Episodes Bbt Is Hovering And Needs A Boost
CitizenCritic posted a topic in The ShowBBT is Hovering and Needs a Boost 6.0 By CitizenCritic, Yesterday What I enjoyed about the past seasons of 'The Big Bang Theory' was the diversity of set locations such as: a Las Vegas bar, a hotel seminar, the desert, the Antarctic expedition, Howard ('Rocket Man") in space, etc. These 'away from home' adventures made the show more interesting and different and the comedy seemed to flow better too. In the 7th season premiere, Leonard's sea expedition was too short although Sheldon's dream sequence was funny However what I'm sensing now is the characters are starting to get dull and the sets are being relegated to: the boys (Sheldon, Leonard) apartment, Penny's apartment, Raj's apartment, Howard and Bernadette's apartment, the university (cafeteria, labs, offices) and the comic bookstore. This show needs to amp up because I definitely believe it has 'The Simpsons' staying power. The actors/actresses perform their lines wonderfully but the comedic potential that science and technology offers the audience is not being exploited enough. What makes this show different than any of the other situation comedies is the way science and technology is woven into the episodes in an informative but also witty and occassional slapstick manner. What I'm suggesting to Mr. Lorre is, "more funny science, please." Take the viewers on a laughable adventure with leading edge (or weird) science and the technological underpinnings that make it possible. For example: 1. Bernadette starts to grow (or shrink) after being exposed to one of the biological organisms she is studying in her lab. 2. Amy programs a hat used in her monkey lab experiments that forces the wearer to act uncontrollably romantic and tricks Sheldon into wearing it. 3. Howard goes back to MIT and finds out he was cloned in a perverse experiment. 4. Sheldon grows a goatee because stroking it makes him solve quantum mechanic math better. 5. Kripke designs a plasma propulsion engine, attaches it to a small observation balloon and uses it to spy on his beautiful neighbor. 6. Penny explores method acting as a way to make herself more marketable. She pretends she is a character who suffers from spectrophobia (fear of ghosts). 7. The apartment elevator mysteriously starts to work again but it takes its riders down to Hell. The possibilities are limitless and the laughter, well; I'm chuckling already!
Big Bang- Keeping Women Out Of Computer Science
the_shewwy posted a topic in The ShowHas anybody seen this? A recent study by the University of Washington and UC Berkeley claims that TBBT is partially to blame for the lack of interest that young women have in computer science in universities (never mind that there isn't a computer scientist in the show). The study claims that TBBT is enforcing the stereotype of computer scientists as pale, antisocial, desperate, video-game and science-fiction obsessed young men and that this is offensive to young women's sensibilities. Ridiculous! http://io9.com/do-geek-stereotypes-keep-women-out-of-computer-science-601879247
