  1. As well as enjoying the cuddle scene, there was a moment in the cafeteria when Sheldon and Amy were joking around that was especially cute
  2. Having seen Sheldon and Leonard working from home and especially at weekends i was just wondering. Luckily the job i do does not entail me to work from home (though i know other people in my company do)
  3. Jim is in his spot!! Looking very good as well
  4. Maybe Stuart could hook up with Penny IF she and Leonard dont work out!!
  5. From the episodes i have seen of season 5 i especially like the werewolf transformation, the scene with Sheldon and the bongos was hilarious have now seen episodes 1-6 and 17-24
  6. I have not seen that one yet, am a bit behind on series 5 as i only started watching the show a few months ago! I know this week in the UK there are repeats on in the afternoon for season 5 so i am recording them all and watching when i get home
  7. http://www.vulture.com/2012/08/jim-parsons-favorite-episode-of-the-big-bang-theory-season-five.html As the Emmys approach (September 23), Vulture reached out to nominees to pose the question, “What was your favorite episode from the last season of your show?†The series kicked off yesterday with Mad Men's Jon Hamm. Today, we have The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons. The Episode: "The Ornithophobia Diffusion" The paradox of The Big Bang Theory's Sheldon Cooper (Parsons) is that he's thoroughly endearing, yet totally incapable of expressing affection. His love interest of three seasons, Amy Fowler (Mayim Bialik), hasn't been able to nudge him past hand-holding. But in Parsons's favorite episode of Season 5, The Ornithophobia Diffusion, Sheldon finally learns how to say 'I love you'... to a blue jay. "It's exceptionally silly. It's exceptionally unlikely. It really gets right up to that suspension of disbelief," Parsons tells us, describing his love for this particular episode. "For me, that's one of my greatest joys as an actor ... I love the chance to be in this most unlikely scenario, and to live fully and hopefully, believably and honestly in that world." Sheldon's interactions with the bird are actually the B story of the episode, which focuses mainly on a movie date between Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco). While those two are busy trying to hash out their "just friends" boundaries, Sheldon — who, we learn, has a terrible fear of birds — tries to shoo a stubborn blue jay from the apartment's windowsill using increasingly desperate measures. (One involves a Boba Fett helmet and a broom.) Undeterred, the bird flies into the apartment. "We did a lot of pre-taping," Jim recalls. "The bird coming in and landing in Sheldon's spot — which I thought was a stroke of genius on the writers' part — we had to shoot that in segments, obviously. It wasn't gonna do that in front of an audience." With Sheldon forced to confront his ornithophobia head-on, he has a complete change of heart. The idea of bonding with a bird wasn't so foreign to Parsons, who had a parakeet for fifteen years growing up. At one point during shooting, he communed so enthusiastically with the blue jay that the animal trainer had to step in and tell him to back off. ("I was just like, eye-to-eye with him, and that's beak-to-eye as far as the dangerous part goes," Parsons says.) Still, there was one moment of awkwardness with his hollow-boned scene partner. "The only time I got scared was — and it fit the script in a way — when Sheldon is supposed to pet the bird," he admits. "Because I thought, well, I would bite me. Birds don't like to be petted ... and we only had to do a couple takes or whatever, and he did not ever bite me. But that part kind of freaked me out." Bird scenes aside, Parsons says that The Ornithophobia Diffusion highlighted one of his favorite things about working on The Big Bang Theory: exchanging barbs with Galecki. "There's almost this touch of Vaudevillian banter back and forth, just real quick and real. It's not natural human speak," he says. "And so the challenge, of course, is to make it as natural as possible. But there's great fun in dancing that dance. And for me, there's a real thrill in feeling like you accomplished that."
  8. _______________________________ Thanks for info Presumably Jim attended this reception as well being a nominee???
  9. Finally seen the episode, Amy thinking Leonard was in love with her was pretty funny and Sheldon telling leonard after karate chopping him "she is not for you" was good, just shows his feelings for Amy are very real Not surprised that Bernadette does not want to live with Howards mother, she knows that she does everything for Howard!
  10. maybe wednesday is rehearsal day and thursday is filming day but thats just a guess, somebody else might know
  11. If i lived in the US i would go to as many tapings as possible
  12. The following info was taken from previous thread ______________________________________________ http://forum.the-big-bang-theory.com/thread-3019.html They have a 5 day work schedule per week. There work week starts on Wednesday, then they work Thursday, Friday, take Saturday and Sunday off, come back Monday and then film the episode Tuesday evening. TBBT will tape 24 episodes this season from August till April.
  13. Yeah she went back to work the day after the accident

  15. I just saw a link from Mayims twitter page that she and Mark the director are probably going to film from such a way that we dont see the injury my computer is not letting me put the link on here, i know not why!
  16. The 1st episode seems like fun!
  17. yeah and then runs back to finish his knocking sequence!
  18. I love Ant and Dec! Mine are called Millie and Molly
  19. I have never cried at any movie but the nearest i have got is at the end of Armageddon when Bruce Willis is talking to his daughter from the asteroid that was a bit sad
  20. Kittens are cute! i got mine when they were 6 weeks old, the lady i got them from had several cats but it just so happened that the mother cat and daughter cat both gave birth within a a few days of each other so i just took 1 from each I love dogs as well, as well as my full time job i often house/dog sit for people and use my holiday time to do it in
  21. I have 2 cats both 13 years old now
  22. Nothing happened to Penny, when Kaley was injured _____________________________________________________ Yeah but a hand is more visible than a leg, unless they film her in such a way that we cant see her hand! Remember: Sheldon and Amy like video chat... ____________________________________ I guess they could do that, i do wonder if they will do something else though
  23. Finally seen this episode Sheldon is very good at attempting to solve situations what are uncomfortable within the group, i know he is meant to be socially unaware of problems but this shows he knows when to attempt to solve things and not for the 1st time either
  24. My favorite moment of this episode was the scene with Sheldon and Penny in her apartment where they pretended they were a married couple, they do provide a lot of comedic value together
