    There is no signal theft to promote, at least in regard to DirecTV (I don't follow Dish). The current generation of authorization cards have been hack proof for several years - even by true geeks.

    Did Sheldon play Mario on his laptop with an emulator in one episode? Seems like this would fall under the same category.

    Yeah, the "they accidentally get drugged" and "they find some drugs and decide to do them" (e.g. Roseanne and lots of other sitcoms) plots are really lame.

    She should have just done a Mel Gibson and ran into a wall.

    Yeah, but she knew she'd be yelling for help, so as a stretch, I can see her doing it in advance, since she knew it was Sheldon who'd find her.

    I sure thought I've seen him on a talk show or perhaps a 'red carpet interview' (possibly even the "jokey" ones like some of the guys do on Jimmy Kimmel Live), and he had either the identical or almost identical accent. Sure, he could still have been "doing it" since people expected it..

    I loved when Howard pulled out the brisket and potatoes!

    A. I *totally* heard that in Sheldon's deadpan delivery voice. LOL!

    B. If only the writers of BBT could be that funny. :(

    I used to have a shoulder that dislocated easily and was very difficut for the ER to put back (I've since had surgery). The dislocated shoulder plotline was giving me the heebyjeebies, but after being reminded of the Mel Gibson thing - not so much, relatively.

    The chance that anyone who works on a writing staff for a network tv show has never been high is probably less than zero.

    By the way DirecTv does have a device to allow remote location viewing.

    I think you're wasting your time watching this show waiting for it to come around to your sense of humor. Neither of your "improved" versions of those scenes is funnier than what was on the show.

    Humor is subjective, of course, but surely by now you can see that what you think is funny and what the people who create this show think is funny are not in alignment. There's no reason to think that either you or they will change.
