Can't believe that someone wouldn't have known about Mayim Bialik having played Blossom. lol

What I did find interesting to learn however was that Mayim has a PhD in neuroscience in real life, just like her character Amy. Found that out right after she first appeared on the show.

Actually, neuroscience and neurobiology aren't exactly the same, as she's explained in various interviews, but a lot of the terminology is the same, so I'm sure memorizing lines is a lot easier for her than a lot of her colleagues.

I really need to study up on the imdb site a bit more.

I never knew (until yesterday) that Johnny Galecki was in the movie Hancock.

He was pretty cool in it too, for the entire 2 minutes anyways :)

I watched Hancock a few weeks ago and saw that He was in that movie.

I also forgot that He plays Rusty in the classic Christmas Vacation movie.

Yep, Raj's hookup was with Danica McKellar from The Wonder Years (she played Kevin Arnold's girlfriend). And she was also a guest star in a Season 1 episode of How I Met Your Mother, playing a girl Ted Mosby hooks up with. I love her! I love how she played the good girl next door in her younger days and now she's playing the role of random girls the characters hook up with.

And I watched Blossom as a kid. I loved her too! Amy is just the total opposite of what Blossom would grow up to be.
