Crazy Credits

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #111* This is the official "I have nothing worth writing about" vanity card. It will run whenever I have nothing worth writing about. Don't be surprised to see it quite a bit. From now on, when our schedule requires me to deliver a new card and I'm empty, I'll simply say, "Run one-eleven." A check of the one hundred and ten cards I've already written will quickly demonstrate that I should have written this card a long time ago. Why didn't I? Vanity. I had become vain about my vanity cards. I was determined to write a new one each week because, well... I'm just that kind of guy. But I'm older and wiser now. I know when I have nothing to say. And that knowledge is freedom. Freedom from the constant need to win your approval. And more importantly, freedom from the obsessive and relentless need to end each vanity card on a joke. Glenn Beck is sober.* See more »

"The Guitarist Amplification" was another great episode of "The Big Bang Theory"
21 January 2011 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Just caught up with another of last season's "The Big Bang Theory" eps. In this one, Leonard and Penny have a fight about her old "friend" coming to her apartment to sleep on her couch and Sheldon-who hates hearing arguments anytime since they remind him so much of his parents-tries to drown them out to no avail. It doesn't get any better when Sheldon visits Howard (who, as usual, has issues with his mother) or Raj (whose parents on the internet are trying to convince him to attend a cousin's wedding) so he goes to the comic shop, where a still-smitten-with-Penny worker Stuart still is employed, to visit an "alternate universe"...This was another hilarious episode of "TBBT" especially whenever Sheldon holds sway during his scenes. Actually, everyone is great here including the person who plays Stuart. So on that note, "The Guitarist Amplification" comes highly recommended.
