Seriously, wives/girlfriends who are friends would start bickering because their husbands are fighting over a parking spot? You stand by your man but not over something so stupid. Why even get involved?
But why should the women be any more rational or less ridiculous than the men?

Is Bernadette having Amy's car towed any sillier than grown men stealing Iron Man helmets and getting naked to prove a point?

I feel like they try to portray them as less silly, maybe with the exception of Amy. Or at least silly about different things? I mean for several seasons Penny basically served as the person we could compare them to, the "normal person" that showed us when the guys were being ridiculous. The girls all do stupid things but I've always gotten the sense that they're supposed to seem grounded in a way that the guys aren't.

But that's a double standard. By rights, the women should be entitled to act equally ridiculous and immature!

And, seriously, I think Bernadette and Amy have always been portrayed as a little off-kilter . . . .

Especially Amy...she's definitely off, maybe a little twisted.

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

I haven't checked for a long while so color me surprised and impressed by the viewer ratings.. they have more than doubled from roughly 8 million in the first season (which is not bad for a new show) to over 17 for the last few episodes.

So Big Bang is here to stay.. their renewal includes season 7 but i guess if they keep up the interest and everyone agrees it'll go on.

If someone insults your guy you will let it slide? Even if it's over something trivial and stupid? You're bigger woman than most i know.. i think it's normal that people take sides. In this episode it just escalated a bit the same as it escalated with the men.

Plus, it may have started over a parking spot, but once it turned into a competition over which guy was more accomplished (and, conversely, which guy was being most unreasonable) . . . well, then all bets were off!

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

These last two episodes have been hysterical. The first being a classic Big Bang episode and the second being one where having the women integrated into the cast actually works.

Watching TBS showing today, the one with Sheldon's prior roommate. Asian guy, who looked familiar. It's Glenn from Walking Dead!!!!! Glad things went well for him.

If your choice is Zombies or Sheldon, go with Zombies.

Re: The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Discussion

Thanks for the still. Gosh, he looks young!

Or am I getting old?


Hubby was watching an old "Have Gun Will Travel" episode. Guest star in a bit role looked familiar. I asked Hubby, "Is that Apollo from TOS?" DAMN! This was TEN years before TOS and I recognized him?! I can't remember if I closed the garage door and was never a huge fan of the episode, but I recognized him?! What a waste of gray matter!

The Sheldon story in last night's episode troubled me somewhat. On the surface, it was hilarious, but I got to thinking afterwards and I think that if the genders were reversed, there'd be quite the uproar about it.

it's hard to imagine any character other than Sheldon not knowing these things had a sexual connotation.
