  1. An interesting episode, highlighting the differences between Sheldon and Spock. I'm always happy to see a Spock-centred episode, too. One difference that I don't believe people have pointed out here is that while Sheldon is self-centred, Spock, like all Vulcans, adheres to a universal, impartial, utilitarian-esque moral system, that takes into account the interests of all sentient beings. I couldn't envisage Sheldon, unlike Spock and other Vulcans, becoming a vegetarian, for example.
  2. I think Season 7 has certainly been better than Seasons 5-6, but not as good as Seasons 1-4. But as 3ku11 said, the show had to grow and I can still watch classic TBBT on DVD at any time.
  3. Yes, I've now seen Sherlock 3.1 and 3.2. Both of them have been great, in my opinion. Looking forward to episode 3.
  4. He might have been referring to the fact that he has two doctorates, but who knows. As you say, a minor inconsistency. Perhaps Sheldon was referring to the fact that English is one of the official languages of India, along with Hindi. Still, Raj's point probably still stands.
  5. Certainly not any of the episodes before Season 5. My worst ones probably exist in Season 5, although I haven't watched them since they aired so I can't remember them very well. A few people have mentioned The Speckerman Recurrence, which I would agree with,
  6. Yes, I also thought of Sheldon while seeing it.
  7. I just saw the sci-fi movie Ender's Game, with Harrison Ford. I really enjoyed it and it was very thought-provoking.

    I withhold judgment on whether I actually believe in them or not, although I think I'd be more surprised if there weren't aliens than if there were. It's certainly a possibility, considering that there are 100 billion galaxies in our universe each with hundreds of millions, in fact billions, of stars.
  9. And relationships aren't predictable? Ha! They can change the show in innumerable different ways, why do they have to go down the predictable relationship route every single time? Leonard and Penny is fine. Season 4 Amy and Sheldon was fine. I, for one, believe that their careers should be more important than their relationships, but that's a matter of opinion. To be fair to the writers, they're making sure that Sheldon and Amy don't take it too far (i.e. into coitus), so that's fine. The perceived amount of relationships in The Big Bang Theory is lower than the actual amount, but everybody thinks that there's more because, hmm, I wonder why? Because relationships are utterly predictable and dull. They should definitely do something regarding brain mapping in Season 7 and get Sheldon incorporating science into his conversations again.
  10. I'd relish a battle between Leonard and Sheldon's mothers. It'd be nice to see Leslie Winkle return too.

    We have no evidence for the existence of aliens, however, considering the amount of galaxies, stars and habitable planets, it's certainly a possibility. I'm currently withholding judgement until evidence comes along. One cannot really disprove the existence of aliens though, so even if we don't find evidence there's obviously a possibility.
  12. They're not going to endorse any speculative scientific hypothesis which undermines the current one. They do mention string, or rather, M-theory at times, but that's only because it seeks to find out something new. In any case, The Big Bang Theory has become less of a science comedy than it used to be and now caters to people of below average intelligence in an effort to get even more viewers. They consequently talk about science less and less. That being said, it is a pro-reason and pro-science show, often criticising religion and superstition, but that's slightly off this topic.
  13. I don't think so. If anything, it's become less about Sheldon than it was.
  14. Probably the whole part including Sheldon's domino orgasm. Other than that, the scene in the car with Leonard when he says 'Would you like to hear a classic Sheldon Cooper factoid' was nice, as it reminded me of the good old days.
  15. Seeing as this is a thoughts section, and after looking at your profile page, it seems that Sheldon and Leonard's mother would be a good fit. For one, Sheldon truly respects her, whereas many people (even Shamy fans) don't like Sheldon's attitude to Amy at times. I really want Leonard's mother and Amy to meet in person; after all (despite the subtle change that the writers have made), Amy was originally a neurobiologist while Leonard's Mum was a neuroscientist.
  16. We're certainly been in agreement on a lot of things recently.
  17. You've not crossed a line, especially not with me. So, I agree with the parts in bold. I don't think Sheldon should have a girlfriend and if he had to have one, I'd have preferred Season 4 Amy (or Leonard's mother, actually) Sheldon should also win more, yes. He did win the Chancellor's Award despite being embarrassed on stage, at least. And the helium in the room was just hilarious. However, I think he should have won the physics bowl, and other things. It's not about being protective of him at all. I liked the Season 4 setup between Sheldon and Amy, and they should go back to that. Sheldon has never been interested in relationships though, and I don't think he should be. The beliefs that he had about relationships were just as valid as the belief that relationships are good. To say that it's "evolution" to go from the former to the latter is false. There are other things that characters can do to change without having to invoke relationships. For example (I'm not necessarily advocating this), we could see Sheldon start to employ sarcasm, while still maintaining a lack of perception of sarcasm when others use it. It's just that the sarcasm works so well with Dr. Gregory House in House M.D., and they're similar characters.
  18. I suppose he could act like a Sherlock Holmes type character. Or, because he loves Data, he could take on Data's love for Sherlock Holmes. I too applaud Sheldon based storylines that don't include Amy.
  19. No matter what you say, Star Wars and Star Trek are the best for TV/Movies. As for books: - the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov is great - I, Robot by Isaac Asimov is great - Anything by Isaac Asimov is great - The Star Wars Thrawn Trilogy by Timothy Zahn is great (everyone was hoping the new films would be based on these books - The Selonian Star Wars Trilogy by an author whose name I cannot be bothered to look up is also great
  20. An aspiring physicist, yes. Welcome.
  21. Exactly, it's good that they've made him confident and comfortable with himself, but that doesn't mean they have to stop doing that. It's not that he 'must' be asexual, but the message that The Big Bang Theory gives isn't just about Sheldon, remember - we now have a married couple and two people who love each other. Also, I was 'up in arms' at his change in attitude to romance. Why does one have to drive either? It's not necessarily good at all - it's bad for the environment. They should have given him this as justification for not wanting to drive. So, what is asexuality then?
  22. Absolutely not. His former self would just look like a hypocrite and, no matter what people say, engaging in coitus isn't a sign of 'growing up' at all. Rather than celebrating the unique character of Sheldon, it'd be giving everyone the impression 'oh, he's finally conformed to our ways'. Who says it's the right way? @Supreme1 - that wouldn't at all explain why he's not sexually active. Homosexuals are also sexually active, you know. However, asexuality would explain it, though I don't think we can claim that he's aromantic anymore.
