it's kind of cool to see Sheldon and Leonard in an alternate universe but i wouldn't want to live there!
29 November 2016 | by mossmangeneSee all my reviews

love it. proof positive of the multiverse theory. true, the new pilot and series are much better. this one wouldn't have had the same impact. reminds me of the book "the many loves of Dobie Gillis" each story was completely different if i remember correctly. interesting....Sheldon a non virgin? an "ass" man? people don't seem to like Katy. she's pretty hot to me. she's not penny but penny didn't exist at the time. there's a ton of lines that were used in what we now call TBBT. the first episode i saw was "nerdvana annihilation" knew nothing of the show. didn't like it. even though i've been a nerd all of my life. then i caught "the desperation emanation" that's when i fell in love with the whole concept. anytime the nerd gets the hot chick is fine with me. if anyone knows Paul George, Sarah Slaby or anyone who studied Crypto in the army in 75 please tell them that "Q" is alive and well!get in touch!
