    I was kind of startled when I saw Sheldon as Data... I totally took him for Spiner somehow. It was a bizarre experience. Chalk him up for the actual NuTrek TNG reboot series?

    Haha hadn't seen that one. I guess the episode is to have aired in Sweden. I have however seen the episode with the Spock toy and the transporters several times.

    That was my thought, too. Jim Parsons for the role of alternate reality Data.

    Hyperbole much?

    If being a nerd means being highly intelligent, having a well paying job and dating an attractive woman, then sign me up!

    I'd be offended if someone questioned my nerd-ness!

    "Hipster" is a much worse insult.

    I understand BBT broke viewer records with this episode.

    Probably because people enjoy it and find it funny. I do, but apparently I'm a self hating nerd or something.

    IT Crowd is a different type of humor.

    I LIKED IT BEFORE IT WAS MAINSTREAM!

    :p

    No, I didn't.

    I think the show's funny....not always, but most of the times. And I'll never hand in my nerdcard!

    I tried to watch it after I read about the Trek references and guest stars, but despite those good points, it just seems like a typical network sitcom to me, and I was never interested enough to watch an entire episode.

    It's been doing that lately, and I read a story attributing its sudden surge in success to the TBS reruns.

    I've started watching it more because of that. And a co-worker who I thought would never like a show like BBT - she's been mentioning it every day for like two weeks now.

    I wondered why Sheldon dressed up as Data - doesn't he hate Brent Spiner, after he tore up his autographed MISB Wesley Crusher action figure? Or did they make up?

    It's the closest he'll ever get to having a robot body.

    It's becoming quite strange--my parents are in their late-50's and they're becoming huge fans, along with many other people whom I would never have guessed would like the show.

    I think the gradual additions of the Bernadette and Amy Farrah Fowler characters were intended to attract more mainstream viewers.
