  1. Yep I agree. 2 totally different shows from 2 totally different time periods. All In The Family did have more national exposure though. I would have said more world wide exposure but since there wasn't the kind of international social network communication as there is today it's exposure was limited. Words like stifle yourself and meathead became common household terms for a long time and still exist today.
  2. Thank you for the response C-Trane. Your comment is exactly what I was looking for. You expressed your opinion on what you didn't like about the episode, I have always been a Lenny fan from the beginning also and I was a quite disappointed in of her actions with the jock looking science guy also, but it did present some awkward but funny scenes to my taste. also I was at first disappointed in the insulting gift she gave him on motorcycle lessons. I kind of realized and take it as though she didn't go out of her way for either Sheldon or Leonard. for their gifts basically because she was poor and really wasn't as evolved in her relationship with Leonard at the time as she is now.. The Spock autograph just happened to work well with the timing of her being in the right place at the right time. The Sheldon reaction after receiving the gift was the prize winner for me that made the episode a classic in my opinion. Bye the way when I do rate a show as excellent I use a chart of numerical value on a scale from 1-100 and excellent falling between 90-100. With that being said, The Bath Item episode I would rate somewhere in the low 90's.
  3. I have mentioned this scenario before on IMDB after reading various movie reviews. I have noticed that no matter how good or bad a show is there is always someone who is going to say it's the best film ever or the worst film ever. When I came to this thread last night my intention was to vote excellent before reading any of the comments. Of course the voting wasn't posted yet and I just submitted that vote today. it always shocks me to see when some are displeased with an episode, but I understand everyone has there own opinions and reasons for their rating. I bet you could take every single Big Bang Theory episode and not come up with a single one that every fan agrees on voting it very good to excellent. I will list 2 very popular episodes for instance just to see if there is at least one person who didn't care for the episode. We are only talking Big Bang Theory Fans here now, which I would assume we all are. Myself, as a fan have never rated an episode less than good. Maybe there were several Okays but never a bad. 1. The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis: From Season 2 My Rating: Excellent 2. The Bakersfield Expedition: From season 6 My Rating: Excellent
  4. WOW! I don't know how to start out in what to say. First of all i'll say that this was a well rounded episode. It stuck to one main plot and it equally had the whole group involved. Just like Nina said a couple of post earlier,. It makes you both laugh and cry. I thought it was awesome how Sheldon actually did agree to straighten out the closet during the party, and also follows up saying great party. Bernie and Howard have such a smooth relationship. When ever they start to have a little squabble that you think might develop into an argument, they both have a way of quickly putting out the fire. Speaking of fire at first I was hoping that Howard would extinguish the fire he set to the letter, but I momentarily forgot or didn't know that Sheldon read the whole letter. The reciting of the probable content of the letter was brilliant! Sheldon's scientific method of exposing the contents blew me away. I have to re-watch to actually catch every scientific word he mentioned there. I'm sure I have to Google most of them terms also.
  5. I was just thinking exactly the same thing right before reading your post. Also, a Big Beatles Fan here.
  6. The DNA discovery is what makes me curious. Was it really first discovered in modern times? The spiral symbol that represents DNA intrigues me because it has been around for many centuries. Was there an ancient civilization that had already knew about it?
  7. Oh well, so much for the never ending discussion of the Bible. Getting back to the 14 million year topic, although I'm pretty sure it is "billion" that is sang, I think it would have been a cool idea if they did use million for the song. The 6,000 year Creation Theory is way to small and the 14 billion year Evolution Theory seems way big, (Although deep space exploration puts it at around that figure, providing the measurement systems used are accurate) I think it would be a comfortable medium to use a 14 million year theory.
  8. That drives me up a wall when I see them all playing with their food like that. It also makes me hungry and want to order out for Chinese food.
  9. Although it wasn't as dynamic as most of the previous episodes this season, I liked it, mainly for the fact of the possible major breakthroughs with Penny's acting career and Raj getting a girlfriend. .Sheldon and Penny did provide some decent comic relief with the FWF scene and most especially the no knock knocking scene. I really do hope that the Raj & Lucy hook up will last at least somewhat longer then his usual failures. It seems as though it will because she has already appeared in 2 episodes and most certainly will be in a 3rd. That's longer then any other female that came into his life had lasted,LOL. Lucy seems like a really off the wall unique character. There is something about her, I don't know, that I really like. I am really happy for and proud of Penny for her acting performance. Okay, even though I'm not much of a theatrical play person, I do realize that her performance wasn't realistically as spectacular as the gang made her out to be, but I am willing to bypass all that. It could be a matter of several reasons. Maybe Kaley Cuoco isn't really cut out to be a great theatrical actress as much as she is a sitcom actress, or maybe it was that she was just too much in character as Penny. I am letting my imagination run wild here. What if Penny's acting career really starts to take off? Maybe they will land her a role in a sitcom as a blonde from Nebraska who moves to California to try and become an actor, and moves in next store to a couple of nerds. Whoa! Major paradox, LOL. What would really be funny is if she gets a part in a sitcom as a nerdy girl living next door to 2 cool dudes also played by Jim Parsons and Johnny Galeki doing duel roles. I know, I'm getting really silly here now. Oh well, it's late and I'm bored.
  10. It seems to me that many viewers, myself included at first were misconstrued when Sheldon was at a loss for answers to Amy asking to move in with him. Yes I believed at first it was all or mostly about their relationship forcefully progressing but didn't anyone mention the fact that his biggest concern was losing his friendship with Leonard? It was a very serious decision for him. I know that Leonard sounded very serious this time about getting away from Sheldon, but come on, he had just moved out, so don't you all think that Sheldon would have needed some breathing room until reality set in? It was a pretty good episode. I laughed when Sheldon mentioned the spoiler from The Walking Dead. "Have you seen the one where Lori dies? [NO]. Well maybe she doesn't so lets find out. Now i know whether Lori lives or dies because I watched the whole series up until present, but how would someone who hasn't yet watched the Walking Dead react to this statement by Sheldon? Speaking of Walking Dead, a reminder, the second half of the season continues tomorrow Sunday Feb 10 an 9:00 EST 8:00 C.
  11. This may be a dumb question but am I the only one to think that Sheldon's cry sounded faked or forced? Was it maybe intended to be like that just to be comical? Otherwise I think and Kripke matched up pretty well together in this episode. Bernie may have come off a little rough on Howard buying the 3D printer but then as a married couple it should be Howard's duty to at least confront discuss a major purchase like thatwith his wife first. Her saying that Howard makes peanuts out of line. I believe she may have considered to agree on him buying the printer it if reasonable financial arrangements were made.
  12. No, you're not the only one. I think the same way about Sheldon, but then again, I'm a straight male. I believe that has lots to do with it.
  13. This was one of the nerdiest episodes I've seen in ages. Put it in the books for future generations to look back upon. It's a classic!
  14. I loved this episode. The single plot throughout the show was a relief from all of the subplots in recent episodes. Although I liked most all of the episodes so far this year, this is the only one that had me audibly laughing hard when Sheldon was in the Human Resources office. Penny is really beginning to open up her feelings with Leonard and that is good. I like how they are getting along now, although I did feel some sort of uncomfortableness also when they were on the couch. I couldn't exactly pin what it was until I read some of the comments here. Now I understand that it had to do mostly with the directors and cameramen.. BTW, I think Alex is fitting in pretty well in this show. Her facial expressions are priceless. I for one think there is more to come between her, Leonard and Sheldon. She is most definitely more entertaining than Priya.
  15. Gee thanks, Now I'm in the mood for a Big Mac.
  16. Did you ever think that they might have been lousy or phoney wine experts? Either that or their imagination played tricks on their minds. One day recently, when I was sleepy I went for the milk jug in the fridge, (I live alone so I occasionally drink out of the container) and for a second I thought I was tasting milk until I realized it was water. Now if you try to confuse me with a taste of Paul Mason switched with a taste of Chateau Lafite Rothschild, there is no way you would be able to fool me, and I'm not a very serious wine drinker, would like to be but can't afford it.
  17. Before I go on to read any further comments on tonight's Fish displacement episode, I would like to answer your question if it had not yet already been answered. First of all, whatever the press says or thinks don't mean crap! It's all about the fans of the show that determines what is or what should be important. Although I grew up as a LP fan, (and I'm not talking about the 12 inch vinyl discs with grooves in it that was used for playing music, although, yeah, I did grow up with that too), in recent times (fast forwarding here from year 1 to year 6) SHAMY is stealing the show. I was in stitches tonight with the scenes of Amy on the couch. I normally don't like to put down people's opinions but anyone who thinks that Amy ought to be written off the show needs their head examined.
  18. Soft Leather Hard or Soft serve Ice cream?
  19. Not to be offensive to Jim Parsons but a few months ago I found and compared both of these pictures of him and the whacko Colorado theater shooter James Holmes. Look at the similarities in the posing and the hair.
  20. DVD, that is if it covers everything in the book. Death By a Black Hole or Death by an earth Destrying Meteor?
