Re: The Big Bang Theory

I remember someone here on the TrekBBS saying that Christopher was basically like Sheldon.

I hadn't seen any of the show at that time, but have since I must say that poster here was correct.

Re: The Big Bang Theory

I don't know why they didn't just incorporate the broken leg into the show. She's been sitting down or behind the bar since she's been back.

I believe that is why a TV has writers, to get around little problems like this, after all Sheldon had not broken his leg, and he used it.
Even if they wrote the broken leg into the show,why would Penny use the robot? Why would Sheldon even let her near the controls?

Yeah. It would seem way out of character. For both of them.

Ya, you gotta wonder how much they had to shell out for the Indy theme song.

Re: The Big Bang Theory

The line for Indy brought back a few memories. My friends and I were often in such lines in the late 70s and early 80s. We were strong advocates of getting there early. ( sometimes the night before) and our girlfriends didn't always get why. Had to hurry them along at more than one dinner.

My sister was the one who turned me on to the show after saying the characters reminded her of me and my friends. If only I was half as smart as the Big Bang Theory characters.

ok so lets try and be creative rather than stack up problems

Lets say that Penny has to leave down, to look after her parents or something, but misses the gang, so she talks Sheldon into setting it up so that she can operate the robot from where she is, that way she does not miss out on hanging out with the gang.

another idea, Penny is for some reason confinded to her apartment, and uses the robot to communcaite with the outside world.

As for why Sheldon would allow it, well it can be pitched as an experiment, of some kind.

As Professor Zoom pointed out, it would run counter to what we know of Penny and Sheldon's characters. Penny can barely drive a car safely, so I doubt Sheldon would trust her with his robot. And Sheldon is not known for sharing or playing well with others.

Since the actress wasn't in the episodes filmed at the time of/after the accident, I think its safe to assume she wasn't avaiable for filming of any kind.

Yeah. It would make more sense, if, for example, she couldn't leave her apartment, for the gang to just come across the hall and "invade" her place. That would be more inline with the characters and still create a comedic conflict.

I feel like Penny would roll her eyes if offered the robot.

Re: The Big Bang Theory

Again, the actress would have to be available and able to film such scenes. And the scripts would have to be reworked to include it.

Even if the actress would have been available, most of the dreams don't last long on the show. So, reoccurring lengthy dreams would be an odd fit for the show.

Also, I feel like you're fixing a problem that wasn't really a big problem. It's not like they had to hide her pregnancy.
