In the opening scene of the episode, Wil Wheaton is wearing The Guild (2007) shirt. Up until the previous year, he had been playing a recurring role in that series. See more »

Sheldon Cooper: Hello. I'm Dr. Sheldon Cooper. And welcome to Sheldon Cooper Presents: Fun with Flags. Before we get started, I'd like to announce the winner of our Design Your Own Flag competition, but I can't. The only entry was from gamygamer seventy-five, and I know that was a jpeg of your buttocks. Now, this week we have a very special episode where we explore the flags of the popular entertainment franchise 'Star Trek', and to help me I'm pleased to introduce internet personality, uh, former...

Crazy Credits


I need to apologize. In an earlier vanity card I made a derisive comment about a popular reality show because I thought its premise - a group of single women compete with one another to win the affections of, and ultimately marry, an eligible man - was more threatening to the sanctity of marriage than gay people tying the knot. After careful consideration, I now realize that I couldn't have been more wrong. My mistake was that I was looking at the show through the tired old eyes of 60's feminism. But we are clearly in a post-feminist era. The patriarchal sexism that treated women as chattel and dictated how much they could earn or how much control they could have over their own bodies is a thing of the past, a curious relic of a dark, unenlightened time. Likewise, the idea that a woman without a man was somehow incomplete has long ago been consigned to the overflowing dustbin of humankind's misbegotten thinking. Women are now free to do anything they want, and that includes going on a reality show and using all their female wiles to snag Mr. Right.

I really don't know what else to say except, "I'm sorry and, um... you go, girl!" See more »

"The Habitation Configuration" ep of "The Big Bang Theory" was a pretty good ep and that's enough for this show considering all the hilarious ones previous
6 December 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this ep of "The Big Bang Theory": Amy's directing Sheldon's "Fun with Flags" show with guest Wil Wheaton who brings the Federation of Planets flag. Unfortunately, Amy's first-time status concerning said job gives her an ego which ruffles Wil and Sheldon, not really knowing what to do, does not defend his girlfriend in front of him, resulting in her leaving and Wil and Sheldon going to dinner together instead. Meanwhile, Bernadette is wondering when hubby Howard is moving out of his mother's house and with her. Howard does seem to still spend all his time at his mom's, doesn't he? I'll stop there and just say while there's plenty of funny lines and scenes, it's not as hilarious as previous eps this season. Still, it's a good enough ep this "The Habitation Configuration" so I give this one a pass...
