I hated most of the first season, even quit watching for a while, but it was Sheldon who drew me back and made me catch up. I'd seen plenty of nerdy guys fantasizing about dimwitted, big busted blonds on TV (yes, there is no question in my mind she was written as dimwitted) and sleazy losers like Howard before, but Sheldon was what was unique. The others developed the personalities they have today later. And Jim is still my hero for knowing it was time to walk away and move on. 2) THANK YOU! 3) Fat Debbie jokes anyone? Those were cringe worthy, 1) I agree with most of what you say but not all of it. You're right in assessing that the nerdy guys meeting the ditzy blonde thing had been done a million times, but what made me enjoy the early seasons nonetheless was the cast. No matter how typical the characters (initially), the cast, IMO gave them soul. I even liked pervy Howard because, to me at least, Simon played him in such a way that you couldn't totally hate him, even if you knew you should. The bolded part: 1 million times yes. 2) Agree 3) I loved the fat Debbie jokes! To me they weren't cringe-worthy because the comments came mainly from her son. to me it depicted the love-hate relationship they had, and not matter how much Howard talked bad about her he knew he couldn't function with her attending to his every need.

And even if I know you know this, I'll bite and play. What defines you as a person is the majority of your actions and not just one or two isolated incidents. That's where the track record part comes in play. Sheldon is usually selfish while Leonard is usually not.
