  1. I love not being able to watch a movie rooted in historical events because the filmmakers have to assault me with: • pretentious music telling me how awed I should be by the historical significance of the following events (cut to slow-motioned close-ups from the film) and the 'importance' of this production team 'preserving' these events on film. • A requisite list of sites, communities, & organizations I should be 'proud' to support so I can do "my part" to keep our legacy from being lost • a host of experts, who will appear on the DVDs I need to order, to explain why this film is "our most important effort" • and lastly, the great promise-chant-pledge from the creators: "We stand on a wall and say, 'No historical inaccuracies are going to hurt you tonight, not on our watch.'" And all of this before I even get to the Main Menu! It's not even a part of the 'extras.'
  2. To me, BBT was an exceptional approach to an uncommon scenario: genius roommates. It was clever, original, and endearing in that these geniuses were also regular humans. I personally believe the maximum mileage for a TV show with no major overhauls is four seasons - BBT has not been an exception. And although, I am grateful the show was not discontinued, I am disappointed with recent BBT; not because there was change, but because the changes were ordinary. I feel in most of the recent episodes ANY guys could play out their roles. It is funny to see geniuses deal with the day-to-day realities non-geniuses have to deal with; my problem is that they're not really being geniuses about it. Honestly, if I had started with season 5 and no prior knowledge of the show, I don't know how much I would get from the writing that these guys were geniuses (or at least exceptional). There is a growing "lowest-common-denominator" about the show's writing. But I've grown attached to these characters, so I'll keep watching. I just don't think it's all that endearing to watch exceptional people doing everyday things the same way ordinary people do. And for the record - I think Amy is one of the best decisions they've made with the show.
  3. Welcome - enjoy the polls!
  4. I can't tell if the shocked face is good or bad... hee hee
  5. Hi Colleen - welcome aboard!
  6. I honestly can't remember the last time I've seen a payphone in person. Sorry, that wasn't a complaint - I meant no disrespect to the thread.
  7. Bernadette is the trickiest character for me. I either find myself wishing they'd never made her character or really being delighted at her presence on the show. It disturbs me that I can't honestly answer the question if I love or hate her (or anything about her for that matter) - she simply ALWAYS stays on that proverbial fence & and it drives me batty. ...I feel strangely better having typed this

    Welcome *waves quickly*
  9. When you dress up as Nurse Chapel and try to use a tricorder on your wife....

    This or That?

    Ms Green Re-Tie only the loose shoelace? or both laces?
  11. I don't know how it would advance anything, but if we're not talking about "fantasy" anymore... I would love to see the four guys enter a comic book contest with Stewart to create a new superhero. We already know Stewart can draw & the prize money would go towards keeping Stewart's comic shop afloat. (And I would love to see them make Leslie Winkle the supervillain and Barry Kripke her toadie - lol)
  12. LOL - Awesome! (I'm so glad I did not have liquid in my esophagus when I read this.)
  13. Welsome Sophie, nice to have you aboard!
  14. In no way trying to be helpful I offer a list of the 100 most common surnames in Nebraska http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ne/topic/resources/basic/ne_surnames.html And the following stats on Penny's Nebraskan ethnicity: 1. Chance that she's German 38.6% 2. ...that she's Irish 13.4% 3. English 9.6% 4. Swedish 4.9% and let's not forget 5. Czech 4.9%
  15. K, you need to guess for Boy as well as Girl (no more than three names for each gender). I'll go first If it's a boy Isaac (after Sir Isaac Newton) If it's a girl: Penny (Amy's BFF)
  16. Sheldon's contracts seem to be his way of avoiding having to ask "please don't" and trusting to friendship; but, as far as I can tell, the contracts yield no better results than if he did just ask "please don't" while trusting to friendship.
  17. I'm sorry Br33na. I have what I call a "Jump-to-C" syndrome. That is, if I know "A", and I know "B", then I automatically jump to the conclusion that "C": ["A" knows "B"] is true. This usually happens with people from different areas of my life. For example, if I'm eating lunch with a co-worker, and a classmate stops to say hello, I won't introduce that classmate to my co-worker because if I know both of them then they already know each other. Hence, for no very good reason, I assume that if • "A": the characters of BBT are fans of Star Trek and if • "B": Br33na is a fan of BBT, therefore • "C": Br33na is a fan of Star Trek and knows who nurse Chapel is and what a tricorder does. I can't promise I won't do it again, I only apologize for being confusing in my earlier posts and offer that I wasn't trying to be beleaguering.
  18. I'm hoping Raj gets inebriated at the reception and finds the love of his life. Alternatively, I will settle for the writers establishing that Raj is gay if that will allow Raj to find the love of his life. I really hate that they keep dangling this option over our collective heads; and I frequently wonder that Raj's selcetive mutism is a hypochondriacal reaction to some relationship-based anxiety. Has anyone else noticed how frequently they visit the vacillating topic of Raj's orientation?
