    Guess this should be on the TV forum but I've just got into as the wife loves it.
    There's a character in it called Shelodon who reminds me of someone who used to regularly post here on GC, but I can't think of who. :confused:

    Very funny show and I usually hate US sitcoms.

    :D

    I'm not crazy! My mother had me tested..

    .. I watched the first couple of series then something distracted me and I haven't been back to finish... almost tempted, but we're watching Lost at the moment.

    BAZINGA!!

    No.. I mean we really are watching lost

    I love the Big Bang Theory, great show. I'm not normally a fan of American comedies but this has really got me hooked.

    Good bunch of characters and Kaley Cuoco is pleasing on the eye, too!

    The Halloween episode has been the best so far... the one that starts with them playing a prank on Sheldon and it ended in him collapsing/peeing himself! Epic.

    Sheldon is nothing like pincho paxton, sheldon is a genius, pincho well lets be kind and say just say he wasn't.

    I do love the big bang theory though, great episode to end this season.

    Love Big Bang Theory and definitely agree with the view that it was better without Amy. Grown to hate her through this last series. Think to myself at least once an episode 'Oh F*** off Amy' :mad:

    Amy is the weakest character but occasionally they give her a good line or two (but the whole not having friends as a kid theme is getting a bit old)

    Apparently his mum is played by Carol Ann Susi

    TBBT factoid: Melissa Rauch (actress that plays Bernadette) doesn't actually have that high pitch a voice naturally, she puts it on, as her 'normal' voice is a bit deeper

    "You're in my spot..."

    Love the scene where he's locked up, and the more recent one at the urinals.

    Kripke's voice could get very annoying if they didn't make use of him sparingly. Thankfully, they do.

    Went downhill after the girls arrived. It was far funnier when it was just 3 nerds unable to get their end away despite all their efforts to fake manliness, penny was the incredibly dim girl across the hall Leonard had a crush on (and once every so often bonked for 3 seconds), and Sheldon was the asexual anally retentive socially awkward super genius.

    Since the arrival of the girls Leonard is growing up, Howard has become completely boring and lost all of his misogynistic qualities, Raj is even more pathetically desperate and possibly homo, and Sheldon is now a slapstick prat.

    SWMBO still loves this show, but I've gone from loving it to becoming easily angry whenever she puts it on.

    It's just another one of those shows that clearly gave in to studio demands to incorporate more women into a more politically correct universe and have a male idiot that worryingly seems to appeal to this planets population.

    Yawn.:boring:

    I do agree that the girls have ruined the balanced of the show somewhat, sometimes it does feel like their characters (especially their own trio) feels forced somewhat, saying that, I still enjoy the show :thumbsup:

    I think the episode with Kripke and Sheldon playing basketball was one of the funniest of the series.

    As for Amy, do you lot have no Blossom love! I also read that she is that clever in real life.

    I think the weakest character is Cuoco, they have done all the jokes with her to death.
