    Yeah Howard-the-ladies-man (if only in his own mind) was always hysterical for me.

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.

    I would suspect that the show has as many female viewers as male viewers. Everyone in my family has loved it from day one. Many women love science and science fiction. I think the marriage adds another funny dynamic to the show. When Howard was constantly search for female companionship, it began to seem repetitive. I think all the characters are growing and expanding to one degree or another, even Sheldon, and I applaud that.

    Next thing you know, Raj might even be able to talk to women without drinking alcohol!

    The only people I know who have watched it from the beginning are women. In fact, I don't know any men who watch it, either now or when it was a sausage fest + Penny.

    I have a seemingly equal number of male and female friends and/or co-workers who have watched it from the beginning.

    Thanks for the thanks, but it wasn't me who posted the link. I wasn't aware of the vanity cards until someone else kindly pointed them out. Mrs. Wolowitz just looks like a big red blob to me, like a beanbag chair. LOL Maybe its time for my annual eye exam!

    Ok time to play devil's advocate. Sheldon said in one episode that if he could afford to he would not have a roommate. My question is why can't he afford it and Penny, lowly cheesecake waitress, can? I know she lives in a one bedroom, but why not Sheldon? Next question, how old are the guys suppose to be?

    Re: Big Bang Theory

    I'm guessing if there needs to be a logical explanation, it's the comparative sizes of the apartments. However, realistically a PhD who teaches and does research at a major university can probably afford to rent his own apartment. Plus, for this show, it puts Sheldon and Leonard together to interact in close range and provides a gathering place for the group. Also, Sheldon doesn't drive, so maybe he needs a roommate to get to work! As far as age, I don't know ... late 20s or around 30? Have they ever said anything about that?
