Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

I feel like the show has become too formulaic. I like the fact that they've expanded the cast, but the current formula now seems to require that every episode has a B-story and possibly C-story that's used to make sure all 7 characters get a decent amount of screen time.

And, in part as a consequence of the aforementioned requirement to give everyone their share of screen time, every episode's plot seems to focus too exclusively on the relationships between the main characters.

Not that I'm against such stories being told, but I'd like to see them try doing some more episodes that break the usual format, and focus on something happening in the life of one of the characters that isn't primarily about their relationship to one of the other main 7. Perhaps a few more episodes without any B- or C-stories. It seems like they did this a bit more in Seasons 1 and 2, and I miss it.

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

Just watched the second episode in syndication. In it, Howard speaks to Penny in "perfect Russian" (I believe he calls her beautiful or something like that). When he went to space, didn't he say he couldn't speak Russian?

Not that I really expect them to remember a mundane detail like that, but its interesting watching some of these season 1 episodes in syndication and seeing how much the characters have changed. Sheldon seems like more of a cynical asshole in those episodes than the clueless smarty-pants he appears to be now.

Howard was hitting on her. His knowing perfect Russian is probably as true as him being goth, having an eye patch, etc. I imagine his "Perfect Russian" goes only as far as complimenting pretty women.

Exactly. I'm sure Howard can hit on women in at least a half-dozen language, plus Klingon and Orcish.

^ They sent him up to fix the toilet he designed.

Howard is according to himself and Leonard a polyglot, if he didn't speak Russian before, he might have learned it when the possibility of going to the ISS presented itself. It would have increased his chances of selection.

No they didn't. They picked his (teams) design for the deep field telescope to be installed on the station and he was chosen to go up with it.

I assumed it was about that mechanic arm he talked about several seasons ago.

As for the Russian, a lot of people can say several phrases in a foreign language very well when they still can't speak (or even sign) the language(s)

No, you can read my rant up-thread about how they treated his character on his return.

Is it just me or did they leave on the stupid "Fun With Flags" camera effect on one of the cameras? Vertical lines? Found it really distracting.

Yes! I thought it was a problem with our cable, which had been out for a few hours before the show started.

I liked Wil Wheaton's house number

Sheldon is really a douchebag to Amy. I know he's unaware of how people react to his actions, but surely he's picked some stuff up from tv shows at least.
