    Re: Big Bang Theory

    I'm starting to get disappointed with Leonard. I loved the actor at first, but his portraying of Leonard with his scrunged up face, looking always up high (cuz he's short, you know), is getting a little much. I'm so glad the writers and directors are making Sheldon and Penny interact so much, they are gold together.
    As an aside, BBT's ratings are through the roof: 11.4 million.

    My feeling on that is that the writers/producers are very aware that the Sheldon/Penny interaction is the meat of the show, and although Johnny Galecki is billed as the star of the show, he's quickly become a supporting character - on this episode his character was completely used to set up Penny with David and any dialogue he has with Sheldon is mostly just the starting point of something hilarious Sheldon is about to say.

    Being a straight man is a thankless task, but someone has to do it and I think he does an admirable job. In my opinion, too much "funny" just gets overwhelming and tends to lose its appeal. Imagine a show of all Kramers. Well, I couldn't stand the one Kramer, but you get my point.

    point taken, but not quite my point. the dynamic of the show has changed since it started, (last season was more about Leonard and his crush on Penny). Sheldon was always the oddity and Leonard the most sane of the 4 (including Raj and Hornywitz) but Leonard's character has taken a back seat to Sheldon's this season, especially since he and Penny have such a great chemistry together.

    Re: Big Bang Theory

    I love the show no matter who is featured - I find it hilarious regardless. Is Sheldon a fan favorite, for me yes; but I do love the interaction between Leonard and Penny as well. (although I find it hard to believe they are real life dating)

    Sheldon, does seem to be featured more and from what I've read he tends to stay in character more through out the filming of the show. But, they are all great!!!

    That is the one thing on this show that totally bugs me. I don't remember that happening when he was on Roseanne (which, admittedly, I didn't watch a whole lot) and I know for a fact that he doesn't do that on My Boys and there are tall characters on that show he interacts with. I think the head up scrunched face thing is a weird characterization choice.

    Monday's show was the funniest I've seen thus far from BBT. I was howling at the end. Sheldon is absolutely ridiculous!
    Wake up and be awesome

    Re: Big Bang Theory

    Since I'm new to it can someone explain a bit of back story for me/
    What was the deal with that awkward hug? Is Sheldon(?) afraid of human contact? or just Penny
