Anyone Here Like The Big Bang Theory Televison Show?

I recently discovered it and am currently at season 6. SO far my favorite sci fi reference was the episode with Leonard Nimoys voice in Sheldons dream. Unfortunately Nimoy didn't make an appearance but he voiced a Mego Spock figure and it was hilarious.

Anyone like the show and have a favorite episode or sci fi reference.

Re: Anyone Here Like The Big Bang Theory Televison Show?

I love the Big Bang Theory and am looking forward to the season finale two hours from now.

As for favorite sci-fi reference . . . Good Lord, where to begin? But I was impressed when they had Sheldon get upset because "Alphas" was canceled on a cliffhanger because that was a pretty obscure one to throw at a general audience.

I also loved the ep where Penny, Bernadette, and Amy got into an argument about how Thor's hammer worked . . ..

I liked it a lot in the first year or two but then the show became more mainatream and the "nerds" in the show became more of a laughing at them instead of laughing with them.

I love the show. My favorite sci-fi reference is when Sheldon had that dream with the Gorn. Hilarious stuff.

Re: Anyone Here Like The Big Bang Theory Televison Show?

Huge fan of the show. I know a lot of scifi nerds get really annoyed with it for whatever reason, and try to dismiss it as just another dumb Two and a Half Men, but the writing is actually a helluva lot more clever and witty than that. And the characters and performances are sharp and funny as hell too.

Re: Anyone Here Like The Big Bang Theory Televison Show?

I just picked up on this within the last couple of years...never watched the series in full but have seen most of them at least once because of the prevalence of syndicated reruns. The two classic favorite episodes that stick out in my mind are the episode that Penny and Sheldon go to war, and the first Wil Wheaton episode with the TWOK send-up....

I like Big Bang Theory a lot, although its been getting weaker over the last few seasons, and its definitely laughing at instead of with nerds more and more. The latest season has probably been the weakest so far, but its still had good points.

Love it. Currently my favorite sitcom. The science and science fiction jokes and references are usually spot on. If fact, I wonder if the writers use this BBS as source material. Sometimes the conversations between the characters sound like far too many exchanges here.

Re: Anyone Here Like The Big Bang Theory Televison Show?

I enjoy it for all the trek, sf, and comic book references. Also, Nathan Fillion, Summer Glau, and Will Wheaton have all appeared as themselves. Not to mention Neil deGrasse Tyson, Steven Hawking and others.
Plus, I get to explain all the jokes to my husband who has no experience with anything trek, sf, or comic books. Wait, that is also a hassle.

That's the episode with Nimoys voice that I mentioned. Excellent episode.

Re: Anyone Here Like The Big Bang Theory Televison Show?

I loved the one where Katee Sackhoff was in the bathtub with Howard, asking him why he preferred fantasizing about a fictional woman when there was a real one waiting for him.

Since I don't want to be chastised for linking that particular scene with its subject matter, I'll use this one instead.

Re: Anyone Here Like The Big Bang Theory Televison Show?

The show isn't as funny as it used to be, but I still watch it out of habit at this point. I do laugh occasionally. I always thought the show was a lot funnier when none of them had girlfriends and Penny was completely unattainable. When it moved from a "nerds do nerdy things" comedy to "lets laugh at nerds in relationships" comedy, I started to lose interest.

The main problem I have with the show is Sheldon. We all have annoying friends who we tolerate, but I don't understand how all these characters let a man-child run their entire lives. Everything anybody does revolves around how Sheldon feels at that exact moment, and except for Leonard, I doubt if Sheldon would even care if any of them died.

Re: Anyone Here Like The Big Bang Theory Televison Show?

From what little I've seen, Sheldon comes across as nothing more than trying to be the "ultimate fanboy". So the show really has little interest for me...despite having hottie guest appearances by Summer Glau and Katee Sackoff.
