  1. I think they made the right choice. There are only so many times you can have a character like Howard (what he used to be) making the same skeevy jokes and double entedres before he becomes an insufferable caricature of himself.
  2. It's always irked me to see others deem what things are socially immature. One instance that always springs to mind when I think of this subject is an episode of Friends where Ross is offered some chocolate milk and he declines with his reason being that he's an adult. I was like "uh...wtf?". You can't drink chocolate milk anymore because you think it's too childish? That mindset in and of itself is childish. Now I'm aware that it was just an actor reading lines from a script for a television show, but it is still an extension of the kind of thoughts that society has on a variety of things be it a grown man/woman playing video games, watching cartoons, reading comic books, playing with toys/action figures, buying the colorful sugary cereal, etc etc etc. People can and should do whatever makes them feel happy just so long as whatever that is, isn't bothering anyone else to the degree it violates their rights. If anyone has a problem with it, it is they who are being childish and immature.
  3. I can't wait until I get this game. I can't get it just yet because I'm out of money from buying Saints Row the Third (REALLY AWESOME GAME BTW). I've heard that the PS3 version is having some issues with the size of the save file causing some serious lag once you get deep into gameplay, and that is the version I would be getting. Hopefully a patch is released to cause whatever issues they are perceiving by the time I get it.
  4. I would say they don't "see" anything considering they have no basis for sight. They would experience abstract thought, emotions, ideas, sounds and various experiences and scenarios akin to those they have while awake.

    Amy.

    I'm 100% for Amy staying, they need to represent as many different types of females as they can just like they try to do with the guys, showing that not all girls are stereotypically "girly", but come in many social varieties. That's not something they can do with just Penny and Bernadette, who share more similarities than differences.
  6. Looks like I fall into the minority on this one. I actually enjoyed the episode and had no problems with anything that occurred in the episode. I don't see this episode as being anything more than a stepping stone to get Sheldon and Amy "together" in order to set something else up the writers have in mind for the future. We shall see. But I liked it. The only thing I've been having problems with is the new way they've been styling Sheldon's hair, it's been bothering me.
  7. I would like to see some Star Wars guest appearances. They have Star Trek well represented with Levar Burton, Brent Spiner, George Takei and of course Wil Wheaton. But to my recollection I don't believe there have been any Star Wars guest stars. I also want to see more of these character's relatives. Raj still has 4 other sibilings we haven't seen, Leonard and Sheldon both have siblings we haven't seen also. They should probably get Leonard Nimoy on there too, just so we can see Sheldon faint from excitement or something lol.
  8. I really liked when they all chipped in on the time machine. Or when they were fighting over the Lord of the Rings ring. Most recently I loved the Halloween episode with Sheldon trying desperately to get back at everyone for having scared him.
  9. Can't believe that someone wouldn't have known about Mayim Bialik having played Blossom. lol What I did find interesting to learn however was that Mayim has a PhD in neuroscience in real life, just like her character Amy. Found that out right after she first appeared on the show.
  10. I think this image might be appropriate.
  11. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (the original 80s series) The Real Ghostbusters (my favorite, I have the whole series on DVD, woot!) Muppet Babies Eureka's Castle Beavis and Butthead Ren and Stimpy Tales from the Crypt among many others
  12. Yes, you do sound a lot like Sheldon too! Are you into Magic: the Gathering (the show pokes fun of Magic)? Sheldon is very selfish "...and I reject them all...", what are you like? I'm not selfish like Sheldon. And do you ever give a crap what other people think of you? Yes, I like to play Magic, as well as a few other TCGs. I engage in almost every recreational activity that they're shown doing on the show with possibly the only exception being paintball. I'm not really one to enjoy physical activity. But yeah, all the other stuff that they enjoy I do too. And yes I'm selfish like that too. I don't care what others think of me, just like he doesn't. But one of the differences I would say we have is I am able to tell what emotions people are feeling or what the current social situation is. But like Sheldon, I rarely care unless it has to do with me. At least once per episode my wife will give me a look that is taken to mean "see? there you are again." One instance that springs to mind is when Sheldon told Leonard that he's looking forward to watching Battlestar Galactica on DVD... Leonard: Should we have invited her for lunch ? Sheldon: No, we're gonna start season two of Battlestar Galactica. Leonard: We already watched the season two DVDs. Sheldon: Not with commentary. No one in my family/friends circle understands my "need" to view all supplemental material, most importantly the commentary tracks.
  13. I assume it's a simple reference to the fact that sign language plays a large part in this episode. I initially thought that it might have some deeper meaning with reference to something scientific as well, but there might not be anything beyond it's reference to ASL. Some of the other titles aren't that deep either, such as "The Skank Reflex Analysis", no guess work required on that one.
  14. The only part I didn't like in this episode is when Penny deliberately turned her attention away from Leonard to talk to the guy at the other table. Even between two friends who aren't on a date, that's still extremely rude. Had I been there and she did that to me, I honestly would have just left her there. Other than that, the episode was fantastic. LOVED Sheldon's story, and that was a pretty large bird, no wonder Sheldon was frightened at first.
