Ok, if it's a subtle side comment that only true fans would get, that's cool.

But not "Oh, Penny just got a Priceline commercial with Shatner!"

If we're veering off into guest stars who have a connection with Kaley, I'd like to see Amy Davidson, her on-screen sister from 8 Simple Rules. Maybe Katey Sagal.

(Waaay off topic here, [but haven't we given up on that?] but I was looking up Amy Davidson's name from 8 Simple Rules, and James Garner was in 45 eps. John Ritter, whom Garner replaced after John's untimely death, was in only 31 episodes. Even David Spade was in more than John Ritter, surprisingly. Spade was in 39. At least according to imdb. Now back to main topic...)

Why can't they mine Kaley's past work for guest stars. Just about everyone from Rossane has been on except Rossane and John Goodman.

Ok so half then, but that is a lot.

I would love to see Goodman reprise his role as football coach from Revenge of the Nerds on the show.

I am sure Sheldon would approve of how many posts we've made about the Interstate Highway System.

For my part, the first round of interesting facts all seemed fairly common knowledge. Maybe not for Joe Sixpack, for but geekish types. And my wife and I both said "Eisenhower" immediately. I would assume most of the people here knew it too. (But I suppose I could be wrong.)

I immediately thought "Einsenhower" and then wondered if it were a trick question of some sort since everyone knows that.

I knew it was Eisenhower, but I live 30 minutes from Eisenhower's birthplace and I believe our section of I-70 is named Eisenhower something or another. Also, I'm not very far from the first section of interstate ever built.

This was such a great episode. I found it funny that Sheldon has to have the "thinking man" pose with every picture because apparently all Data does is think. He didn't complain at all when they decided to do each style of pose, but still did his hand under his chin "thinking".

Also really enjoyed the women's arguments about comic books and how it evolved from "how could the boys ever argue over these things?" to the argument over Thor's (magical) hammer.

Wow, I didn't realize they went on THAT long after his death. Shame, looks like she's done mostly a bunch of guest spots (and a movie in production) since 8 simple rules.

But I think the Raj-Howard one was WAY more jokey. At least on a few occasions, they seemed to be going much more seriously that way.. then they go back again (hopefully away from it completely).

I think the issue is transporting that live studio audience out there.

(And yes, TBBT is shot on the Warner Brothers lot.)

The web-comic "The Gutters" which usually parodies ongoing comic strips and the industry itself, had a comment on the girls going into a comic shop in todays episode.

I thought you guys might be amused by it.

Bump -

I am bumping this because a friend of mine and I were talking about this yesterday. We came to the conclusion that the AFF would have been a good candidate for being a fan of some sort of science fiction or fantasy.

Maybe not the games or d&d or comics like the guys, but maybe some books like Darkover or Pern or even with her craving for sex, the fanzines that are written and published by fans and usually are pairing up characters from various tv shows (if you don't know what I mean, google it. And I have seen some with leonard and sheldon together -example from ashton press, Big Bang X-treme by Lorraine Anderson: When a strange crate meant for Area 51 shows up in Leonard's lab (Big Bang Theory), curiosity gets the better of Leonard, Sheldon, Raj and Howard. ps. I don't read them myself but do go to science fiction conventions where there are tables and tables of them sold).

Heck, with her fawning over Penny, I could even see her getting into the ones that pair up the female characters.
