    I agree with that. The funniest scenes are when Sheldon and Penny play off each other. They have such great chemistry. Not in a romantic way, but in a comedic way.

    'I have to go to Pottery Barn.' sounds funnier than 'I have to go to Bed, Bath, and Beyond.' ;)

    I get bonus geek points for having these sheets... since like 1978! I can't believe they started selling sheets again with that same print.

    I guess I get to join you for the points. I also have them. From 1978. Also curtains. :eek:

    Same here, except replace "had" with "have". :)

    I still use the pillowcase. However, the sheets, curtains, etc are in storage with 8 other boxes marked 'star wars stuff'. :eek:

    I do love when the cast acts as an ensemble cast, but let's be honest, Sheldon is the show. Without Sheldon there is no Big Bang Theory. He will always stand out among the rest of the cast. I particularly love his scenes with Penny. They play off each other so well.

    I sort of agree -- the show feels like it's supposed to be mostly about Leonard, but Sheldon gets most of the screen time. At the same time, Sheldon's shtick is pretty much the same each episode. I'll stop there.

    Leonard is the geek you can identify with, while Sheldon is the geek who is safely at enough of a distance that you can laugh at him all the time. I think in the first few episodes, they were more similar, and the writers moved them farther apart to give us that combination. The "straight man" in a comedy team doesn't get the plaudits or the attention, but is just as important to the routine as the other guy.

    I have heard Sheldon often mentioned as the new, younger, geekier Felix Unger of this TV era. He is the finicky, fussy, funny one, while Leonard is his more normal Oscar. This show is often mentioned as the geeky Odd Couple. I love all the characters, and they act great as an ensemble, but Sheldon is clearly the breakout character.

    I don't remember what the specific point was, but Penny knew something about Sheldon before Leonard did.. This seemed wrong.

    I sort of agree, but he's also like Jeff from "Coupling" or Kramer from "Seinfeld" or <Doogie Guy's character> on "How I Met your Mother". They make the show, but there _can_ be too much of them... or more specifically, they need _other_ people to play off of.
