and also playing a board game about being railroad barons! He really should get together with Sheldon more often. Will Wheaton tabletop : Ticket to Ride
  20. It is not , at the moment, but the last few epidodes have indicated that that's the direction season 6 will travel ...with Sheldon coping with his new-found feelings. Unlike most people here,that's not something I personally feel like watching. Well,you guys have fun next year. This years main theme was Howard/Bernadette rom-com, next year will be Sheldon/Amy
  21. Totally agree. Compare season 1 to season 5. even the dialogue is dumbded down to the norm Errr Hello...Simpsons, Frasier; 2 longest running series.. the characters didnt evolve...their situations may have changed but the characters remained the same throughout. 3rd rock from the sun also springs to mind. Those writers were able to make the comedy stay high class without having to "evolve" the characters. I think we all know that the evolution in this show is to soap up the characters so they will climb the ratings. Bang on. Ta, daaa....yes, that's also why I watch comedy. Unfortunately with TBBT the laughs have become much scarcer due to the time spent on soap-opera plots in the last 2 years. Possibly the best comedy character ever created is slowly being turned into a stock rom-com character. When I saw (or rather read in a taping report) thre last scene in se05 I decided,that was it for me with this show. I am going to leave after the summer break and remember Sheldon as he was rather than continue to watch his decline into comedy mediocrity. I have highlighted the shows I know of and NONE of them show evolution of characher. The characters remained the same throughout the run. The only evolution was within episodes where the characters "learned a lesson" (standard feel-good ploy) but still retained their basic charachteristics throughout the lifetime of the show. Well Frasier lasted 11 years and in my opinion was funny right until the end. Possibly because they werent trying to muck around with the characters....and just wrote jokes!
  22. from the quiz episode Glad you liked that one shelly...it was a great line anyway, to to the others... the so-called Bonus question which is not part of the main quiz is... what EPISODE was First Aired on CBS a couple of days before this thread started. The question was originally posed as a WOW factor but is now rapidly becoming a "how can we get rid of this guy" (i.e. ME) question
  23. Right, I havent got time right now, but Iam going to go back over this thread and use the posts as a poll. I point for every show mentioned in a post. results soon. Inthe meantime... some music
  24. If you want to remember some classicShelodon quotes.. check here
  25. CBS..i.e. "first aired" date
