Yeah I was pretty shocked that the guy from 2.5 men beat Jim Parsons out for the Emmy. He is just.so.good.

"The Big Bang Theory" was one of the few season/series premieres I caught this week. I love the show.

I thought it was pretty funny. I wasn't laughing out loud as much as I do sometimes but I laughed.

I agree about Howard's beard. He looks very handsome and much more "grown up." If he can just move out of his mother's house...

I really think my favorite character on the show is Bernadette. There's just something about her that I love.

My question is if Bernadette is a scientist why does she work at the Cheesecake Factory?

I always seem to compare her to when she was Billy in Charmed. She was incredibly fit. I think she looked great.

I think it would be a great storyline to have the nerds, especially Sheldon, work through their acceptance of their good friends' sexuality and welcome Stu into their tight circle as Raj's partner.

Amy Farrah Fowler, as a neuro scientist (in character and in real life) could come up with all sorts of nerd scientific fact!

It is still all about the geek experience. Believe it or not, even nerds and geeks can have satisfying relationships. While their relationships are part of the story line, I don't see it as the whole story line.

I think this show has replaced Seinfeld as my favorite comedy of all time. It is so incredibly well-written and funny. I absolutely love Sheldon and Amy Farrah Fowler. I think that Jim Parsons must be a lot like Sheldon in real life. No one can be THAT good of an actor. He just IS Sheldon if that makes any sense.

All of the characters blend so well together that it is hard to imagine the show without any one of them. Even Howard's mother cracks me up every time. I may be in the minority in wanting Howard and Bernadette to move in with his mother. I think there could be a lot of good storylines there. Also, if they didn't live there it would be hard to work his mother into the storyline since you never see her.

My family and I quote from this show all the time. One of our favorites is "Milk Duds. The most apologetic of all the boxed candies.".

Go to YouTube and find interviews w/ Jim Parsons. He's not like Sheldon at all. In fact , he often has no clue what he's saying.
(just route memorization of the scientific terms. He practices with a pencil in his mouth so that when they shoot he can say them quickly.)

I saw Jim Parson on a talk show once. I was shocked to learn he was a smoker for like 20 years and just recently quit. That why the weight gain.
