Either way, my tendencies led me to a little show on CBS called The Big Bang Theory. I love this show! I only started watching it regularly about a year ago when B was deployed. I have since borrowed both the first and second seasons from the Pensacola public library, and B and I watched them straight through together. Now I love it even more.
Dr. Sheldon Cooper (played by Jim Parsons) is my favorite character, and sometimes I sit there and equate everything he does to Asperger's. It's never been said in the show--they just call him an "anal nutbag"--but someone brought it up to me once as a possibility and now I can't stop thinking about it when I watch. I also love most of the female characters. It started out with just wannabe-actress Penny, but now they've brought on some other strong females that really give the boys their match. Did you know that the girl who played Blossom is on this show? Yep, Mayim Bialik, who in real life actually does have a PhD in Neuroscience, has been playing Sheldon's 'match' since the end of last season.
What's a rambling post about a great television show without clips? First of all, the title of my post was inspired by this game:
And if you ever meet another fan of the show, they'll probably mention the wonderful lullaby "Soft Kitty":
Yep, definitely singing any future babies of mine to sleep with that one.
Also, the theme song was done by Barenaked Ladies (remember them?). I think it's delightfully catchy, and every time I hear it I sing along . . . but only to one line: "We built the pyramids." That's probably one of my weirder quirks. Yep, such a nerd.
If you've never seen it and want to give it a try, a new episode is on tonight at 8/7c on CBS. Or you can watch it online tomorrow at the CBS website, like I have to do because it conflicts with choir rehearsal.
Anyone else out there love this show?
