    I'm guessing this was several years ago at least. On the HD & Home Theatre Podcast, the guys were talking about some movie/TV show (I honestly don't know which) that was just HD video of a train ride. IIRC, this was in some other country than the U.S. Supposedly it aired on TV (as I said, it may have originally been a movie), and got some huge ratings. It was brought up because back then, in other countries, the amount of stuff actually in HD was limited, and on this podcast they used to talk about the # of commercials in HD vs not in HD, and various science shows.

    (I started listening to this podcast long ago for some reason.. Heck, I *still* record most shows in SD, for space reasons.. But just very recently, have started recording a few in HD regularly, usually the ones I will watch THAT night... and I am thinking of putting a 3 TB drive in my Roamio, even though I still offload some recordings for space reasons now.)

    I really wanted to ask her if she watched BBT but some people really get upset if you tell them they look like someone (if they don't like the someone). I remember one time someone told my sister she looked like Sade (80s singer) and my sister was livid for days...

    I think Howard would have been pissed! :p

    She was clearly married...I am very much married...







    so we just had sex in the bathroom :p

    You know that that's not her real voice?

    Well, it's her voice in that she's the one actually talking like that when they film the episodes. But it's not her "normal" voice. It's just a bit of acting she does as part of the character.

    Well, of course...that seems to be obvious. She seems to change her voice quite a bit in the show...mimicking Howard's mother at times is certainly one example. But she also seems to have various voice qualities at other times...

    Here's an interview with her at Comic-Con. You can see here that her normal voice isn't as high-pitched and squeaky as Bernadette's, although she'll occasionally get higher pitched when talking about certain things.

    Just like Jean Stapleton didn't really have the Edith Bunker voice. It was part of the character.

    Her voice wasn't the Bernadette voice as we know it when she first appeared on the show. I'm only catching up with the show from reruns and it was weird for me to watch her introduction to the show and her voice be "wrong".

    I actually had no idea!

    Every time the woman on the train talked (she was on a business trip with her boss), it just felt so wrong.

    it's weird how much it affected me. The fact that it happened on a train (and we sat across from each other just like they sat on this show was just too much for me to handle. I'm sure she went home to her husband and told him all about the bald fat weirdo sitting across from her :eek:

    If she looks that much like her, I bet she's used to being stared at and she probably knows the reason why.

    Years ago there was a mom of a kid on our son's baseball team that looked just like the actress Geena Davis. I started to mention it and she finished my sentence for me. She had heard it so much, she knew exactly what was about to come out of my mouth. Interesting note: She said she was adopted, so who knows...they might be related.

    I don't get what the big deal is about this...actors and actresses use different voices/accents all the time...

    It's not a big deal, but when you are used to seeing them speak as a character it can be a shock to hear them speak in their real voice. I get that.

    It was that way with me the first time I heard Jean Stapleton on a talk show when I was a kid, because to me she was Edith. It was just odd to not hear the Edith voice coming out of her mouth.

    It's also odd to see interviews with the guy that plays Rick on The Walking Dead because I hear him speaking in his natural English accent.

    OK, if she only has a irritating voice when she gets worked up I guess I can take Melissa Rauchs' phone number instead. Or any of the female cast members for that matter, but I don't want Jean Stapletons'.
