Did You Know?

Trivia:
Jim Parsons audition for the role of Dr. Sheldon Cooper was so good that creator Chuck Lorre immediately asked Parsons to come in for a second one, because Lorre wanted to be 100% sure Parsons was as brilliant as he seemed. After the 2nd audition went perfectly, Lorre cast Parsons on the spot.See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: In one episode, Sheldon states that pets are banned under the roommate agreement, but in another he adopts 25 cats. But it's regularly shown that Sheldon uses the roommate agreement to his own advantage, sometimes unaware, but more often completely ignoring, how it affects Leonard.See more »
Quotes:
Penny:So, what do you say Sheldon, are we your X-Men?
Sheldon:No. The X-Men were named after the X in Charles Xavier. Since I am Sheldon Cooper, you will be my C-Men.
Howard Wolowitz:[as Sheldon walks away] Oh, that's not a good name.

Guilty Pleasure, 16 October 2007
Author: slr_imaging from Canada

This show is definitely one of my guilty pleasures! Tuesdays are spent anxiously awaiting its posting on iTunes so I can download it, as I live in Canada & don't have cable. TBBT is a trip down memory lane for me, as it IS my high school experience (20+ years ago, I was a smarter Penny). I love the characters, especially Leonard who is adorable, and the smarmy yet surprisingly charming Wolowitz. It has the feel of "Frasier Goes To College". I do agree though that they should lose the laugh track - annoying, but not enough to make me stop watching. BTW, very smart of CBS to originally have offered the pilot as a free download or I would never have given it a look. Now I'm an addict!
