Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

A couple of things are bothering about the show now. One is they are being awfully cruel to Howard's character. He comes back from space, to no welcome whatever, and in the next episode they have to make him too embarrassed to talk about being in space. Are the writers afraid they can't make fun of Howard anymore unless they grind him into the dirt? Pathetic.

The other thing is I'm fed up with Amy's whining. If we have to listen to Amy whine to Sheldon every episode I hope they kill off her character in a horrible flesh-eating bacteria accident.

He was being kind of a dick about it.

I think we can also assume that there has been some time between the episodes. Any subject, no matter how cool, would become boring after a while.

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

Just watched an old episode of BBT on syndication, and it appears Leonard drives a BMW. So even though we still don't know how much money they make, he's probably doing alright for himself.

Yeah, I shortly drove a 15 year old BMW when I was 18, it doesn't say much.

A girl in my high school class had a Porsche for a while.

Nah, Spock and Uhura. More fun.

Granted, Amy-in-blackface would be, er, problematic. Although they could have just put Amy in Uhura's red outfit and let that be the joke. "My hailing frequencies are open."

Besides, Uhura is way more iconic than Chapel!

It might be the Friends-effect (no matter what job you have, you can afford to live in NYC in a nice apartment, etc.). However, they do have plenty of money to drop on comics, statues, collectibles, etc. Sheldon, especially, seems to have plenty of money. The time he lent money to Penny, he truly didn't care about when she paid him back. Sheldon's too uptight to just let something like that go, unless he truly didn't need or even want the money.

Sheldon: I see no large upcoming expenditures, unless they develop an affordable technology to fuse my skeleton with Adamantium like Wolverine.
Penny: Are they working on that?
Sheldon: I sincerely hope so.
The end of the episode showed that the others knew about where Sheldon kept his extra money and would take it, presumably without Sheldon caring.

Sheldon: In case either of you have larceny in your heart, you should know that I have moved my money out of the snake can.
Leonard: But if you're ever short, there's always a couple of fifties in Green Lantern's ass.
I just watched the first Wil Wheaton episode again. There was this exchange in that episode between Raj and Sheldon:

Sheldon: I’m sorry, Raj, but I have no interest in playing a game in which I find no challenge.
Raj: What about the money?
Sheldon: I have money.
Raj: But this is other money.
Sheldon: How does it different from the money I have?
Raj: Half of it will be mine.
Sheldon: Do you need it to buy a less disturbing sweater-vest?

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

I think you guys are blowing this way out of proportion.. the only guy really with money is Raj (through his family) and the others are all PhDs (and Wolowitz has a Master's degree from MIT) without any huge monthly payments like mortgages, families to support or big loans to pay off.

Compared with other comedy shows they are pretty much realistic in that regard and not over the top.

Rand.

My shoes are more iconic than Rand, but she is a blond in a red tunic.

Amy's a brunette. So maybe the Romulan Commander or T'Pring?

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

She's a dirty blonde more so than a brunette, surely?

A dirty, dirty blond.

When she was Smurfette however, burnadette's wig was practically iridescent yellow

Amy? Not even close to blonde, dirty or other wise.
