  1. I don't know anything about the cars and actually I'm not very much interested in them, but I like watching Top Gear because I enjoy listeing to the british accent of the presenters. :D

    And they have funny ideas, like when they played soccer with cars or tried to build floating cars...

    Or try to get each other killed in Florida by writing "Go Hillary Clinton" and "Man Love" on the other's cars. :icon_eek: Dumb idea. Such a dumb idea. :S

    Mmmmmm....British accents. That's one of the reasons I watch it too. I could listen to Britsh accents 24/7. One of the reasons I want to move to the London area at some point. That and I want to get a British accent of my own. :D

  2. Yeah that's right. I've even stubled over Sheldon/Leonard smut fics... they were kind of irritating, because it never occured to me, that someone could see a conection like that between the two characters...

    Oh, yeah. I've come across those slash fics too. :( Makes me sad because it felt like fans were just creating a slash couple just for the hell of it not because they either wanted them together or felt like there was something there. Just making up slash couples for the hell of it annoys me. :|

    Maybe that's another thing to aks the chrarcters, though they kind of answered to that with their behaviour about "the night the heat went out." :D

    LOL I loved how Raj was totally okay with it. He even remembered it fondly ("Well, we'll always have the night the heat went out." *hopeful grin*). He looked so disappointed and sad when the other two just looked at him. *pats Raj on the head* We could ask why the heat went out that night. Maybe Raj secretly sabotaged it. :p Or maybe it was just a plan to kill Sheldon that backfired.

    So basically people are voting to keep their favourite characters or episodes etc alive and to kill off their least favourite?

    Yep. Pretty much. :)

  6. I didn't see this game listed already. This is something I participated in over on the Gilmore Girls forums on Television Without Pity. I thought it was blast! Hopefully, you'll guys will think it's fun too. :)

    Rules:

    *A list of characters (or later on episodes, items, secondary characters, etc.) are presented and each character starts out with 15 points.

    *Each person can add one point (+) to two characters and remove 2 points (--) from one character.

    *You don't have to list reasons unless you want to.

    *If your -- knocks a character below zero points, you get to come up with how they died. :D (That was the really fun part from TWoP) The more clever and/or ridiculous, the better!

    In each post, first list the three characters you're giving/removing points from with + or -- to indicate which you're doing. Then copy and past the complete list of characters and point totals. Update the list with your choices. If there are people dead, list the departed at the bottom with how they died next to each name. You can see examples of this here. Unfortunately, they've deleted the Gilmore Girls forums. :( The Pushing Daisies example is using slightly different rules, and they weren't coming up with how the character or episode died, but the basic idea is still clear.

    Ask if you have any questions! Game starts in the next post. :)

    Edit OH! And you can only respond once per calendar day. That isn't once ever 24 hours, so if you post at 11:59 pm on the 1st, you can post 12:01 am on the 2nd.

  7. I adore this show! Ironically I started watching it only because it came on ABC Family before Grounded for Life. Then in college I went to dinner every night when Grounded for Life came on, but I would still turn on ABC Family before dinner. Eventually I realized I liked 8 Simple Rules better than Grounded for Life. It was better with the dad, but I still enjoy seasons 2 and 3. :) CJ and the grandpa are hilarious! And Rory astounds me. Little brothers definitely tattle on their older siblings, but Rory will go out of his way to learn dirt on Bridget and Kerry. He hid in the laundry hamper in the basement in one episode! lol

  8. Target had a 2 DVD pack with the first two seasons for 20 bucks so I bought it. :D I went through both sets in a little over a week. I remembered why I loved the show so much!

  9. Oh, I'm not sure it's the BEST show in Britain. There's Doctor Who to compete with. ;) But Top Gear is pretty brilliant! I don't know anything about cars or really care to learn about cars, but the show is just too hilarious not to watch! :D They air it in the States on BBC America. I just wish my school would add BBC America to it's cable package. :(

  10. That's something I've been asking myself too (is it strange to think about the sex life of fictional chracters?)... I really can't imagine he's a - what is his age? I'd prpbably ask him that too - well, a virgin at his age, but then again... I also can't image Sheldon hooking up with someone.

    I know! Me neither. :| And no it's not weird to wonder about the sex life of fictional characters. ;) Well not weird in that you're not the only one. Have you seen fan fic? There's a lot of smut fic out there. Maybe not for Big Bang Theory, but I know there's a copious amount of smut fic for the Doctor/Rose ship from Doctor Who. :D

  11. I got the Season 8 DVD last week and there is a great audio commentary with Kaley Cuoco, and executive producer Brad Kern & director James Conway - it was very funny and there was some interesting behind the scenes information given aswell.

    I wasn't that interested in buying the set, as I thought after Season 5, the show went down hill, but the commentary with Kaley and special features in general made me want it more, so I did.

    Now I've just got to decide wether to buy Season 6 & 7 or live with a gaping hole in my set :icon_cry:

    Really? I'll have to get a hold of the DVDs then. I too thought it went downhill after season 5. I got fed up and stopped watching after season 6 so I didn't know Kaley was in season 8 until after Big Bang Theory. I've tracked down the episodes and watched them already, but I didn't know about the DVD commentary. That's exciting!

  12. Opposite actually. I'm going back and watching Roseanne because of The Big Bang Theory. :D Roseanne is why I love Leslie and Sheldon's mom so much, but I didn't see much of Roseanne. I was pretty young when it was on so I didn't remember Johnny from the bits and pieces I saw. I actually didn't remember Leslie Metcalf at first. I just thought she was familiar. It's really fun to watch David and Darlene's first kiss and then watching the 'experiment' kiss between Leonard and Leslie. I found both on youtube one day, and just kept flipping back and forth between them. lol I was so amused. :)

  13. Yes! 8 Simple Rules is why I watch The Big Bang Theory! I probably would have gotten around to watching it eventually anyway (my parents wouldn't have given me a choice :p ), but knowing (and loving) Kaley Cuoco from 8 Simple Rules is why I was immediately in love with the show. :D Side note: Charmed is NOT the reason I watched The Big Bang Theory. I stopped watching after season 6 so I didn't pay much attention to Kaley in season 8. I knew they brought in a new witch which irritated me, but never really saw a full episode. When season 1 was airing, my mom kept telling me to check it out. "It's got the girl from Charmed! You know the new witch from the last season." 0_o I didn't make the connection between Charmed and 8 Simple Rules until I actually saw The Big Bang Theory on screen. It was the ice cream scene from The Tangerine Factor. I was so excited. I yelled "It's the girl from 8 Simple Rules!" and immediately joined my parents in watching the rest of the episode. :D

  14. Oooo, this is a hard question! I guess Kaley Cuoco because she is the reason I actually sat down and watched the show. My parents tried for a year to watch it saying how funny and nerdy it was, but I just didn't bother watching it until I saw Kaley was in it.

  15. On the risk of it being illegal to say this here :S I rip all the episodes from my DVDs and then convert clips to something I can edit with. For the current season, I obtain the episodes through (removed) and then convert clips from those. :) I like getting the HD copies of the episodes and converting them with Avidemux. They're so much prettier than the xvid files!

  16. Haha! yeah, I noticed that ice cream bit. There's a lot of other little things like that in the show. Clothes get folded twice. French toast has more batter on it in the next take. Stuff like that. :) And the time traveling error drives me crazy every time I see the episode!!! I'm always shouting at the screen: "That's a paradox!! You can't do that!! Reapers will eat you!" lol I watch too much Doctor Who. :p I yelled at The Lakehouse for the same reason.

  17. Haven't really read the entire thread (just first and last pages), so forgive me if I state/question something that has already been said. I am most definitely a Penny/Leonard shipper. They're just so adorable!! And Leonard's been through so much that I just really want him to get the girl! *squishes Leonard* I do think it would be fascinating and incredibly hilarious seeing Sheldon with a girlfriend or just actually LIKING someone, but I do not see him being with Penny. Not for real anyway. I'm not sure if we'll ever see Sheldon actually with a girlfriend. We may just always get instances like in Cooper-Nowitzki Theorem, but never a real, romantic girlfriend. I think if the writers slowly progressed Sheldon's character we could see him realistically in a romantic relationship, but that is several years down the line. Now while I cannot see how anyone can ship Penny and Sheldon for real, I can totally see how someone can crack ship them. The two are complete opposites, the actors have chemistry, and it would be a riot (it really would). I just don't ever want to see it in the show (unless it's the nightmare situation Kaley once mentioned in an interview). Personally, for my crack ship, I prefer Sheldon/Leslie because of the pure hatred that exists between them. Penny/Sheldon fanfic and vids frighten me because I don't know who's taking it seriously and who's treating it as crack. I ran into problems in the Doctor/Donna community (Doctor Who) over that. At first everyone seemed to treat it like crack and it was hilarious! Then some people started taking too seriously in the fics and I ran scared. :| One thing I would love to see, though, especially for those who really do want to see them together in the show: I would love to see a proper, full-on AU, fan vid for Penny/Sheldon. Tons of other shows use outside footage, masking, and other manipulations to portray a non-canon couple or situation, and yet I haven't seen any of that in Big Bang Theory. The biggest manipulation I've seen in BBT vids is the vidder zoomed in to crop Leonard out. 0_0 In the Doctor Who fandom, there are Human!Doctor/Rose vids that are incredibly believable and yet don't use any Doctor Who footage. I would love to see a Penny/Sheldon video that is so convincing that at the end I'm almost shipping them. :) Any fan vidders out there? Sorry for the long post!
