    Boo, Stewart. I cringe every time he shows up. No social skills, no sense of humor, no evident intelligence: Why do these people put up with him? Just a cheap baby-sitter?

    I like him and I think they use him correctly - too much exposure would be, well, too much of him.

    Hah, of course he does. And not to judge (I hope) but would guys the age and position of our heroes still go to comic book stores? They have been high paid techies for a dozen years or so now.

    I don't want to start a new thread so please allow me a slight derail of the discussion of this episode. I've never watched one minute of this show. Many friends and family have told me over the years how funny it is. So if I were to start watching is this show best watched in order from the beginning? Would it be less funny if I jumped in and just watched random episodes?

    Heck my friends still do and they're easily in their 40's and high paid, so it rings true in my circle of geeks and nerds.

    Absolutely. It's where comic book fans go to hang out with other comic book fans. And highly-paid techies are solidly within the core demographic for comic book fans (although the guys on the show are probably a bit young by today's standards).

    You could watch randomly but there is progression in the characters and there is a story line that has continued from the beginning. I would suggest starting there. The beginning. There are some references to older stories from show to show that you wouldn't quite get. .

    UNLESS...... we add a new character to the cast!

    Hmmm, maybe a cute little genius kid?

    My annoyance with the show is that they "devolved" his character. When he originated on the show, he was an art school grad and a good enough artist to have an art exhibition of his own. He was also able to successfully flirt with Penny and ask her out on a series of dates.

    After those initial appearances, the show turned him into a sad-sack beyond the help of therapists and medication. He lost all sense of social skills, and is generally now seen as creepy. He can't even live on his own for an extended period of time, and has had to move in with Raj, Mrs. Wolowitz, and now Howard and Bernadette.

    I wonder if I'm the only person who isn't into comic books or a nerd, yet who has loved this show. I also love some of Chris Hardwick's stuff and watch his 'Talking' and at midnight shows and enjoy them immensely. But put me in the middle of any of the nerdy stuff, even the Star Wars type of Sci Fi and I'm out.

    I don't go to comic book stores anymore because it makes me sad that I cannot own all the comics and read them all. So, I read them on line.

    It looked more like an audio waveform.

    Nobody knows if it is something specific and the artist who designed the shirt can't really be determined to ask. BTW he wore the same shirt on s08e02 The Junior Professor Solution.

    And here I thought I liked you!

    Nerdy stuff is fun! Come over to the Dark Side! Once you start down that path, forever will it control your destiny!

    This is an immensely popular show, and I would guess millions watch it who are not nerds. I know of 3-4 family members who watch it, that are def not in the nerd/geek/etc camp.

    Of course you're a nerd. You're here in a TiVo forum discussing your favorite TV shows. You're a media nerd! :D
