While I downloaded this as a free offering on iTunes, I nevertheless feel that I paid too much - essentially 21:45 of my life that I will never get back. The story revolves around a woman whose friends throw her a surprise birthday party. She is insecure, controlling and unhappy with her life. At least we more or less are able to glean that from what little we learn about her from her actions and side comments she makes mostly to herself. While I usually like Jeanne Tripplehorn, I found her wooden and unsympathetic in this role. Not that she had much to work with - the script was vapid and the premise superficial. Avoid this trap.
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!
