But with the guys, we've established that they're geniuses and they're also nerds. So they do nerdy things,and that's fine. And when you get a really big nerdy reaction, it's based in something that's already established. Think of Sheldon's reaction to getting Leonard Nimoy's DNA, or a restraining order from Stan Lee. That's a big reaction based into an established part of his character. Even when the show goes for the really over the top stuff, it bases on something to do with an established part of their characters. Howard crashing the mars rover because he's trying to have sex. Sheldon pulling off an elaborate science based revenge prank. That's in their characters, not their genders. The stuff with Amy feels like very stereotypical gender based material, not character based.

The show has really been going downhill recently...but the latest episode to air in the Us 'The Launch Accelerator' is *hopefully* a return to its former glory

Never really got this show. Haha, another BSG quote, they're so nerdy.

Yeah, I'll get my coat...

Not a very good ep this week, and no Amy either. I think the two are connected.

Last episode this Thursday on E4; the last few episodes have been good, there's always good things here and there in every episode. Season 5 has been great and I hope that the finale doesnt disappoint

The shows quality fluxuates in response to Sheldons weight.

Skinny Sheldon = Great times

Bulky/muscular Sheldon = Decline in quality.

Anyone else think that the wedding episode was terrible. The behaviour of the witnesses/ministers made me want to switch the TV off in disgust.

I wouldn't have said terrible. The 'close your eyes and hold out your hand' gag was good though. We've all done it. wait, we all have, right?

I am getting tired of the excuses made for keeping Howard's mother off screen though.

Well you never saw Maris in Fraiser and that went on for about 10 years (asnd I'm not counting shadows and disguises).

True, but they never had her screaming from off screen either.

And it was (mostly) always Niles telling people about her, rather than 'she's here, just not on screen.'

It's the same as Norms wife Vera in cheers the only time you saw her she'd just been hit in the face by a cake (I think?) & her face was covered so you never saw it.

Or, for the older ones here, Rhoda, where Carlton the doorman was never more than a voice except for one time when he was onscreen carrying a board that pretty much covered him entirely.  Personally, I'm pretty glad we don't see Mrs Walowicz onscreen - from Howard's descriptions of her I don't think my eyes could take it!

As a finale, the show wasn't really that special apart from the final 10 minutes (what's that?  Sheldon accepting Amy's hand without comment?) and, while a bit - OK a lot - silly, it was a nice way to end.  Now, let's see if they kill him off in space, leaving Bernadette a widow and Raj in an emotional crisis...

They did show a glimpse of Howards mum though; when the camera zoomed out right at the end you could see Bernadette's father sat in the corner and next to him was a woman which could only be Mrs Wolowitz.

Always found it a funny coincidence that Murray and Music both played Venkman and Garfield. Some say Murray took the Garfield job was out of respect for Lorenzo (who died in 2001) but I remember reading that he always hated Venkmans voice in the cartoon as it sounded too much like Garfield!

I heard that he didn't like the voice of Venkman in TRG either. Don't know what he thought about Dave Coulier's version in season 3 onwards, though. Oh, bloody season 3 onwards, when it became 'Slimer and the Real Ghostbusters' and that bloody annoying little green turd got his own stories. I love Frank Welker but there is only so much of that voice I can take. And it is basically became his 'Shmoo' voice anyway.

EDIT: You can watch full episodes of The Real Ghostbusters, including the shit ones, on Youtube

I heard he took it because he saw it was written by Joel Cohen and mistook it for a film by Joel Coen of the Coen brothers.

I read that too. Unfortunately he couldn't use the same excuse for Garfield 2.

Maybe a thread on small screen for one of the best cartoons of the 80s is needed Shifty, before we hijack this one!

Just Amy. She's fantastic and has gone from a character I hated upon her introduction to my favourite now.



She's so adorable.


A few weeks ago my partner told me that I, apparently, am Amy. At first I was a bit insulted, but the comparison is growing on me

I liked this show to begin with, but not anymore. The whole wacky, zaniness of it gets annoying. Especially Bernadettes squeaky voice. Squeaky voices are NOT funny.

Amy is just all kinds of genius. This scene had me rolling about in hysterics (especially the wink). The only thing that makes me laugh more at the moment is probably New Girl.

I'm still watching but I'm a few eps behind. I think this season's been a bit of a slow starter; I didn't find the first few eps particularly funny, but it has been getting better. And I agree about that scene in Leonard's lab, you really felt something, a shift in their relationship.
