That wasn't the issue. It was saying "he played a recurring character on Bones" which was pointed out early in the thread. As to whether or not he sounded like that character, that is a matter of opinion, not the solid fact you seem to think it is, which you once again expressed by the use of the phrase "making the point".

If you just wanted to express your opinion and add to the discussion, you damn well shouldn't have quoted me since my post was merely positing a possible reason for of the lack of an obvious accent.

I have watched the exchange between Leonard and Cole several times and even when I am expressly listening for it, I can barely hear any signs of a British accent much less the obvious one exhibited by Vincent Nigel-Murray.

For the record, I don't think Penny actually said he had an English accent, only that he "came over from England," and then Leonard started with the accent talk, and Penny just agreed that "yeah, they're the best".

But I do suspect that in the next episode (if he appears) he will have more of an English accent.

FWIW I heard the accent in his stairway talk with Leonard, and he sounded just like he does on interviews using his natural voice, not the Americanized version he uses on Alphas, so different strokes and all, you didn't hear it, others of us did.

He pulled out a hacky-sack from a small wooden box and started counting... never getting past 8 or 9 "hits". The "43" was his record.

Whatchoo talkin' bout, Diane? Seriously though, I have no problem with this. Some heard it, others didn't.

Often times, "In my opinion" is implied in posts since such things are obviously opinions.
Still if I was unclear, there was no need to be rude.

Oh dear God, I'm sorry that I thought that there was an obvious accent.
I'm sorry that I used your post as a jumping off point for my thoughts on the subject.

Rest assured, I will strive to not drag you into discussions of trivial affairs like the perceived accent of a walk on character on a tv show episode in which you are already participating.

Pretty awesome, cool to see them having so much fun. There is another longer version that someone filmed with a camera phone on youtube too, this one is edited by CBS.

Big Bang Theory Flash
Too bad they ruined it with a laugh track.


Oh, wait....

I thought it was odd that he needed to keep his record on the blackboard, since he has an eidetic memory.

so, I have been trying to see if Jim Parsons is in the back there somewhere.

Because he totally reminds me of someone who can either dance beautifully or completely not even a little bit at all.

(I fit into the latter category, which is tough when you're trying to be an actor. )

He stays standing by the couch the whole time.

I don't think it was for memory..more of a motivation tool..and for the plot.

I still don't understand how Penny and Leonard are a couple. I know he's into her because he thinks she is hot, but don't see much there beyond that. And to go from wanting to dump him 6 episodes ago to saying she loved him seemed forced.

They are obviously going to test it with Sheldon's assistant and she's probably a better fit for him.

Totally agree, and in fact, when Penny said "I love you, but you drive me crazy!" I though Leonard was going to say "well, if I drive you that crazy, maybe we shouldn't be together", but then the keyed on the "I love you" part instead.

I would much rather see Leonard with Sheldon's assistant. She's damn cute (and smart, too!). But then once again, poor Raj gets left with no girl.

That was one of the best parts.

You think women are hitting on me and I'm not even aware of it?
Pretty sure....

I'm pretty sure they do. I went to a recording of Two and a Half Men a few years ago, and there was an empty seat next to me up until just before they started filming. Then, an older man showed up and took the seat. He seemed to know the the people there working on the show. He had a big, booming laugh, and left right after they finished filming.

If he wasn't a professional laugher, I'd be very surprised.

Just have to say Kaley Cuoco was looking very good both in this episode and especially dancing in the Flash Mob video.

This is the one show for which I love reading the episode thread here BEFORE I watch.

Went to YouTube and watched one 'full version' of the flash mob bit and didn't see Galecki out there, except for when he went blowing past everybody just before Bernadette did her little thing.

Now I can look forward to watching it today.

This one mixes the good footage with the cell phone "extended cut" and has the good ending.

Extended Version
