Did You Know?


The scenes in the Texas national science museum are actually shot in the national history museum of LA. See more »


When Sheldon goes through his membership cards, the camera zooms in on the Radio Shack card with his full address and it shows a zip code of 88597. According to USPS, this zip code does not exist and all zip codes in Texas begin with a 7. While this is most likely intentional as the address itself is fake as there is no city named Medford in Texas at all, the zip code used wouldn't be entirely wrong. Some areas of El Paso, Texas are serviced from a USPS distribution center located in New Mexico, which actually uses zip codes in the format of 885XX, and thus those parts of El Paso use that zip code format. (The closest big city to Medford, apparently, is Houston, so in real life, this still would not be the case.) See more »

Young Sheldon

Young Sheldon; a spin-off of The Big Bang Theory, that was created for the fans of Sheldon Cooper is on the contrary, more disappointing for the viewers to watch their beloved character being ripped off by dull writing. Its primary objective from the first episode wasn't set off to create a humorous environment which would have been suffice but as it started aging on screen the target started to blur out and is now shooting arrows in the dark confusing and disappointing the viewers from the offered thin material.

Ian Hermitage at the center of it is palpable for this tone of the series and is appreciative in its role. The relationship between MeeMaw and Sheldon isn't coming off as anticipated even though the genuine effort is clearly visible and admirable. The narrative often attempts to weave out a morale out of the daily conflicts that usually goes around in one's house, but at the compromise of the integrity and the quality of the product, it surely isn't adequate enough to be appreciated.

Focusing on the adult socialization and conversations has always worked and came off in a bit mature sense and addition to that, just to spice it up, the younger characters meddling on their business works like a charm and offers enough laugh especially from Sheldon's perspective. The sibling relationship too, is aptly constructed if not executed, but amidst all these hokum, it still comes out in the limelight shining bright and wise.

Season 02

After a disappointing start from the previous season, the expectation might have gone lower but the necessity is still of quite larger margin and if doesn't evolve any characters more than their offered one-dimension, it still ought to project gripping and enthralling acts.

Carbon Dating And A Stuffed Raccoon

All the conversations are fluid and written brilliantly, whether it be then between rebellious kids or parents complaining about the divorce, it is not thoroughly hilarious, in fact it may not even draw a laugh, but it is surely entertaining and gripping.
